The people at Prospect evoke drastically different feelings-they are either the best people you'll ever meet or the absolute worst. However, the school offers a wide range of extracurricular opportunities and the staff are more than accomodating if you have external conflicts that require assistance. Overall a good school, but could improve on the range of academic opportunities in the future, as the languages and electives are rather limited.

The Prospect Theatre Arts Department is a small family that puts on spectacular productions. The auditorium itself provides new learning opportunities for technicians and actors alike. Mr. M is also an amazing, experienced theatre arts teacher who gives a safe space for expression. However, the current principal doesn’t seem to make an effort to get to know the community of families in Prospect High School, and anti-Semitic tension found in classrooms isn’t getting resolved.
Prospect High School needs to significantly improve its food. Students who rely on the school to provide them with a healthy lunch are disappointed on a daily basis. I often witness students throwing away half-eaten food. Please upgrade your meals, Prospect!
