Prosper High School is a class 6A public high school in Prosper, Texas. It is part of Prosper Independent School District located in western Collin County, with a small portion of the district extending into Denton County. In addition to Prosper, the district serves a portion of McKinney and small parts of Frisco and Celina.

The 2009–2010 school year began in a brand new building.
