Treasure Valley Schools (Idaho)

local schools

I often have clients ask me about our local schools so I thought my blog was a great opportunity to create a resource for myself and others.  Below you will find links to the Treasure Valley School Districts.  As you are reviewing schools, you will note several options are available.  Our local education system offers regular schools, year round schools, magnet and STEM schools, charter schools, private schools and virtual schools.  Each district page will link you to the individual school’s website where you may obtain further registration and contact information.

Boise Independent School District

Caldwell School District

Emmett Independent School District

Kuna School District

Middleton School District

Nampa School District

West Ada School District (Meridian, Eagle Star)


What is a STEM School?

A school where the curriculum has an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

What is a Magnet School?

A school that focuses on one subject area throughout its curriculum.  Examples include performing arts, mathematics or science.

What is a Charter School?

A public school that is independently run.  It operates more free from regulation but has greater accountability for academic outcomes.

What are Year Round Schools?

The academic calendar is organized for continuous learning.  Instead of the traditional schedule with summers off, vacation time is dispersed in shorter breaks throughout the year.

What is a virtual school?

All student services and education are performed through internet technology.  Here are a few local options I am aware of:

Idaho Virtual Academy

Idaho Connects Online School

Idaho Distance Education Academy
