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!

What is so great about this school is the spirit and pride. This school has so much pride. We do spirit weeks and compete for the spirit stick at every assembly. The school is really fun too and has so much diversity and history as well. We get pretty loud during assembly's, games, competitions, etc. My favorite competition has always been the teacher and staff dance battling in front of the entire school. There are stories being passed down from generation to generation at Poky, and the school has pictures of graduating classes dated back to the 20th century. All the students are really unique so the school is pretty diverse. The teachers are pretty nice. They love having open discussions and try to understand everyone. Every year teachers and Seniors are out in the hallway helping out Freshmen on the first day of school. I like it because it's so welcoming. There is only one thing I would change and that is the schedule for Finals day because literally no one likes it.
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.
