Boise Schools went back to full time in person learning this week. I have a 7 year old who goes to Mary McPherson with Ada County and we have been in person learning for a while now. Even though my boy loved the freedoms of being home and claims he wants to be home, even though when I pick him up he is excited to tell me about what a fantastic day he had at school, silly, moody child. According to the summery ranking for great schools Mary McPherson got a 9/10.

Website called, they are an independent non-profit that use a variety of indicators and metrics from schools to give a well-rounded picture of how effectively each school serves its students. The rating calculation is based on four ratings or metrics: Student Progress Rating or Academic Progress Rating, College Readiness Rating (high schools only), Equity Rating (designed to measure how well a school serves the academic development of disadvantaged student groups), and Test Score Rating.

The ratings follow a 1-10 scale, where 10 is the highest and 1 is the lowest. Ratings at the lower end of the scale (1-4) signal that the school is “below average,” 5-6 indicate “average,” and 7-10 are “above average.” Lets see how Idaho schools ranked.
