A high school experience is what one makes of it. Here at PHS, the students have it off better than they think. Our staff is not very consistent, but the ones who do stay become friends and mentors for life. The academics are based on how dedicated a student is to the school and how motivated students are to their grades. This is obvious, but sometimes with the lack of good teachers, students have to teach themselves many lessons. Our sports were much better in the past, but the pep of the senior class brings even the worse losses to life. It is all about the attitude.

Prophetstown High School is an average school with average academics. In most cases, I would say the majority of students are below average on knowledge and grades. There is a constant rotation of new teachers so don't plan on getting to know any of them. None of the teachers are interested in your lives or your plans after high school. For the most part, nobody cares what you do after you leave there. It's a predominantly white, lower class school. Low on funding, decent lunches, not too many programs, considering defunding more programs, and considering making a full time co-op with Erie High School. This school's status is not going up any time soon.
If I had to do high school all over again, I would definitely choose Prophetstown High School again! The school is located in a little country town in the midwest. Everybody knows everybody and you can always be confident that there is a helping hand nearby if you need it. There is so many genuine people at PHS and I wouldn't want to spend my high school career anywhere else!
