This school has helped me believe it is possible for me to get the education I craved and needed. The community is friendly and welcoming, the amount of great opportunities are endless, and the way of learning is always fun and exciting! I hope that they excel more into better themselves, I also hope that the minimal negatives become great positives! :)

Elementary school is pretty good, but the high school and middle school level is not. There are a handful of good teachers, the math teachers are the worst though. They’re nice people, but their teaching is bad. The social environment is extremely toxic, the administration likes to say the small school makes everyone like a family. But in reality there’s a stark contrast between those that are apart of that family and those that aren’t. They also like to say that there Is minimal or no bullying. Which is somewhat true, I’ve never seen a fight or anything, but the social aspect can be extremely depressing if you don’t fit in their box. And the teachers don’t make it much easier, if you’re struggling you could just go unnoticed. Its the stereotypical clique based school, And everyone who isn’t apart of one is just the standard outcast. If you have a hard time making friends or you’re just a little different, you’ll probably have no friends. Do not recommend.
I’ve been going to this school for a long time now, and I can say that the teachers there really care about the education and well being of their students. It’s a nicely sized school that is fairly close with another and students care about others well being. It’s a good place to express any artistic abilities as well. There is dance classes with a studio, and art studio with many supplies, band and orchestra, and rock band group, and a great drama department. If your kid feels out of place, Idaho Arts will make them feel like they belong.
