Best Public Schools in Zip Code 83355


The 83355 zip code area is home to three schools - Wendell Elementary School, Wendell Middle School, and Wendell High School - that serve a predominantly Hispanic student population. While Wendell District as a whole struggles, with a 1-star rating, Wendell High School stands out as the highest performer, ranking 76th out of 106 Idaho high schools and earning a 2-star rating.

In contrast, Wendell Elementary School has faced significant academic challenges, ranking in the bottom 10% of Idaho elementary schools and earning a 0-star rating. Its proficiency rates in math and English language arts are well below the state averages. Wendell Middle School also lags behind, with low proficiency rates across multiple subjects. These academic struggles are likely exacerbated by the high rates of poverty, with 42.9% to 75.3% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch.

The variation in performance between the schools suggests potential issues with vertical alignment and continuity of the educational program within the district. Additionally, the relatively low spending per student, compared to the state average, may be a factor limiting the schools' ability to provide the necessary supports and resources for their students. Addressing these systemic challenges and targeting interventions to support the high-need student populations could be crucial in improving academic outcomes and equity across the Wendell schools.
