DRIGGS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - Teton County, Idaho school officials cut two ribbons over two nights this week to open new elementary schools in Driggs and Victor.

The schools were built using a $37.2 million construction bond approved by 79% of voters in November 2017. In addition to the new schools, the bond paid for renovations at four other buildings in the district.

Built by Headwaters Construction, the buildings are virtually identical. The Victor school has three classrooms in each grade and Driggs boasts four classrooms at each grade. Both were built with room for future expansion.

The 49,580 square-foot Driggs Elementary School took 18 months to build, while the 44,871 square-foot Victor Elementary School took 17 months.

Teachers, staff and volunteers were at work Thursday moving school supplies and furnishings into the new buildings.

  1. But will the new facilities help boost their test scores? I doubt it. Teton Valley has a history of attracting mediocre teachers that are just there for the lifestyle and the mountains. I know because I used to live there and I finally had enough and moved to another school district that cares about its students. I would never expose my kids to such horrible teachers and administration ever again!
