Prescott High School Reviews
Prescott High School does a pretty good job preparing their students for college. Academics could serve to be a little better, but with the funding that our school has (we definitely are not a rich school), the teachers do a pretty good job. I was involved in many band programs during my time at Prescott High School and during my time in these programs we did not see a lot of funding from our school for said programs. Our "Band Boosters", which were made up of parents from the kids involved in the band programs (especially marching band), did a majority of our funding; many car washes, rummage sales, dinner parties, and more were set up to raise money for the program and the students. More help towards funding for the performing arts programs (band, choir, drama, etc.) from the school would be the main thing that I think Prescott High School could improve on. There are problems with vandalism and juuling in our school bathrooms, but unfortunately, I think that is just becoming common.
I began to attend Prescott High School near the end of freshman year. I had a difficult time at first making friends and relating to teachers, it wasn't until my sophomore year when I began connecting with people a lot more. My teachers were very hard working, trying new things every day to keep students involved and participating. The overall feel for the school was very uplifting, motivational quotes in the hallway, regular assemblies, and a caring staff. School sports were a big pride at PHS, especially football. With Prescott being such a small town, it was nice to have a descent school where you met and connected with a lot of people. School dances were always a big deal, always prepped with good food, lights and music. I just so happened to meet my wife at one of these dances. I loved PHS and the experience it gave me to go out into the world and face the challenges.
My favorite part of Prescott High School was the band program. There were many opportunities available to us that were not available to other programs. Also, the band instructors new there stuff. Aside from that there wasn't much to offer. The honors classes aren't very challenging and the teachers don't know what they are teaching very well. Furthermore, some of felt the need to insist that they were right and the students were wrong using strong verbal force. I would like to see more educated teachers employed and have the teachers treat the students a little better.
