Sweet Montour & Ola Elementary Schools
Both schools are rural schools in the Emmett School District and lie in the shadow of the beautiful Butte valley.
Sweet-Montour Elementary is a K-5 school that is unique in that it has small multi-age classrooms - K-1, 2-3, and a 4-5. Students often support each other's learning by being mentors to the younger children and mentees to the older children, creating a family-like atmosphere.
Ola Elementary was built in 1910, and is on the National Register of Historic Buildings. It is Idaho's oldest two-room school house and has grades K-6. While many students are third and fourth generation Ola families, staff work to see students stay current with technology and world wide issues.
Each school has a lead teacher, who manages daily operations, and a part-time principal, Stephen Joyner, who oversees instruction, curriculum, assessment and building management.
