Idaho Arts Charter School has a very impressive arts program. There are a ton of opportunities for music students in different genres and groups to play in. The varsity dance team is consistently one of the best in the state. All the arts teachers I have met are passionate and wonderful teachers. Despite limited class choices, the academic department provides several good classes, and does not pile on enough homework to overwhelm students combined with the arts programs.

Amazing school in so many ways! Broad array of art focuses to choose from, with supportive, invested teachers. It is also the only school of its kind in this area, that truly supports diversity and encourages individuality in a safe enviroment.
Very good classes. The teachers really care about their students. It is very small though. This results in a lot of drama in middle school. There are no
AP classes offered. There are some dual credit classes. Very good at incorporating the arts. There are many music, drama, art, and dance programs. They even have a ceramic studio and filming class.
