This school is a very good.It has an outstanding physical education program that helps kids get in shape. There are alot of sports such as track, basketball, soccer, volleyball, football, etc. The extracurricular activities such as drama, music, art, etc. are really great for the kids. They have programs for failing students and students whose grades are not exceeding very well. The teachers are friendly and helpful. This school is a school I'd recommend to everyone.

I love this school. Everybody should have the chance to come here. There are so many academic and sporty clubs after school. There are sports for both boys and girls like track and football sometimes wrestling! If you do very well, you can get academic and athletic block P's to hold on to and to be proud of. There are great varieties of musical intruments to play such as the violin to the oboe. the art program is very good, you get to show off your handiwork! There is parents club and dances that parent, but mostly kids can go to. the teachers are great and help us whenever we need it. They rock! There is also the big mud pit. Its a huge pit of mud and parents, kids, and some teachers go ... i told you too much. Try it yourselves. Lastly, For the atheletic ones it is called Pride Week. You run 3 miles on Monday, 2 on Tuesday, 1.5 on Wednesday, 1 on Thursday and rest on Friday. It is fun! Please come to Prescott.
