When I came to Prospect High is was an alright school, the class selection was good and the school environment is also fun and a lot of positive energy. Over the years however I've seen the school change for the better and see more classes provided and the staff really pushing students for college readiness. As much as I complain about all the requirements the school sets up, I'm glad we have then since it really helps a lot of students become eligible for college. Most of the staff members really do care for their students and really do show that they want to best for us. A lot of the classes really do challenge students but in a good way and really pushes students for their best.

My experience at Prospect High School has been very memorable. The administration is wonderful, personally I thought the science teachers were excellent and were very knowledgeable on what they were teaching. The math department could use some improvement. I was involved in sports (swimming) and has a great experience. The team truly felt like a family. What I like most about Prospect is how diverse it is. There are people from many different places and backgrounds. We also had many fun social events, some that were unique just to Prospect, such as morning roar and color chaos. The school is also currently having a lot of construction and remodeling, so the campus will soon be upgraded and with more buildings and resources.
Prospect has been a comfortable, safe, forward-thinking, inclusive environment for the students. Even through some administrative change-ups, the benefits outweigh the downfalls and the positive attitude is apparent in the role models on staff and in volunteers. The facility has improved, though the construction takes a while, the environment is kept safe.
