Sun Prairie High School Reviews
Being able to live in Sun Prairie my whole life, I was able to have a wonderful experience at Sun Prairie High School. This high school is filled with amazing teachers that genuinely cares about helping their students and creating a comfortable atmosphere. The high school constantly tries to create a diverse school by having cultural events, and clubs. They acknowledge problems that students have and desperately try to fix them. Everyone in this school encourages students to head to college or the work force after high school. The school strives to help students become successful; everyone has a different view of becoming successful. Students are able to become successful by having an extra hour to get help, wonderful resources and helpful adults. Overall, Sun Prairie High School is a wonderful place to grow and become successful!
Sun Prairie is a very developed and growing town. I moved here around 4 years ago, the beginning my 8th grade year. SPHS only takes in grades 10-12, freshman are put into a different, smaller building. Overall, I believe that SPHS is nice, opportunity wise. Big school=more opportunities. There are also so many great teachers that are willing to help students do their best. The building itself is also very large and nice. Very open and bright. The reason why I decided to rate this school average is because of some of the students and the environment in general. This is definetly out of the school district's control, but it still affects me. A lot of the students are problematic and the school is pretty divided. Everyone has the right to their own opinions, but sometimes it creates intense tension. It's hard for me to ignore, because I too am very passionate about my own opinions and beliefs. At the end of the day, I am only there for education, so I do my best to mind my own.
It was a decent school, ultimately I received a lot of support from my teachers and counselor that helped me graduate, and it's a very high quality building (great facilities), but there are a lot of ways it could be improved upon. I think the Music & Arts go very unappreciated there, largely eclipsed by the Athletic Departments. It doesn't get talked about, but there are also some real issues with racial prejudice, particularly on behalf of faculty/staff. They pride themselves on being inclusive and diverse but I have heard so many black students/students of color voice concerns over their treatment at the school (and I personally witnessed this kind of thing many times).
