Sun Prairie is an average school overall. Sun Praire has its benefits where it needs and its disadvantages and bad qualities like all schools. Some of the benefits to the school are it has a lot of different choices of classes for students to take. You can take forensics, genetics, and psychology. A lot of other schools around sun prairie do not have that. Also, these classes like forensics, genetics, psychology can also help you get to know what you want to do later on in life. Also, academically sun prairie offers challenging classes. They have ap classes. These can give advanced and high achieving students a chance to change themselves and get a college credit. The bad and not so good stuff about sun prairie. There no no diversity. Mostly all teachers and students are white and if you are in class you might be the only non-white person in the class. So, if you are a race of anything else then white you might find it hard making sun prairie home and finding a place where you fit.

Sun Prairie High School awaits the most friendliest of teachers and staff. They are 24/7 ready to help students with their homework, projects and even personal life. If one cracks a joke, the teacher adds on to it and is a part of the student community rather that the adult community.
Although the food may not be the greatest, it is no reason not to dislike the school because Sun Prairie makes for this by providing students with an awesome environment and a giant building.
Sun prairie is also rich in its diversity. This school doesn't just have a single culture but is a culture of cultures.

This adds to the students of sun prairie knowing more about the outside world and helps become more aware.
Overall, the people are friendly and a ton of clubs await students to join them with no strings attached.
