    "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."

    "Just to add exactly what the previous commentor said, this school is failing. My son is most likely the latest school dropout from Prospect. After 9 years of receiving an education from private schools and achieving the 'exceeding standards' scores on ACT tests alongside SAT test preps, somehow here he is a failing student, failing almost every single subject in Prospect through his 3 years of attending. No matter what you do in this school to raise your grade up, somehow you still fail. With a high hope, Prospect will find true educators who could teach today's youth."

    "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 manner. Unfortunately the majority of Prospect teachers these days are just kids themselves, fresh out of college with no maturity and no professionalism. I've had two other children graduate from Prospect and it was a wonderful school for them. The current teaching staff, with a few more mature exceptions, act like bullies and have no ability to actually teach. A person who reads from a book is not a teacher. A person who does not help those who need assistance is not a teacher. A person who belittles a teen who is trying to learn is not a teacher. Prospect needs to grow up."

    "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 them out into the general population. We are looking forward to graduation..... I think if you stay in the box you are expected to be in then your student will suceed....if you don't then you will be crushed and not supported. This is the first year we have been not supported by the special ed department and the gen ed teachers do a better job without their asisstance. I think that most of the parents in our situation are worn out by the time their kids get into HS and the lack of compassion is really telling. Graduation here we come!"
