"Our programs are self-sustaining so this money that comes in really helps increase participation and opportunities for kids." - Brad Wallace, Highland High's Principal

Highland High School - Opened in 1963, Highland was the second of the three traditional public high schools in Pocatello, and serves the northern portion of the school district, including portions of Pocatello, Chubbuck, and Tyhee. It was originally going to be called Gate City, one of Pocatello's historical nicknames. Students voiced their dislike for the name and a vote was held, and the winning name was Highland.

Century High School - is a four-year public secondary school in Pocatello, Idaho. Opened in 1999, it serves the southeast portion of the Pocatello/Chubbuck School District #25, and is the newest of the district's three traditional high schools.

Pocatello High School - The school was constructed in late spring and summer of 1892, even before the official founding of the township, costing $18, 281. According to the Bannock County Historical Society, the school was originally called West Side School, holding all grades in the same school. Pocatello High School was the most impressive building in the area during the early 1900s and on many occasions the school served as a town square where concerts and athletic contests were held. Two presidents of the United States spoke on the grounds of Pocatello High School, President Theodore Roosevelt in 1902 and William Howard Taft in 1908. In 1914, a fire started in the boiler room and the high school burnt completely to the ground. The school was rebuilt in exactly the same location. In 1939, the old school was remodeled and additions were made including a new gymnasium currently known as the pit. In 1996 major renovations were added to the school which took three years to complete. These renovations included new floors, lights, sidewalks, heating system, and windows. A new gymnasium known as the palace was built between 2004 and 2006.
