Idaho Falls Senior High School Reviews

IFHS lacks a large variety of "elective" like classes, making harder for students to discover what a good career path would be. Also, many of the teachers are filling in spots for the amazing teachers who have retired, and these new teachers don't seem to have the desire to teach students at a high level. Some of the AP classes will not help you pass the AP test unless you are self-motivated and have time to spare. Also, if you are trying to make a change to the system or be a leader, IFHS does not actively support you. If you have parents with money and love to throw tantrums, then you will be listened to. If you don't like utter stress, this school isn't a bad one. I've highlighted mostly bad, but this school could be a lot worse and is kinda just a normal high school!

I.F.H.S is awesome! Great teachers and staff! Unfortunately the school itself is fairly dated, and has been neglected by the district and has really been run by parents and faculty trying to keep it’s programs such as clubs and sports running smoothly. It’s a true inner-City school that has a diverse mix of characters. I would certainly recommend Idaho Falls High School.
Although the school facility itself is rather run down, the teacher do a fantastic job with making use of the resources they have! There are many available clubs, well rounded teachers, and the AP department is very strong. IF High School is running high with school spirit and overall made for a great high school option. I've attended courses at two other high schools in the district, and neither one competes with the courses at IF.
