Over all teachers really care about the the individual success of students. The experience is really what one puts themselves into, the school offers lots of activities, sports, clubs and events that they encourage students to enjoy. The administration has made it possible for students to even create their own clubs if what they enjoy is not available at the school. The school has a program for entering freshmen to has a pare of upper clansman buddies with in a group of freshmen. The whole school year and get notes weekly from the juniors and seniors that inform them about actives and encourages them, they even go out on outings with the group each semester or more.

My experience at Post Falls High School was an average educational experience. I met many teachers who profoundly cared about me and my success, as well as teachers who did the minimum work, and did not take much of an interest in me. I am grateful for my experience at this school, especially for the drama department. I have met my best friends and a family through the theater program. Although the theater program has not always been a priority for the school, and other activities seem to be more important to this school, I will always cherish the memories I made through participating in the drama department at my high school.
One of the most welcome changes from Middle school to High school was the fact that Lunch was less controlled. Seniors even have open campus. They also have a good variety of clubs for the size of the city it serves. For example, I'm in International club, JAM (Japanese anime manga) Club, and Trojan Needlework Club. The biggest issue is the lack of enforcement of assembly behavior outside of everyone needing to be in their seats. As a result, there is a huge problem of non-Freshmen booing Freshmen to the point of drowning out any cheers. Overall, this is a good high school for a mid-size town in North Idaho.
