Positive Impact

“We’ve had five children attend White Pine. This is our seventh year being there. We have been very impressed with the dedicated teachers and administration.  We have liked how the school adjusts according to the student level. They are there to give extra help or challenge academically, according to the need of the student. We also appreciate the communication between the parents and teachers. Emails or newsletters are set home regularly. White Pine has been a good school for my family.”

Answer to Our Questions

White Pine Charter School was the answer to our question… how do we find an excellent classroom setting, high academic standards, with a culture and learning environment that gave our kids the best opportunity for success?  We had tried private school, home schooling, and WPCS was the answer for both of our children.  They continued on through middle school at WPCS and have now successfully transitioned to public high school.

Worthwhile School

“We like that White Pine Charter School offers Spanish, music, gym, art, etc. on a weekly basis. My kids enjoy being able to meet with other classes in their grade and work with multiple people. We love that the teachers work with our kids at their level. They give them assignments catered specifically to them, whether they’re advanced or behind in a subject. There is less lecture and more hands on and imaginative work. We’re very pleased with the academics at this school.”

Academic Achievement

White Pine Charter School received the designation as a Top Performing K-8 school for Math Growth for 2017-18. A top performer means our school ranked in the 90th percentile or above on any indicator in the accountability framework.  We were also recognized as a Goal Maker. Goal makers are schools whose overall performance meets or exceeds the interim measures of progress toward the state’s long-term goals for English language arts/literacy, math, growth toward English language proficiency and graduation rate.

White Pine received a maximum 5-Star rating from the state of Idaho for the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 school years, which was the last time this rating system was administered. White Pine was the only charter school in eastern Idaho to receive this top rating, and our middle school was the only one in Eastern Idaho to receive the 5-Star rating.
