Sun Prairie Area School District Reviews

11 reviews
All Categories
The teachers are great an really care a lot about the kids. But the school communication is poor - confusing and lots of errors. Also, the district at the elementary schools is way too focused on test scores. They should spend more time helping the kids learn to be good people, respect each other, play and grow their imagination. When they someday work, employers will want creative, innovative ideas. Without unstructured play, the kids will never have the practice of thinking of new ideas.
Review Sun Prairie Area School District
I had a great experience at Sun Prairie High School. The teachers are great, the students are welcoming, and it's also very diverse. I would definitely recommend this school!
Overall I've enjoyed my time at SPHS so far. Not only are there a large variety of sports and clubs, but a lot of people are motivated to be a part of the community. The facilities are amazing, whether it's our huge theatre or sport fields and gyms. The only negative I have are a few teachers, but that comes down to personal opinion.
