This is a great school. There are fabulous teachers and some that really could use improvement. The kids are a good mix and your student should be able to find some like-minded friends. The campus is lovely and the school offers great programs from sports to community service clubs. I think this is an up and coming school and that the test scores will continue to improve.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and language usage, and in grades 5, 7 and 10 in science. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
