Prosper Independent School District Reviews
Prosper is a wealthy district with many readily available resources that are used wisely, but they fall short in their ability to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels they belong. This is due in part to their exponentially growing population, with over 3,000 students at the high school alone. They also have an almost comically large focus on athletics and drastically less (though still sufficient) attention on other extracurricular areas. I've found this focus to lead those not involved in sports to occasionally feel less important. Over all, though, the education one receives through Prosper is well-rounded and well taught.
Prosper is a pretty tough school district when it comes to both academics and sports, and they also don’t take safety lightly. The only real problems I have with the school are the admin and the counselors. The teachers are pretty laid back, but they still care enough to push you, whereas the administration seems to only care excessively about the schools reputation. The students are almost completely overlooked, but I don’t blame the school for being that way either. There are a lot of students in Prosper who are obnoxious and disrespectful, so the administration’s strict attitudes and lack of empathy is understandable.
Prosper is a very wealthy area that is rapidly changing from a small, rural town into a blossoming city, similar to neighboring Frisco. Having grown up in Prosper, I can attest to its wonderful location. Being just far enough away from the larger cities but close enough to visit with little to no hassle. The schools are very high quality, albeit known to struggle with some poor administration. Since a large majority of the residents are quite wealthy, it has a much different atmosphere than almost any other small town, which, in my opinion, creates a sort-of 'best of both worlds' scenario. The people care about the town and it shows.
