School Reviews

Bonners Ferry High School has a strong tradition, but recently has undergone many staff and leadership changes that have left the school in a state of flux. This school is greatly benefitted by small town values, many staff members are prominent in the community, and school events are also community events. Academically, the school enjoys many young teachers, which makes for dynamical classes yet suffers from a high turnover rate. Athletically, only a few programs (soccer wrestling baseball) consistently compete at the state level, but Bonners Ferry does have a reputation for bringing strong crowds to away games.
