My educational experience consisted of great teachers and being surrounded in a great environment where the school staff felt like family. The school consisted of amazing programs that helped students become an active part of their community and becoming better citizens. The one thing that I will say is that for such a great school, the condition of the school itself is very poor. The walls are breaking down and there are holes in ceiling. It was an amazing experience to be given the opportunity the complete my high school career at Prosser Career Academy. Go falcons!

Prosser Career Academy is a place where you can really get involved due to sports and clubs. You can also engage and have a one on one relation with your teachers. The counselors are always there to make sure you are on track. They have different programs that help students achieve success academically. Their programs are the IB programs, CTE and One Goal. They also offer the ROTC program that a lot of students take advantage of. It's not very diverse when it comes to students but the teachers do come from different backgrounds. The student capacity is around 800 students.
Prosser is a very good school which prepares students for future careers and college. One thing that is very special about this school and makes it different from others is that it has classes like auto technician and carpentry which provides them with field experience for future job opportunities without taking them out of their comfort zone and making them stressful because they are only there for experience and are not being forced to be perfect at it. This school also have many teachers who show patience and are willing to work with students until they understand the topic they are being taught. Overall the school does need improvements in facilities but are outstanding in everything that they do for the students and prepare them for their future.
