This is a great school! The principal works hard to educate her staff on current best practices and strives to create a safe and engaging learning environment. While there has been a large turnover in staff, it is all for better. The students at this school are learning important 21st Century Skills ...  Read more

Looking forward to some positive changes for the 2013/2014 school year. Prairie Hills has gone through some tough times these past few years with the new principal a couple of years ago and a lot of changing staff. Hopefully this school can become as GREAT as it once was. Let's do it for the kids!!

1 of my children went here for a year. It was awful. She would have received a better education had she stayed home and watched tv all year. When The Classical Academy accepted our child into their school, we had no hesitation accepting their offer. Sadly, she was nearly a full year behind due to the ...  Read more

DO NOT RECOMMEND. The staff/administration is very hands off. If you have an issue. Know that you will not have the support of the principal. As always, attitudes come from the top down. There are many schools in the district. Don't count on the school supporting you for ANY modification for your ...  Read more

I have 2 kids that go there and the school and staff is wonderful and never had any problems with them. They went through and redone the hold SSN program and it is alot better than before. No problems at all with any aspect of the school or the teachers or principle and administration there.

Students are given extra support to enhance their learning. Everyone is caring and puts the needs of children first. We ...  Read more

This is the worst school I have ever seen! My son has special needs and was neglected and bullied so badly at this school by students, subs, paras and other staff. I have also never seen an Admin staff go to such great lengths to cover up issues at a school.

DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO THIS SCHOOL. I am saddened that such a beautiful school is ran so poorly. The Principal acts disgruntled and is not approachable at all. She never even greets parents or students. The Admin team as a whole is non-responsive to issues that arise, regardless of whether ...  Read more

Both of my children have attended Prairie Hills since 2006. All of their teachers have been very devoted, caring, and sensitive to their individual needs. They were challenged and motivated to be their personal best. The principals over the last four years have been responsive and reached out to the ...  Read more

My daughter attended this school during the 2009-2010 Kindergarten school year. The positives are: The facilities are very nice and the Kindergarten teacher was a good fit for my daughter. She did the best she could with 25 kids. The after school program is fantastic, they worked one on one with ...  Read more
