Post Falls High School Reviews

Post Falls cares about money, graduations rates, and passing tests, not the student when it counts. There are some amazing teachers here who actually care about your well being but there are far too many who should be in your corner instead of kicking you when you're down. They don't enforce their "no bullying" rules very well. Also, if you're not in athletics then it's like you don't exsist. This school has lost sight of what really matters. I've found my strengths and how to stand on my own and it certainly wasn't with PFHS, they have claimed all of my success and the money for me this year, though they decided not to let me be a part of the graduating class. I've had four years of them handling things very poorly.

My experience at Post Falls High School was very positive! I had teachers who were intentional about our education, yet always looking for ways to improve personal life. I was enrolled in extracurricular clubs and activities while getting a quality education.
All of the teachers take the time to get to know the student, and most teachers are not afraid to talk to students that they themselves do not have in class. It makes for a lovely day when teachers greet you as you go down the hallways, and they are always available for anything from a laugh to questions on the day's assignment. Sometimes the grading systems are not consistent, and teachers have been known to change styles halfway through the year for no apparent reason...but they usually explain how the new system works!
