School Report Card

For the past two years (2020 & 2019), Elizabeth Ide has received an official summative designation on its School Report Card as being “exemplary”, which is attributed to the dedication in growing by our students and staff. Designations are based on assessment, attendance, course and grade data, climate survey participation, and graduation data.
