Ammon District and Curriculum
The district follows the Idaho Common Core Standards. Though they’re given mandated standards, teachers are still free to tailor their lessons to serve their students. The school strives to provide a curriculum that is well-developed and content-rich while being consistent with these standards, which articulate the fundamentals. The curriculum is rigorous and internationally benchmarked, but also intended to be supportive or students who are both well below or well above grade-level expectations. Rather, all students are offered opportunities for success.
We currently cover the following Ammon-area school district: Bonneville Joint School District No. 93.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ammon District Curriculum
Students are expected to demonstrate independence in their learning. They are expected to understand and analyze complex texts of varying genres and disciplines. They are also expected to construct persuasive arguments and be able to convey intricate information while using a range of supporting evidence. Students should be able to independently recognize a speaker’s key points, ask for clarification or evidence, and ask relevant questions of a text or speaker.
Students are taught to build on others’ ideas as well as put forth their own ideas. A broad vocabulary is also taught, as well as standard English language and grammar skills. The ultimate goal is that students become self-directed students, who can seek out, critically assess, and use resources to help them with their learning, from teachers and peers, to print and digital reference sources. Students are given a strong foundation across a wide range of subject areas.

Chalk Talk: Community College
Many prospective students view community colleges as a less favorable option than a four-year college, but there can be several advantages to community colleges they might not have considered. Cost is, of course, the primary one; community colleges cost a tenth of what even state colleges cost. Class size is another advantage. Community colleges provide basic classes—the same classes that most students have to take, regardless of major. This means that at a state college, or any large college, these classes might have two or three hundred students in them. Smaller class sizes can really be beneficial in these classes, because instructors are more approachable in them, and this can mean a lot when considering that these general classes are often the ones students are most likely to struggle in, since they are far removed from the student’s interests.
