Idaho Education Trends show Moscow graduating seniors continue to college

MOSCOW, ID - Moscow's School District is another Latah County school district that's thriving despite the state's budget limitations.

Idaho-Ed-Trends-Dot-Org is a website that uses data from the Idaho State Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics, and the National Student Clearinghouse. The site shows the Moscow School District sends more graduating seniors to college than both the state and national averages.

"We offer a lot of AP courses to help prepare students for college, and then we also make sure that our instruction has a lot of rigor and relevance, which helps to motivate them to learn," said Moscow School District Director of Curriculum Sarah Hanchey.

The Idaho Ed Trends website is sponsored by the JA and Kathryn Albertson Foundation, and its current statistics are based off the 2011-2012 school year. When it comes to per-pupil expenditures, it shows that the Moscow district spends almost $3,000 more per-student than the state's average, but that's still less than the national per-pupil expenditure.
