I have two children in PREL and I love it. The principle is very open and receptive to talking with parents. I feel like I am always aware of what is going on (Facebook updates, emails, phone notifcations). This school is never afraid to try new things if old things are not working and always keeps the ...  Read more

I have had nothing but a positive experience at Prairie Ridge. My son is in the 4th grade, and has gone here since Kinder, and my daughter is in the 2nd grade too.

We have had great teachers at this school and have our third child there in kindergarten. The staff takes the time to know each of my children. It says a lot when your kids love to go to school.

If you just want average. This is the school to pick. This is our first year at this school and I have to say my daughter will not be returning next year. Not only are the trailers of a turn off. The playgrounds are hardly monitored.

We had to go to the district to get someone who seemed to care about our concerns regarding ...  Read more

Prairie Ridge has a dedicated staff that works hard to meet each student's needs. The teaching staff is very dedicated and accessible. The principal, Mr. Hoel knows each student and is very involved.

My son started first grade at Prairie Ridge this year and I have been very impressed. The staff is welcoming and the principal is very responsive. Even though the school is huge my sons class only has 19 students.

If this school is as overcrowded as people say, I think they are doing a great job regardless. My son has learned so much this year and I am very proud of his accomplishments. His teacher is doing an excellent job with him and he enjoys going to school. My daughter will be attending Kindergarten next ...  Read more

The school is overcrowded and the teachers seem to care but they don't get much support from their school board. The school district has been mismanaged and they were over $14 million in debt in 2003. Just recently it was found the district is in violation of state laws concerning finances. They have ...  Read more
