Highland is like a private school. There are no private high schools in town so if you want that feel...great academics, superior athletics, parent involvement. Guess what...its free!! Sure people may say that it is cliquey here. There may be some privileged kids...but there is also a VERY diverse population found in the hallways. We have emos, goths, skaters, stoners,jocks, dorks, brains, Hispanic, Pacific Islanders, American Indians, beautiful mixes of every shape size and color!!! In Poky we have 3 high schools and all are exceptional as we have ISU here. I moved here from Calif because of the schools and needing to raise 5 kids somewhere decent. Our schools have about every foreign language you can imagine available whereas w public schools in Cali you get Spanish offered and MAYBE French I. Be happy and stop complaining. You are getting an education people have to pay $15,000 a year for elsewhere.

Highland is the stereotypical rich kid school where everything is bought instead of earned. Except for the straight A student part, they earned that poor rating all on their own merit.

Just don't like the feeling of the place. Bad teachers, student body, and facility. Try another high school.

I teach there and it is a great school with great faculty, staff and students. The student body does many service projects for the community and cares for one another.

This high school's administration has moderate to bad communications with parents. For the most part, they don't return phone calls for several days or even at all. Very cliqish atmosphere among majority of students .

Well, I'm not a parent!! I'm a student at Highland High School and I must say I am very disappointed in the learning environment is less than perfect!! True, I am only a freshman but, I am not pleased with the school and my mother would agree. She also, does not approve of the environment of the school.

well, I'm not exactly a parent, but I WAS an international exchange student at HHS in 1998/99, and graduated after my attending school there for a year. I honestly have to say, learning at HHS has been a very pleasant and informative experience, and I went to this school with all the pride and confidence any student should feel with his school. I could always ask for help and support from both the school office and my guidance counsellor, and I had the chance to take part in many (almost too many) extracurricular activities, such as choir tours, a musical, a 'men's choir' (which was definitively a lot of fun), various clubs and meetings - among others a very open and comforting 'international club' - and much more. I can recommend this school to any student or their parents, if you are looking for a good education paired with a multitude of extracurricular activities, many great sports (a very good football team, just to name one) and a very friendly atmosphere.

Highland is a great high school especially for extracurricular activities, I was involved in clubs and the teacher advisors were helpful. I had a special interest in art and I was allowed to explore that interest to my fullest. The art room was available to me almost anytime and the teacher was always extremely helpful. Highland is probably the best high school in Pocatello.
