Prairie Heights Senior High School Reviews

I enjoyed Prairie Heights Senior High School for the most part. I was active in sports and clubs throughout my four years at the school. The school is very good at offering a variety of clubs and organizations. I found that if a student had an idea, there was at least one teacher or mentor open to the idea and supported the idea. The school's employees were very interactive whether it was during the pep rallies, the filming of the lib dub, or during regular school activities. I found comfort in talking to some teachers as they were very caring and trustworthy. All of the staff wanted their students to succeed and usually did everything they could to get them to do so.

The administration tends to focus on unimportant aspects rather than education, doesn't care for teachers enough, won't take care of bullying, and is very poor. However, you won't find teachers who care more for their students than the teachers at Prairie Heights.
Prairie Heights is a relatively small school in LaGrange, Indiana. Its size allows the faculty and the students to develop closer relationships to each other, which creates a strong sense of camaraderie.
