I'm currently in my Freshman year with four more days left of school, and over the course of this school year, I attended three different high schools. Out of the three, Pocatello High School has been the best! The teachers truly care about all of their students and their academics. The other students are friendly, and the school offers so many different extracurricular activities for everyone! I've had a great and supportive group of friends and my teachers have helped me tremendously with my grades. It's really an amazing school!

The teachers at this school are absolutely incredible! You can tell they care deeply about not only the education, but also the happiness of their students. Many teachers at Poky High are always completely open to suggestions or improvements that can be made to assignments, or the class in general. Another aspect that is loved at this school is the staff's effort to get more students involved in extracurricular activities. All in all, this is an exemplary learning environment and few students regret their decision of attending Poky.
The teachers are amazing, the classes are worth the time and effort, and the counselors are always very nice and willing to help! The food isn't that great, but if you have the money you can go eat at restaurants near the school instead, so you don't have to eat the school food. There is a wonderful diversity among the students, and it's really easy to make good friends. After having been to three other High schools, I believe Pocatello High School to be the best of them all!
