EPHS Holds 7th Annual ‘Insights Prom’
Eden Prairie High School’s cafeteria was recently transformed into a prom paradise for its 7th annual Insights Prom.
According to the Sun Current, while prom is often seen as a right of passage for high school students, but for those with special needs the event can be over-stimulating or daunting. Insights Prom was started to give those students the prom experience in a more comfortable environment.
“We pair up—special education students with general education students,” senior Tyra Ericson told the newspaper. “It’s just a chance to experience a school dance with more of a safe environment.”
At this year’s even, more than 70 special education and general education students came together April 22 to enjoy music, dancing and fun.
