The story of Pocatello High School.

Pocatello High School can be found in Pocatello, Idaho. The school dates back to the early 1900’s even though it did burn completely to the ground in 1914. The school was rebuilt at the exact same location. In 1939, additions were made to the school including a new gymnasium and more buildings in recent years. Even with all the renovations, the school still has a unique 1916 feel about it.

Not only is the high school one of the oldest buildings still in existence, but it has ghost of the past that are not willing to leave.

Sometime between the 1930’s and the 1950’s two best friends, girls, made a suicide pact. No one knows the reason or reasons these girls decided to end their life, however, one of the girls hung herself from her own locker while the other girl was too afraid to stick to her end of the pact. Many people would smell the perfume of the dead girl as they passed by the locker so strong the school finally threw out her locker. However, this did not help release the girl’s spirit. The custodial staff has seen her walking the halls and at times, her perfume still lingers in the air.

Science class had a visitor that could not be explained away by reasonable occurrences. At one time, the class used a real skeleton to learn about the bones of the human body. However, the school switched to plastic bones and packed away the real bones. This upset one ghost that would place the real skeleton in the cabinets and other places around the room.

Many people passing by the school have seen faces peering out at them from the library windows and some of back windows.

A visit to the Pocatello High School during the evening hours will give you a special treat as unseen hands will play a concert on the piano in the auditorium.
