Blackfoot High School is a four-year public secondary school in Blackfoot, Idaho,[1] the only traditional high school in the Blackfoot School District #55 in south central Bingham County.[4]

History[edit]

Founded in the early 1890s,[5] the current BHS building was built in the 1950s. It was given a new science wing in the mid-1990s and in the early 2000s, a new auditorium and gymnasium.[citation needed] The school, sitting adjacent to Stoddard Elementary, has full athletic grounds and a fine arts wing.[citation needed]

In July 2012, Blackfoot High School announced it would offer Shoshoni language classes.[6]

Athletics[edit]

Blackfoot competes in athletics in IHSAA Class 4A, the second-highest classification in the state. It is a member of the High Country Conference (4A) with Rigby and Bonneville. The 2012 football team successfully defended its 4A state title, the Broncos' third in four years.
