It's obvious as a current student of WSU that Pullman High School is an above average school. However, there were a lot of problems when I left the school and many have not gone unresolved. The English program is lacking while the math and science courses are generally excellent. History is taught at a satisfactory level, but could be improved. The school does not provide much support for the arts and it felt like, as a student, more focus was given to the athletic program. There are no courses worth mentioning on economics, psychology, sociology or business. The only communication course is a multi-media class, which is done fairly well. However, communication is not an emphasis at this school. Finally, there is a good variety of extra curricular programs that enjoy generally good support.

As a student in Pullman High School I can say that I enjoy going to school every morning. I am a senior this year and I am sad to have to leave the school and teachers for college. The teachers are all very helpful and willing to help any student in need, even if they've never had them before. The FFA program ran by Tina DaVault and Jessica Moore is one of the best programs I've ever been involved with. They are both wonderful teachers and advisors who spend countless hours at the school helping any student in need. The atmosphere in the school is wonderful and all the students tend to get along quite well.

Pullman High school does a fanatastic job integrating all of the students in the community, from home-schooling students, special needs students, to accelerated students. Thanks to a great deal of community involvement our students are offered terrific opportunities to accel.

I went to this school about 4 years ago. Decent school. It was a terrible environment to learn because it was a school designed by a man who designed prisons for a living. All concrete walls and very cold. I was new as a sophomore and wasn't very welcomed. They DONT have a dress code which bothered me alot. Relatively small school but a lot of cliques. Teachers didn't offer any one on one that I got from my last school and their way of scheduling was way off. We had A days and B days.. and being the procrastinator I am it didn't work out. They allowed certain students to do things they wouldnt allow me. Such as transfer classes. That now show up on my transcripts as I.

I couldn't be more pleased with the school; the vocational program is excellent, and Tina DaVault runs one of the best FFA chapters in the state. I passed all the WASLs with no problems. The school is very diverse, with WSU in town. The only problem is it's a pretty big school in a pretty big town, which offers a lot of temptation for high school kids.

After moving here from out of state, I have been very disappointed. The teachers/staff are so busy telling everyone how exceptional they are here academically that they leave the personal care and concern for the kids behind. The quality of the academics is excellent, it's just too bad they can't care about their students. They do not go out of their way to welcome new people to the community which is a side effect of being a small town.

This is a relatively small school in a university town that is smack dab in the middle of miles and miles of wheat and cornfields. Pullman is small enough that teachers are bound to run into their students pretty frequently. Pullman High School has quite a few dedicated teachers, and the school can afford to be very picky about who they hire, as the jobs are in high demand. Not incredibly diverse (it's practically in Idaho), but parents tend to be very involved in their students' education, and the college prep courses are fairly rigorous. The school has limited AP (none?), and doesn't fund enough vocational ed (IMHO). Major strengths-- caring community and teachers Major weaknesses-- middle of nowhere, not enough diversity.

This is an academic community- and the quality of teaching and curriculum is outstanding here-- I have four children who were in Pullman schools-- I found out after transferring to another district where we were really disappointed with their standards compared to Pullman.
