For information on this school visist the Robert Stuart Middle School PTSA website: www.robertstuartptsa.webs.com This is where educated parents go. Every school is what the parent/student makes of it. All schools can be great if we all put in a little volunteer time.

I have had 3 children attend Robert Stuart Junior High School. I believe the education my children had at Stuart was great. All three have been very successful in school because of the wonderful teachers and administration this school has had. I rate the school an A+! Thank you for all you did for my kids.

I did lots of research before I decided to move to Twin Falls, Id and everything they protrayed there not. After several meetings with teachers and the Princable , the only thing they worry about is getting there federal funding , we have had teachers tell parents I don't like your child so I gave them a bad grade, teacher counts the ISAT scores on the students grades. (This is to see how well the teachers are teaching) The district assessment which is suppose to show the school district where it may need improvment gets held against the students as well , my 2 children are on Honor Roll , but that does not make these policies there pushing correct . Mke the teachers accountable for not teaching. There now punishing your students for having late work with Saturday school or an in school suspension

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.
