I am currently a senior in Blackfoot High School and I can honestly say this school for not adequately prepare it's students for college and the real world. Sure, the teachers are relatable and ready to talk to, but when most of them cannot provide a good education for the community and the future leaders of America, what's the point of being "relatable". I didn't come to high school to make friends with my teachers, I came to recieve a quality education to be successful in life. The current administration lacks drive and ambition. They see blatant problems in the school such as harassment, but yet, they do nothing about it. If you want a quality education and a fair and safe learning environment, go elsewhere. You're wasting your time in Blackfoot.

The best performing arts center auditorium of any high school in the state. Good teachers and a wide variety of great classes. Really good sports! Blackfoot Broncos took state in both soccer and football! Go Broncos! I would choose Blackfoot High over most schools in eastern Idaho. Also, to the person saying that their son was picked on for being black. Blackfoot High has a pretty high percentage of minority students and from what I've seen they are treated pretty good by other students. They aren't picked on based on race. Not a racist school at all.

I absolutely LOVE BHS. I noticed a previous review from a parent stating their child was "mocked for a short time he went here because he is Black." I happen to be a Native American student and people there are always very kind to me. I only know two African-American students attending BHS and everyone treats them with kindness and respect. Teachers there are very generous and willing to teach ONLY if a student is willing to LEARN. I fail to see why people say the teachers are only there for a paycheck. Anywho, thanks to everyone who read this. GO BRONCOS!!!

If you are not mormon and white then for your safety do not attend this school. My child was mocked for the short time he went here because he is Black.

The school board needs to figure out something to make this school better by doing things that interest the students more and make them want to learn more because im a student at Blackfoot High school and i don't feel im wanting to learn here because to me it feels like the teachers don't care about us and they just want a pay check and leave

The teachers here are amazing and I can guarantee from personal experience that no teacher has ever been in any way shape or form a 'profiler' based on RELIGION, sex, or ethnicity. As a four year student preceded by 36 years of family members starting with my dad, going to his younger siblings, my uncle who is two years older than my oldest sister all the way down to me, none of us have ever been discriminated in anyway and have participated in a combined 89 extra curricular activities. BHS DEBATE ROCKS!

Blackfoot High School never gave me an adequate education towards being accepted into college. It is vital and important that if you attend this high school that you continually are aware of courses required for College admitance, because the administration does little to guide you. The actual education I recieved was mediocore, with mostly push you through the system classes in which you memorized for a final and forgot for a lifetime. Of course exceptations arose, but those were rare to the case. It is a very mormon community and this reflects in the student population. I suggest 'endurance' if you choose to attend this school.

I went to BHS for three years and I found it to be the best school I have attended. The teachers do not discriminate against students based on race, religion, or sex. I loved my teachers and my coaches. They connect with students on a personal and professional level, and exellence is encouraged. BHS rules!

I found this schools teacher's more interested in promoting religion that teaching the classes. If your student is not Mormon, The teachers will not be interested in your students needs. My child was often asked ' What ward do you belong to?' When she would answer she did not belong to the Mormon church some of the teachers told her, 'Don't expect to get an A in my class then.' At a Parent/ Teacher conf. I asked one of the Teacher's about this and was told, ' I find non-mormon students don,t do well in my classes. As a result I don't want to get their hopes up of getting a high grade.' This is one of the main reasons we moved away from this town.
