The overall quality of teachers if great! There is a great variety of teachers at Sun Prairie High School, and they all care about their students and their education. The teachers styles of the teacher all vary to accommodate the learning styles of many students; we do class discussions, lectures, projects, group projects, and read books in order to understand our curriculum. Also, all the teachers have a lot of knowledge of the area they are teaching in as all of them graduated a four-year university with a proper degree. The teachers also have very easy communication hours, as they utilize their district emails and allow their students to converse with them via that format. Overall, the teaching staff at Sun Prairie High School is very satisfactory.
Review Sun Prairie High School
Sun Prairie High School has outstanding teachers, counselors, administrators, and coaches that really care about the education and growth of every kid. The school is very diverse, and you have the opportunity to participate in a lot of different activities. It is a great school!
I am very fortunate to be able to attend Sun Prairie High School. The teachers are amazing and incredibly caring. Each day we are challenged and supported in various ways to help us achieve our own definitions of success. However, at times I feel that our high school can lack community and understanding. Every high school contains the blending of students and diversity and I think Sun Prairie High School should work towards accepting that. Everyone has their own strengths and differences and we should accept that.
