Pullman High School Reviews
The town has a major university and a large engineering company, so a lot of the kids will already be education-minded thanks to their parents. This boosts the district's academic scores regardless of the quality of the education. But the district is relatively poor and it shows at the high school. For example there are science classes with textbooks decades old, and they don't have enough books for every student, so students only get to read the textbooks in class by sharing them. There are technology challenges with computers and WiFi. Some instructors seem not particularly knowledgeable in or interested in their fields. It's a little shocking for a college town actually.
I really enjoyed going to Pullman High. Many great teachers are ready to help you learn and further your education and readiness for your future. There was never a day where I felt unsafe, and I knew our administrative staff was always looking out for us students. A great place to go to school!
Pullman, WA, is the home of Washington State University. Being a small college town, the culture is highly geared towards academics. Our school offers sports, high-rigor classes, and several extracurricular activities. We even have the option of taking certain classes at the University once we hit junior year. Personally, I think we lack a strong school culture, and diversity, which is not the fault of the administration - Pullman is 83% Caucasian, 11% Asian, and 2% Black. It shows in the schools. Our school is about 75% White and 25% Non-White. It's noticeable when you walk down the halls. Other than that, PHS is a great school that provides students several opportunities to grow.
