Idaho Falls School District Reviews

Most teachers in the Idaho Falls School district are great. They get to know the kids and are willing to help whenever possible. Some of the schools, like Idaho Falls High School, are somewhat old which can be detrimental to the learning environment, but the school spirit stays true and strong. There are many, many clubs to be apart of so one just has to find an interest and they will most likely find a club with people who are similar to them. Overall a good school district.

I love the pride that the students at my school have. We “bleed orange and black” as some may say. The school building itself is not very safe and very outdated, but we are trying to pass a new bond to build a new school. The teachers at IF are wonderful and I have never had a bad experience with one. The administration of Idaho Falls High School is not the best and can be unfair in some aspects, but they get their jobs done and keep the school running. Overall I would not trade my experience at my school for anything. I loved being apart of this community and growing and learning with my peers.
The teachers are generally pretty good and helpful but sometimes you get one that couldn’t be bothered. The schools, especially Idaho Falls High school, are falling apart. Literally. The kids are okay, most don’t really care about their education and are just there because they have to be. It’s an okay school district.
