  • Recommended August 25, 2010 - Coming into the public school arena after 9 years of private school, I was worried about what to expect for my son when he started at Mt Spokane High School. Any fears I may have had were quickly set to rest. The academic programs they have are wonderful, allowing a wide range of classes for the differing needs of their students. My son has learned much in his classes, and was able to find classes that were a good fit for his style of learning. The staff has proven to be caring and involved. The sports program has been good, and I hear from others this is the same for music and art. As far as concern of staff in scary situations like the other poster claimed, my experience has been the opposite. I have witnessed first hand the handling of problem students at the school, and I can tell you that the staff does not take these situations lightly, and work hard within their abilities to make sure that problem students are not allowed to stay in the school. While I am sorry for the experiences that the previous posted listed, I would hate to think that anyone would think that is the norm at Mt Spokane High School. I believe Mt Spokane to be an excellent school. If I did not, I would still be enrolling my son in a private school. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 18, 2010 - Going to Mt. Spokane were the worst 4 years of my life. I was harrassed so much by my ex-boyfriend that I got a restraining order and moved to a different school and they still did nothing. I hope no one ever has to go through what I went through. Really think about sending your children here- I would not recommend them to ANYONE! - Posted by Student/Alumni
