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.
This school district has an emphasis on community and the interactions. There are many great opportunities at this school, but, similar to the real world, you have to actively apply/search for them instead of waiting for them to come to you. Academically, I believe that this school is above average. The teachers I had at this school are one of the best ones I have had during my school life. The teachers expect a lot, but at the end of the day their methods help you for the finals and AP exams. Personally, I have not experienced or witnessed any sort of outward racial tension. However, that does not indicate that there are no cultural bubbles. There are many diverse friend groups and interactions, however the student body still drifts toward their own race. The school sprit has decreased over the years, so many people don't attend a lot of the school events, except for the football games.
