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.

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.
I like that the school has a lot of students, which allows for many opportunities. For one, this gives students the ability to really find their place since there are many different friend groups and personalities within the school walls. Another reason why having a lot of people is great is because it makes it very competitive. Not only in sports, but also in education and the arts. This pushes students to be the best versions of themselves. I would like the school to handle issues in a different way. It seems like there are struggles every once and a while but not real change.
