Upcoming Events

About CHS:


    Coeur d'Alene High School continues to create a positive, caring and safe learning community that establishes a sense of ownership shared by all stakeholders.  We value and hold ourselves accountable for positive and enthusiastic behaviors and attitudes each day.

    Our administrative team is here to serve you this year. Mike Lindquist (former Principal at Venture High School) is currently Acting Principal/ Activities Director. Libby Keyes and Mike Randles continue as Assistant Principals.

    The ultimate goal at Coeur d'Alene High School is to provide the highest quality education to our students.  We will aim for learners to reach their full potential academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. Instruction will be purposeful; it will differentiate to meet the needs of all students; regular feedback will be given to all participants.

    The single most important priority of Coeur d'Alene High School is our students. The school community works cooperatively together for the greater good of everyone involved. 

    Even though it is still summer, we are excited to get the year started.  We have already begun discussing our goals for the upcoming school year.  Two of the goals we are adamant about are:

    1. Relationships.  We are committed to building strong Viking relationships with our students, families, and our community.

    2. Communication.  Our team believes open communication is vital to having healthy relationships.  We welcome you to contact us at any time to discuss your needs and/or concerns.  In addition, we will be sending out brief emails on a regular basis to let you know of upcoming events and to recognize groups and individuals.

    We invite all students, grades 9th through 12th, to join us for our Back to School Open House / Meet & Greet on Tuesday, August 29th from 6 pm – 7:30 pm.
