It is an honor to be attending PRP HS, I was very nervous about attending but my first day of freshman year, I knew this is where I should be. I felt so welcome, everyone was so kind and helpful! The teachers are absolutely amazing, they are always there for you no matter what. This high school is like a big family, it is an amazing school to attend, there are also a lot of opportunities for each student.

At times not challenging enough, but overall successful experience. Would push for advanced classes for all kids. Beginning a new academy program which may make things much better!
When I first set foot into PRP, it felt like an overwhelming dream come true. Kids in every direction, more voices than ever imagined, and all that you have to work with is your schedule and hope that you find where your class is in time. Every class was innovative and incorporated technology into lessons. On our phones we would use sites to help us learn or do research or class games together. I really felt that the school was the best in JCPS. It was moving forward and developing into a school were tech could make us thrive even more than before. Aside from that, everyday people would rush to the courtyard; we loved to be outside and hang out. Slowly but surely with our new principle they snatched all technology away from us other than school computers, forcing us not to get our phones or anything out in class, or during lunch, and we were also banned from the new courtyard. I'm sad to say that I will be happy to graduate from here, it feels more like a prison than a school now.
