I've been at Prosser since my Freshman year and it isn't a bad school since the space is quite small but easy to remember your way around. As my last year approaches, I've had some good memories from past friends but seen a whole lot of crazy stuff happen at Prosser. There are some downsides to Prosser though such as the school lunch being okay but not good, and teachers doing average when teaching. Recently we've had a big renovation for our CTE program to help improve student's work by fixing a part of the building with more updated equipment and more cleaner and convenient bathrooms. The new renovations have made working there more cozy and enjoyable since the old rooms were just too old or messy or simply not enough room to help spread more active work for students. But hopefully, the future students at Prosser will enjoy the new environment to make them feel safe and warm in class till they head out to college like me in a matter of a few months.

The CTE shops have been remodeled, providing more opportunities and a brighter future for many. The CTE is a career pathway that most students at this school take. The CTE shop is taken for 3 years. You have this shop for 1 period, your sophomore year, and 2 periods your junior and senior year. Although this is a high school, you are given the fundamentals of the CTE shop in which you choose to perfer. However the understanding of the CTE shop progresses as you advance to the next year with the CTE shop. The involvement also progresses because you're able to understand it and value it more. There are several guests who comes to these shops and helps the students as well progress their skills obtained in the shop
It was the best four years of my life! The teachers, counselors, and staff were really good at their job. They prepared me for the real world, always encouraged me to do my best, and helped me whenever I needed help with anything whether it be school related or personal problems.
