Hard work. Hard statistics. Open doors.
Since 1996, The North Fork School has offered academically rigorous, integrated humanities and mathematics programs to Idaho students, who are dually-enrolled in McCall-Donnelly public schools. Accredited through AdvancED by The Northwest Accreditation Commission, privately-funded North Fork School programs reduce public class sizes without affecting the full allotment of tax dollars that fund local public schools.
In September of 2007, students from across the country, as well as those who traveled abroad, began participating in North Fork classes through Skype and other online technologies. Current North Fork students live in Idaho, California, and Massachusetts, while previous years have seen students join classes from Montana, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Students have also regularly attended North Fork classes from Sweden, Thailand, and Germany during study abroad and family vacations.
North Fork School Middle School curricula prepares students across the country for academic, college-preparatory boarding schools, as well as for rigorous High School academics. If not attending boarding school, students continue with the North Fork High School curricula to build college-level skills that enable them to succeed in top tier colleges nationwide.
Ten classes have graduated with some experience in North Fork School since 2001. Of students in these classes, the OVERALL COLLEGE graduation rate is 89%
- of students who attended NFS for more than three years in core classes, the COLLEGE graduation rate is 100%, with most in high-paying professional careers, or pursuing post-graduate degrees.
