    We are very happy with Prospect School. The teachers are great and there is an attempt to differentiate instruction based on the child's level with out any pressure. The children are well behaved. They have great music art and gym teachers. The facilties are awesome with new building and all the latest books and equipment. There is a fair bit of diversity and the PTO is very involved. I love this school and the neighborhood.

    Agree with the first post. We moved to the area in 2004 when the new Prospect School opened and the curriculum and faculty are superb and engaged and interested in the education of the children they teach. More importantly the widespread incolvement of the parents in the community who are willing to volunteer their time and talent and setting an expectation of excellence has truly made this an exceptional learning experience for my three kids.

    This is a truly wonderful school. The teachers and staff are highly educated and insightful to the needs of each student. A new school was built next to the old one so now Prospect School has the latest technology and room available to even better serve the students. If considering this school just come around 3 00 pm every day and just ask any one of the many parents waiting to walk their child(ren) home I'm sure they would agree!
