About This School
Writing Workshop students miss one hour of the school day; their course supplements public school curriculum. Core program students leave their schools for two hours per day. Their integrated humanities program supplants work in those subjects at the public schools. High School students supplant MDHS courses with a NFS class in their block schedule.
Because students come out of the public schools for only one, two, or three daily classes, the public schools receive full funding for each NFS student. NFS programs reduce public class sizes, and the schools still receive their full allotment of tax dollars.
Accredited by The Northwest Association of Accredited Schools since December, 2000, NFS offers students a significantly challenging education, preparing them for college-level work.
In 2010, The North Fork School had 5 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Idaho average is 18 students per full-time equivalent teacher.
