I would like to see the teachers at Prescott High School, teach students because they know the value of learning. Not just give them an assignment and call it a day. I would like to have better funding, as 49th in the country for funding we don't have any money really, and when we do it is used on things the school doesn't benefit from. Like the money we wasted on tv's in the lobby, that are literally just slideshows of nature, it is insane to me how badly our administration handles the money. Not to mention the administration is involved in all of the athletes personal lives, athletes are constantly being punished for underage drinking, while the rest of the kids who are at the parties aren't even talked too. There is a lot wring with Prescott High School, but these are just some of the main points.

My experience with Prescott High School has been very up and down. While most of the teachers are very nice people with good intentions, a few of them do not seem to care about whether or not their students thrive. The best part of Prescott High School are the teachers, they all have a small town mentality and want to be connected with their students. The biggest problem I observed is that there seems to be a disconnect between the teachers and administration. Teachers tend to disagree with almost all new policies and rules that administration puts in place.
Prescott High School is great for meeting new people and you learn a lot. I have been attending this high school for three years now and I love it! The only thing I would say needs a change is the diversity, there are many minorities. Another issue that also needs a look into is the faculty, staff needs to be at their best when running a school full of hundreds of students and right now not all staff is at their best.
