School Report Card

In 2020 & 2019, Elizabeth Ide received an official summative designation on its School Report Card as being “exemplary”, which is attributed to the dedication to growing by our students and staff. These designations are based on assessment, attendance, course and grade data, climate survey participation, and graduation data from 2019 and 2018.
