My grandchild is being forced to go to this horrible school. She has not learned anything. I'm hoping we can get her into a better school next year, but sadly I think she will have to repeat the grade because she will be so far behind. She is a very smart girl, but the teachers have not done their job. Most kids should be reading by now at her age. They have not even started teaching it.

Culdesac School has been listed as one of the worst-performing schools in Idaho by the State Department of Education (see their report card). The school had an outstanding science teacher who had raised ISAT scores in science to the statewide levels (half of her students scored ADVANCED!), but the school fired her in spring 2017 for showing a film about evolution. Culdesac's science test scores, along with English and math scores, are now on life support.
