Flathead has a great learning environment and had given me a great High School Experience! My teachers are all passionate about what they do and are always ready to encourage me to push myself. Overall, the best thing about Flathead is the positive energy from staff and students. Everyone is encouraged to honor both themselves and other students. Everyone is taught the importance of having personal pride and school pride where everyone does their best for themselves and the community. I have had some amazing experiences from Flathead and would encourage other people attend!

Flathead Has much pride! The school is very supporting in many things such as the Special Ed students and many clubs. The food can use some work, but other than that the teachers are very supportive!
The teachers are very helpful in providing well thought out care for students and student who need extra help. The students are very well taken care off throughout each class and through the school day like lunches before and after school. The administration is determined to make relationships with all the students and make an effort to know each and every one of us. Our sports are great learning experiences because we have amazing coaches to teach young kids like us about maturity, leadership, and integrity.
