I moved to Prospect Ridge my senior year and it was the best academic decision I have made so far. They really prepare you for college and help you in the application processes. The teachers willing spend their time to help you properly learn and teach you how to think critically. Overall, it’s a great school and I’m proud to be a miner!

Prospect Ridge Academy is a college prep school. For me this has seemed to not take effect until senior year for me. Some teachers are great and always will to help you, on the other hand there are some teachers that are the complete opposite. This is the 5th year of the high school being open which does cause it to have poor school culture and the facilities are not yet complete. I believe that as the school ages the culture will improve as well as the facilities. The administration at this school is currently not the best fit for this school. Prospect Ridge Academy has potential to be a great school but is not quite there yet.
I liked my experience here at Prospect Ridge Academy because it is unique and different than what other schools offer. Being a college preparatory school, I feel challenged in a good way to try my best. This prepares me for the future and to be successful. Apart from the academics, the environment of the school is very positive and the friendships and connections in the student life are strong. Everyone is supportive to one another and it's here that you will find friends that care about you and will work together. One thing that needs to change and is in the middle of changing is the size of the school. The school is developing and growing and is adding new facilities (a new gym for example) which the community is looking forward to because the school needs it.
