Note from Principal Kim Salyer

As the Principal of PRP, I am looking forward to this school year more than any other in my career. I want to take this opportunity  to introduce myself to you. I am a life-long south end resident and I bring a passion for education and a vision for continued
growth and success to Pleasure Ridge Park. The PRP community is a uniquely close-knit group that stays involved with their schools. I want to assure you all that I, too, am devoted to PRP's success.  Having worked at PRP as a teacher, a counselor, and an assistant principal, I have had the opportunity  to see this wonderful school from a number of perspectives. It has been my good fortune to be a member of many great teams; I anticipate the PRP team to be the best. PRP is one offew remaining community schools. Let's keep that going! Rest assured that I value the long-standing traditions of PRP and that I will work to protect them.

Advance Program

In 1959, PRP High School was selected as one of the five original centers for the Advance Program, a complete program that focuses on critical thinking, abstract reasoning, and self-expression. Seasoned teachers encourage gifted and talented students to reach their potential. The Advance Program students are challenged in the classroom and are accustomed to a rigorous curriculum that allows them to be successful in college.
