David Prouty High School Reviews

74 reviews
All Categories
David Prouty High School is a small school where everyone in your class becomes family. With small graduating classes, each classroom course has about 25 or less students which gives to a very intimate learning environment. The teachers all care about their students and develop a relationship with each individual. This is important for students who may feel lost or need direction.
As far as facilities go, the school is older and in rough shape in some spots, but what it lacks in looks, it makes up for in character and personality. The school is regularly being worked on and is in no way neglected.
As for extra curriculars, they are what students put into them. Though it can be hard for groups to find numbers to form teams, they always have a great time, and that's what it's all about. I'd recommend anyone who wants a small school to go here. The individual attention you'll receive as a student is invaluable.

Our school has gone through some difficult times. The current administration has worked over the past few years to improve the quality of our education and the school we attend. They have been focused on increasing our class choices, improving the education we receive and have now focused on building improvements. There is a common goal to focus on the students and the education we receive. If not for their continued focus on the school and improving our education I would not have become the student I am and have the options for continuing my education and achieving my goals.
What I like about my school are the caring teachers and the education and help that they offer their students. Also, the music department is very good. I learned to read music and play an instrument in one semester and I am currently in the school band performing in concerts and parades. My school offers many academic clubs too. Although I do not participate in any sports, I do attend the games which are so much fun to watch.
