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 High School has very many good teachers. I haven't had a teacher that I didn't like. The counselors are great too. They are always willing to help, and make sure that you are doing everything you need to do in order to graduate. The staff is amazing as well, they also try very hard to make sure things are getting done. The students all love each other and everyone has a great time. During assemblies the classes as a whole come together and you can just see the school pride in everyone. This school is amazing and no one every feels left out.
