I am so excited about the possibility of moving next summer!!! My husband has a job opportunity and I can't wait! I am originally from northwest MT and have been living in southern ill for 15 years....too hot and humid and NO SKIING!!!! We visited IF during the blue angel weekend (awesome show) and toured the area...grand targhee and area and LOVE IT!!!! I have two boys one will be graduating this year and I hope he will move with us and another will be a junior by the time we move. We drove by the HS and he liked hillcrest cause of the tennis courts. He plays soccer, tennis and plays in the band and is a great student. He is hesitant about moving (loves the idea of a ski resort being soooo close) but is open to the idea. I would like to find out more information about the schools (we come from a HS size of about 600). Are there marching bands? He is also interested in the civil air patrol. I want to give my son the most information I can about IF to make the transistion easier for him...I am already sold. Especially after sitting in the hot sun all day during the air show on the concrete and not even breaking a sweat...it was AWESOME!! We attend a church of christ and I know there is only one small one there, and I know the preference is predominately LDS. Just curious if there are any outside youth groups other than school or church? I have been a special needs aide for early childhood for 10 years and wonder what the job opportunities look like in the area?

Housing prices are unbelievable! I thought they would be sky high because of the area but am very suprised....it's doable!!! What neighboorhood suggestions do you have? I would love to live on that little hill overlooking the town and my husband would love to be in country...I personally am tired of living in the country. He will be working on the west side of town and did not get a chance to see that area. Shopping looks great!!! But I will have to stay away from Chuck o rama! Apple gym looks awesome, but didn't get to talk to anyone about membership fees...probably enourmous by the looks of the place!

Ok nuff said.......oh...I am an avid gardener...not so much food..but FLOWERS! Someone tell me about gardening!! I have a long growing season here and I know it will be a lot different. I will definately be getting a greenhouse!!!!

Ok now nuff said...I welcome any input good or bad about everything IF!! Most info about schools clicks, sports, teachers, etc. I gotta sell my kids!!!!

Thanks and c u next summer!!!

Glad you're looking forward to moving back to the region

Hillcrest is a great school, I have a niece and nephew there right now and they actually like it. I'm including the website for the high school, that would be the best way to check into band. Sadly with the schools' budget cuts many things got eliminated and I'm not certain of everything. Hillcrest High

Aside from high school teams Idaho Falls does have soccer Idaho Falls Soccer

Your son might be interested in joining the ski club as well, another way to find friends. Idaho Falls Ski Club Home Page

As for Apple, I know the owners and they are quite awesome people Their fees are actually quite competitive and if you saw the entire facility then you know what you'll be getting Apple Athletic Club - Idaho Falls, Idaho They membership fees are not listed on the website, you'll have to contact them.

If you go to District 93's website it will give you a link to the boundaries for the high schools to give you a better idea where you want to house hunt.
