I have had a wonderful experience throughout my fours years at Mt. Spokane High School. The staff all show that they genuinely care about their students both in and out of school. I am also the class of 2020 and the teachers worked very hard to switch to an online learning environment. Additionally, my principal has done all he possibly can to celebrate my class as our traditional graduation was cancelled. Overall, I am extremely grateful for all I have been taught and I have memories that will last me a lifetime!

Mt. Spokane was a great high school, I think their academics were really great and for the most part the teachers were about the students and their learning. The principal was by far the best, and so were the student counselors. I don’t think I would have attended college if it weren’t for Josh Cowart who became the student rep for colleges and the person who helped everyone out and got them to where they are now. Huge thanks to him and Mr. Nelson!
I loved the community! I changed schools my sophomore year and that really impacted me. I was so scared and anxious about meeting new people and making new friends, but in the end it was all worth it. I was welcomed and people we friendly, I played sports and tried pottery all the while the people that I meet along the way made high school so much better. The staff here was amazing too! They pushed me to new levels and taught me so much. I loved my three years here and wouldn't trade it for anything!
