I think North Idaho STEM Charter Academy (NISCA) is an amazing school! They specialize in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. I currently want to major in some type of science when I get to college, which is why NISCA is extremely beneficial to me and my future. The teachers are very helpful and since it is a smaller school, there is more one-on-one time with the teachers for extra help.

I adore this school. Having come from many others, I can confidently say this is the best one yet. I've never had so many opportunities in my life. You'll read a lot of reviews that say STEM is too hard, or they expect too much. The students writing these reviews are usually the ones who leave, and that's because STEM is not a school for slackers. You will quickly learn to pick up the pace and really be prepared for college and real life. STEM offers incredible opportunities, including resources to find scholarships and even graduate with your Associate's from NIC before receiving your high school diploma. You only have to be willing to go out and get them. If academics aren't your thing and you don't want a school with teachers that expect the best, then don't come to STEM. If you want all of these things, opportunity, a close-knit community and a school that genuinely cares about every individual student's path to success- and are willing to do the work-, STEM is the school for you.
I love this school like no other. The amount of opportunities available here are absolutely incredible and you won’t find them anywhere else. While it is a STEM school, there is also emphasis on English, Reading, and Writing— they don’t get left out. History and Civics are also massive parts of the curriculum, and some of the hardest classes. We don’t have any sports teams, but we manage to keep plenty busy with the tons and tons of STEM activities available to us, including First Tech Challenge (FTC), which allows us to build and program real, working robots, and the Invention Convention, which has already had huge beneficial impact on my future. The teachers here are also amazing. I only wish we had more clubs— the only one is chess club, and ends at fifth grade. I can’t thank this school enough for the amount of incredible academic and career opportunities they’ve given me.
