Joint School District No. 2
The district continues to work to expand opportunities and to further improve our academic programs. In spring 2008, students in 5th, 8th and 12th grade demonstrated their abilities on performance-based academic measures. Students in grades 3 through 8 and also 10th grade took the spring Idaho Standards and Achievement Tests (ISAT), and as a district our students again out-performed the state average and the scores of the other large districts in Idaho.
Since 2000, the district has opened 7 elementary schools, two middle schools, one alternative middle school one, high school, and one alternative high school. In the past ten years, the district has opened schools at a faster pace than any district in the history of the state of Idaho. With an additional 1,500 students per year projected to move into the district, this rate of new school construction is expected to continue into the foreseeable future.
