My experience at provine was wondeful. All four years attending this school was amazing & I wish i could do it all over again. The teachers are amazing , the sports consists of very talented individuals, and they have more activities for students to get into than any other school I know of. I’m very honored to be a graduate of Provine & I will continue to make visits to still be apart of the school. I highly recommend anyone searching for a high school for their young one to make Provine an option! Your child will definitely love the school, sports, teachers, administrators, coaches, clubs, and everything else that comes with this school!

My experience at Provine was overall good, but only because I met some great people during my time here. Most teachers were aproachable and nice and our ex-principal was the best. She was our foundation and support system, in other words the mother we never had. However, Provine physically was not appealing and neither was the food that they served us. They treat us as if we are kids and not young adults by not giving us enough freedom. In order to leave a class we have to wear a vest, there’s a certain time when we are permitted to use the bathroom, and we must got to lunch with our classes. Underclassmen seem so unorderly and violent, but I believe that this is because our current principal portrays to have an I care attitude about our academics and shows no encourage nor emphasizes importance as our last principal did. I would love for my school to change to having better lunches, more certified teachers, a more caring principal, and a college ready atmosphere.
My experience at Provine High School was one like no other; I laughed, made memories, & made long term friends in the process. We have the best Alumnus & the best Homevoming in JPS, but most of, it turned me from little girl into young lady. I will never forget the memories of walking through halls of Provine or the life lessons being there taught me. But most of all I'll forever be...One School, One Team, One Dream,..Provine.
