Don't Forget Late Start Mondays!

Every Monday morning, school will start an hour later to give our teachers an hour of dedicated time each week to focus on student achievement. Teachers use this time to study student achievement data; review and implement the new curriculum that has been developed to meet the new Idaho Core Standards; and discuss teaching strategies, best practices and interventions that will address students' specific learning needs. Learn more.

Teachers working together  

Elementary StudentsIdaho Falls School District 91 has 12 elementary schools serving students in grades K through 6. Our teachers and staff strive to provide students with a culture that empowers, instruction that engages and technology that enables. The focus in Idaho Falls School District 91 is on individual student growth, and our staff is committed to helping every child become a lifelong learner. 

Our goal is for students to gain mastery in the traditional core subjects of English, Math, Science and Social Studies. We also want them to learn the 21st Century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, which will enable them to become lifelong learners and good citizens.
The curriculum in our schools is aligned with state and national standards, and is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and attributes they will need to be successful beyond high school. Students also receive instruction in P.E., music and technology. 

The district also offers a number of programs catering to students’ unique needs, such as a gifted and talented program; programs for children with special needs and programs for students with limited proficiency in English. 

Idaho Falls School District 91 has two middle schools -- Eagle Rock and Tayorview -- serving students in grades 7 and 8. Eagle Rock Middle School is on Idaho Falls' west side and feeds Skyline High School. Taylorview Middle School is on the east side of town and feeds into Idaho Falls High School.

In adopting a middle school system, Idaho Falls School District 91 is striving to provide young adolescents with schools specifically designed to meet their intellectual and development needs, and to give them the foundation they will need to be successful beyond high school.

Our middle schools use proven strategies to help ensure student success, including:

  • Academically rigorous classes and an aligned curriculum that helps prepare students for high school.
  • A comprehensive advisory period that provides students with frequent and meaningful opportunities to meet with teachers and assess their academic, personal and social development. (Research shows that advisory periods can improve academic performance and student attitudes about school, and reduce dropout rates.)
  • Dynamic teacher teams with a common planning time so teachers can collaborate on instructional strategies, analyze data and student assessments and discuss the best way to meet students’ needs

The district has implemented the state’s new Middle Level Credit System, which was designed to hold 7th and 8th grade students more accountable. Under the system, students must earn 80% of their total credits before moving on to the next grade.

Idaho Falls School District 91 has four high schools serving students in grades 9-12. Teachers and staff strive to ensure students graduate with the knowledge, skills and attributes they will need to be successful beyond high school. 

The district has two comprehensive high schools -- Idaho Falls High School and Skyline High School --, as well as Compass Academy, a magnet high school that is part of the New Tech Network. Then, for students who have not been successful in a traditional high school setting, there is Emerson Alternative High School, which operates on a block schedule.  

Our high schools offer a wide array of AP and dual enrollment classes, which provide students with the opportunity to earn college credit while they are still in high school. The state supports these efforts through its Advanced Opportunities Programs, which can help families pay for those credits. 

In addition, students can earn real-world experience and certifications in many professions through the district's Career and Technical Education (CTE) . Classes are available in careers such as certified nursing assistant, emergency medical training, pharmacy tech, culinary arts, automotive services, early childhood professions, computer networking basics and more.
