Prentiss High school was an amazing school I loved everything about it. From the teachers down to the sports everything was great. I was in the band from 6-12 grade I played the flute, twirled flag and danced it was amazing. Sadly I can’t change anything because my school is now combined with our rival school. The rival football games were the best it was always great to see Prentiss VS Bassfield.

I loved Prentiss High School's atmosphere of family and love. One thing I would love to see change is the amount of resources provided to our children. I feel as if there are not even efficient resources to prepare the students.
The parents are okay but lacking in some areas.
