Prospect Mountain High School was a decent school, though it often didn't step beyond it's necessary function. For some, this is ideal. It is a relatively clean and safe environment. Some teachers were better than others, but there was a general feeling of support. There were numerous extracurricular activities available, and students were pushed to join things that they would enjoy. In regards to college selection, there was an evident push for everyone to go to college and preferably to a four-year institution, which doesn't work for everyone. Personalizing that process would be ideal for future generations, to allow people to pursue what truly interests them and to avoid pushing people into a situation they aren't ready for that they then have to pay for.

Prospect Mountain High School is a fun and safe environment. They take their mission statement seriously, every staff member is dedicated to personalize education in order to maximize every student’s success!
I love prospects teachers, they are all amazing and want to see you succeed. There are many options for everyone in the after school clubs, like robotics, outing club, and theater. The education is amazing but I think that high school really holds your hand and lets go at graduation. There are too many teachers who will walk you through everything and make sure you have a perfect grade, which for some people, is too easy and they need a challenge like me.
