    "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 you back. It is the ideal bureaucracy. Then there's the stupid Ipads. Issues setting it up because Prospect necessary apps not downloading and that's the student's fault? Get out pen and paper teachers and start teaching! Don't know what's special about Prospect... maybe it's just that the other high schools are worse."

    "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 by the ipad. What they were expecting? They gave him a 700 dollar entertainment system to use in class and he lost interest in adverbs - imagine that!!! I will say the special ed teachers are hard working and I appreciate their commitment."

    "Prospect High School is a school for students who want to do something with their lives. Students who achieve at Prospect study their materials and do their homework and if needed, go to the Math and Science Resource Room or recently added Knight's Learning Center to be certain they understand the materials they are going to be tested on. As with any public high school, there are immature teenagers and bullies but the majority of the teens work hard in their studies. Teachers and staff will put in extra hours to help students but students must take the initiative. In addition, Prospect has great sports and arts programs as well as clubs that most students will enjoy. If students want to excel at Prospect they have to be the ones to work hard and create a relationship with their students. Lazy kids don't like Prospect because the majority of the students are hard working and A students."

    "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."

    "Prospect High School. My daughter was failing in many classes at the beginning of the year. It doesn't matter how smart your child is, if they refuse to do the homework, they will fail! She has since been super motivated by a caring Math teacher. She now has an A in Algebra, and all of her grades have risen. Prospect has many opportunities for extracurricular activities, including driver's ed. I have taken my job as parent seriously, and kept in touch with the teachers and threatened to withhold those extracurricular activities. The teachers do not want the students to fail but they need the parent's support to help motivate the students. Get involved."
