Very disappointed! My child was enrolled at Century and following a sporting event I read some facebook posts made by some students at CHS. The students at this school were vile and ranted and raved about things that nobody should every be proud of. Needless to say, my child transferred days later.

Pretty good school. Nice facility and great teachers. My only problem is that the school is built on a hill like a prison complex near the freeway. No way out! All joking aside though. It's a great school.

Century is overall the best school in Pocatello and lots of room to keep growing. We have the best academics, as compared to Highland and Poky. Our sports aren't that great though.

Basically this place has the best building in the world. There are nice teachers, programs, and students. Everyone is involved. Plus their band is one of the best in the state!

We have had children or grandchildren attend all three High Schools, all of the Middle Schools and several of the elementary schools in Pocatello as well as we have lived in several other states over the years. Century High School is far and above the finest school we have been associated with. Leadership is excellent, sports is no different here than anywhere else as far as the politics go. One area I think needs improvement is parent support, Diamondbackers booster club participation is terrible, we need to do better for the sake of the exceptional students that attend CHS. Main area of concern is the school budget, it is sad to have such a fine school and not have it fully staffed and funded! Go Diamondbacks!

Century High School offers a generally adequate level of teachers. Most seem to be there for the benefit of the children as opposed to the paycheck. Sports programs are questionable, with coaching staffs that are degrading and intimidating, not only to the athletes but also to the parents. Promises are made and never kept. Good athletes are driven away from sports they excel in by coaching staffs interested only in the win as opposed to the enhancement of the skills. Questions from parents result in the athlete being threatened as to remaining on the team.

Cetury High has been one of the best high school in south east Idaho, but sadly it is slowy starting to change. My son went there for the past three years, and enjoyed it. He said that the admistration there was superior to the other high school in town, because they made you fell like they care. They made me believe it too. But hopefully the school will stop changing and the students start making a difrence and stop the cliques, lead the freshmen to respect the school and save it. The administation can [not] do it by themselves.

Century has the highest level of fairness and teacher involvment I have witnessed. The administration of CHS is excellent!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and language usage, and in grades 5, 7 and 10 in science. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
