More focus on athletics than anything else. Preparation for college seems non-existant. Band, music, sciences programs etc. are weak. This district seems more focused on trades and non-college-bound graduates.

Excellenat Principal. Works great with students and parents. Not easily swayed by politics of parents. Great. Great ex-curricular programs. Glad my children attend.

It wasn't until I graduated from Prosper High School and talked to others about their high school experiences that I realized just how amazing PHS was. There is definitely enough academically to engage even the smartest kids. There are so many opportunities that you get at PHS that wouldn't be available at another small school -- in my time there, I was in band, editor of the newspaper, on dance team, in theater, did computer science, and took some courses for credit at the community college instead of at the high school level. This is hands down an amazing school. I will be disappointed when it comes time to find a comparable school for my own daughter.

My child attends Prosper High School Now and she is on the very edge of dropping out. Prosper is probably one of the worst schools you could ever drag your child too. The teachers are very hard on the students with no help whats so ever. I do not recommend you sending your child or children their!

I attended this high school and thought that it was FABULOUS! There are many avalible activities even though it is only a 2A school. The parents are very envolved but sometimes go overboard. The teachers are excellent ,however, like in all Texas high schools, athletes get special treatment, which is hardly ever a factor when a parent steps in. I enjoyed my time in PHS and wish it could never had ended.
