This is an excellent school. I attended from 9th to 12th grade. The classes are fairly small, (my graduating class was less than 50 students) so it feels more like a family. I knew everyone in my classes, sometimes that wasn't so great, but I still knew them. The teachers are wonderful. All of them genuinely care about their students academically and personally. Everyone in this school, students and faculty, are typically much less apathetic than those in public schools. They all actually care. That is difficult to find in a school. I did not attend this school during elementary school, but a lot of my friends did. Based on their experiences, I am sad that I did not. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in art, drama, dance, or music, but also anyone who wants a school that is small and has a good community.
Idaho Arts Charter school has an enormous amount of opportunities available to all students. We focus on the arts- music, dance, visual arts, and drama. It allows a free flow of creativity, and it applies those arts into regular classes as well, making the most difficult classes more enjoyable. We do not have sports available in our curriculum, however. Students need to go to another school to join teams. We are fully supportive of them however, and will attend games and such. We are a very close knit group of people, and our teachers, more often than not, are our best friends and do whatever they can to make comprehension easier for us.
