-- The first Prospect Elementary, on Prospect Avenue, was built 1871-1880. That building was razed in 1931 and replaced that same year with a new building. Originally named Mt. Washington School, it was renamed Prospect School by reason of its location on Prospect Avenue. Name was changed to avoid confusion with school in Mount Washington Boro. (Page 207.)
-- Prospect Junior High, located on Prospect Street near Southern Avenue, was built 1931-1936. It was named Prospect Junior High School by reason of its location on Prospect Street. (Page 236.)
