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 High School offers an unimaginable variety of electives, as well as extracurriculars. Everything SP does, they do 100%. Girls Varsity Cross Country has now won state TWO years in a row! One pretty cool elective is CNA ( Certified Nursing Assistant) which takes you through the process of becoming a nursing assistant. Once through this course, students are eligible to work at nursing homes part-time. SP also has an exceptional theatre program. The Performing Arts Center has professional grade stage lighting and sound equipment, complete with balcony seating. The teachers care about their jobs and are enthusiastic about the classes they teach, which creates a great learning environment.
After transferring from a smaller school district right before my Sophomore year, the transition, at first, was difficult. However, because of the spectacular atmosphere in Sun Prairie, I was quickly able to make friends. This was especially do to the giant range of extra curriculars offered for every student's interests. I was able to maximize my learning through their vast course selections and amazing teachers. Not only that, but the building itself is phenomenal. I esepcially love the beautiful auditorium, music concerts and plays are unbelievable.
