Prescott High School Reviews
My experience at Prescott High School so far has been very enjoyable. I have found that when you are placed in the advanced classes you will end up working with other intelligent people. The downside to Prescott High School is that the overall education is tailored to the student who does not care about their work, or does not have any plans for the future. Once you find yourself outside of that group the activities and academics at the school will be quite satisfactory.
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.
