21 Parent Reviews for Prospect High School

Just a few days into the school year and issues already. Hopefully I write a better review in the next months. Warning to parents of incoming freshman: it is hard to get a response from anyone here. You leave messages for questions about bus routes or processes new to your student and nobody calls ...  Read more

If this one of the top schools in our country, we are in a sorry state. I am not down on Prospect, but it is nothing special. The sports programs are average. But the teachers are hardly inspirational. The school handed my kid an ipad and the teachers complained he was distracted during class ...  Read more

Students and teachers in this school are bullies. If you try to reach out for help, you DO NOT get it. I still have not recovered from the abuse I had gotten from my peers. Whatever you do, don't force your child through a school like this.

I agree with the parent who said that the kids are not supported, especially in the Math Department. God forbid your child stays home sick for a day or two. The teachers do not want to accept "late" homework after an illness and it is a battle to get these people to even communicate with me in a civil ...  Read more

My son is at this school and in the special ed program. He has been in 2 sports and on the B honor role.This year it seems like there is a lot of things missing. He has missed out on a quality language arts program. The special ed department seems to want to keep the kids in their section and not move ...  Read more

The school is great, and the teachers really great with students. The athletic department is dominant here.

We had two children go through this school and I can say we were extremely pleased with the academic, music and sports programs. Both our children were involved in honors and AP classes while being athletes and musicians. Our daughter graduated with scholarships for academic, athletic and music. Our ...  Read more
