    "My student began school by joining a sport and got to know a group of kids that were focused and driven to do well. She is genuinely enjoying her High School experience. The staff appear to actually care about their success in school."

    "Prospect has been improvoing every year. Our kid is a junior. The new pricipal is a bit week and I think the VP is also new. Very strong English teachers are Mr. Manning and Mrs. Churchill. Strong Spanish teachers are Mr. Tejada and Profesora Adler. Good math teachers are Mrs. Ahmad and Mr. Igoe. The teachers care about students and help at Study Hall and after school. Our daughter has been involved in sports , music and Mock Trial. Prospect has a lot to offer the motivated students. Things are getting better every year."

    "Prospect is gifted with a diverse student body, excellent teachers, a beautiful campus, and great extracurriculars. The sports teams such as track, tennis, and field hockey are consistently powerhouses, and extracurriculars like mock trial and debate seem to be doing well too. Unfortunately, the new principal seems uncomfortable in her role and is unwilling to work with many teachers, weakening the previously strong AP curricula. Any student who puts in the effort can succeed at this school, as is shown by the students accepted to Ivy Leagues, Berkeley, UCLA, and other top colleges."

    "The freshmen honors classes-English and biology-are fairly good. The teachers maintain order and the material makes you think, rather than only memorize. The English teacher is an engaging teacher who thinks of fun assignments. My biology teacher is a gruff old man with a soft heart. The Spanish department is atrocious. We do exercises in the workbooks for the whole period. The teacher does not teach. Kids who are retaking the class crack bad jokes and disrupt the class on a daily basis, without facing any consequences. If you truly want to learn Spanish, you must be self-motivates and teach yourself. The geometry teacher that I have is rude and condescending. Though we do learn in this class, he talks as though we are stupid. The atmosphere of this class could definitely be improved. The kids here, in general, seem to be hurting and act very angry. They swear constantly and revel in crass humor. There is a very low expectation for their behavior and maturity, sub-standard to other high schools in the vicinity. To sum it up, the honors teachers are worth your time, the Spanish department should be evaluated and dissolved ASAP, and the general atmosphere on campus is not pleasant."

    "Took my daughter out of this school midway through the year because it was clear that staying at the school was a waste of time. People who say this is a good school are in denial."
