I've been going to PV for three years and this will be my last year here. The AP programs are really great, you get to learn new things everyday. There is a lack of school spirit and tradition. Overall, if you are focused on academics, sports, and clubs PV is just a blast!

Prarie View High School is a nice school in general. There are many opportunities for students to take advanced classes such as Honor, AP, and College courses. The vast majority of the teachers whom I have had are very flexible in helping students manage their workloads, which was very beneficial for students like myself who take many advanced classes. However, the student climate is rather concerning as there is little to no school spirit and there seem to be behavioral issues with the underclassmen as of right now. Otherwise, the school has vending machines, free parking, breakfast, open weight-rooms and more.
Prairie View was extremely laid back. I did not have many rules or high expectations. This was super cool when I was a freshman and sophomore, but as I got into our junior and senior years, I started to notice how that negatively effected my fellow classmates. People were failing and dropping out because they were drowning in a poor GPA. To me, Prairie View was easy. I was able to maintain an average GPA of 3.7 all four years. Playing basketball and soccer for Prairie View also forced me to maintain excellent grades because I wanted to be a starter and captain. The soccer program at Prairie View is the best athletic program. I have now been captain two years (junior and senior year) and have helped led my team to an undefeated season in 2017, and so far a 10-1-1 2018 season. Soccer is my passion and was my favorite part of high school, and is a main reason that I am playing soccer in college.
