Prospect Ridge Academy Reviews
I love Prospect Ridge Academy! It has great teachers and academics; the staff is able to create a personal relationship with the students.
Academics are challenging and as a relatively new school, they are growing in creating a community in activities they offer. The counselling department is still not quite as involved with all students and some students tend to get pushed aside and not get the help especially regarding college planning because they are not "drama" kids who are in the office every other day.
I love Prospect Ridge Academy, not only for their academics but for their staff. They are a collage based school and push you to your highest point. The teachers are always willing to help anybody out, and the seem like they actually enjoy coming to school everyday. If I could change one thing about the school, I would like to see more of an option for electives to take.
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.
Prospect Ridge Academy has a good college prep curriculum and excellent teachers, but the administration and its concern for students' safety leaves much to be desired.
I love how the school is college-prep based. The counselors and teachers do a lot to help students with their applications to colleges.
The academics are very strong and it is really preparing students for college. All of the classes have very high standards and push students to better themselves. The school is newer and developing which is fun to see in a student point of view. I would change the dress code though to be less strict.
Prospect Ridge Academy is a great, but challenging school. It is math and science-based which I like because that is related to what I want to go into. I believe that the math department could improve because some of the math teachers aren't great
The teachers are very qualified and focus on individual achievement. The school is perfect for students who are willing to take responsibility for their own education. As a newer school, the high school still has some issues to address, such as funding priorities, providing gifted and talented students with greater opportunity, and maintaining a professional staff.
I loved attending PRA for the four years of high school that I was there. It was a great jump into school after being homeschooled til 8th grade. They are a college prep school that is also based on sports, and there are a lot of them, but right now we only a gym but no track or football field.
I would like to see the students treated as there age aka more freedom. It is essentially a prison school where even 18 year old students aren't allowed to go anywhere without supervision or really do anything on their own
Prospect Ridge Academy is now a K-12 and is growing school that has been founded in 2011. I have been attending PRA since 6th grade when it was just a K-6 school. Every year they added a grade level and I would be the first class. I am a Senior now who will be the first graduating class in May 2018. PRA is a college prep school with qualified teachers and supporting counselors. Although it is a small school, we've created a community and formed a family. PRA was the best decision that I have made.
Prospect Ridge Academy is a fantastic school built on a foundation meant to prepare students of all ages for college and the rest of their lives. The school puts a major emphasis on learning and academics. PRA offers a wide variety of sports for both genders, including varsity teams as a member of CHSAA. Despite providing broad opportunities for athletic students, PRA always strives to emphasize that academics come before sports and other activities. With a wide range of choices for classes, students are provided an environment to thrive in no matter their strengths or weaknesses. PRA is a smaller scale school ensuring a close-knit community as well as allowing for each student to feel significant. I would definitely recommend Prospect Ridge to kids of all ages as a wonderful K-12 school.
For the high school being a new addition, the school is doing okay but still needs some major improvements. The lack of certain sports and not having any sports fields to practice on/at is something very discouraging. The sports are not as high of a priority as they should be and the budget needs better management. The time frame for construction to be completed is not followed through with (i.e. when the school was first opened it was supposed to be finished by the time school started but it was 1-2 weeks into the school year when it was finished). When students have a problem with a staff member or a suggestion/idea for the school it is never seriously considered by the administration. The number of core classes offered is weak and there are almost no elective choices. Most of the teachers are amazing and truly have the best in mind for their students ona daily basis. The atmosphere at school is college minded and prepares students for the future.
I love Prospect Ridge Academy. The student community if very welcoming and accepting to everyone. They staff makes it a point to make sure that you understand everything going on in class. I love the smaller classes with more of a one on one feel.
