HistoryEdit

Founded in the early 1890s,[6] 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.[7]
