What is Prospect High School?

Prospect High School is an alternative high school in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District.  We focus on small class sizes, close interaction with teachers and staff, and credit recovery.


Who Can Come To Prospect?


Any student in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District from age 16 to 18 may apply to Prospect.  Application packets are available through administrators and counselors at each high school.


Where is Prospect?


We are located on the campus of the Pleasant Hill Education Center.  Our classrooms are located at the ends of the 300 wing. The rooms are next to the Horizons Center for Independent Study.


Which school do I graduate from?


You may graduate from either Prospect Necessary Small High School or your Comprehensive High School.  If you want to graduate from a Comprehensive HS, you will need to make up any additional credits or requirements and re-enroll full-time for the second semester.


Does Prospect have a graduation ceremony?


As a small school, we join with other alternative schools in the district for our graduation ceremony at the Concord Pavilion.  The ceremony is the same as for all high schools in the district.
