This was a wonderful school district to grow up in. For the most part the teachers were good and the education I received was great. It was a great community, and the schools provided a lot of activities to participate in. For the most part the students there are a good group of kids, there isn't a whole lot of crazy things that happen, that may happen in other schools. I enjoyed my high-school days in that school district. There isn't much I can think of that needs changing.

I enjoyed my time at Prior Lake High School, as well as Twin Oaks Middle School. I especially enjoyed the music program. The directors there, specifically Mr. Schramm and Mr. Melody, were incredible and had such a lasting impact on me. I will forever remember them and am eternally greatful to them for being more than just teachers to me, but incredible role models that I will always hold close to my heart.
Class sizes were rather large, and it consistently made it very hard for me to focus. The more students that are in a class, the harder it becomes for the teacher to provide each kid with the necessary one-on-one time necessary for success. I did however find my time participating in school activities, including studio dance, concert band, pep band, and marching band, wonderful and very beneficial to my enjoyment of my high school career.
