As a former student, I can honeslty say that Prairie Ridge was the best thing that ever happened to me. This may sound somewhat dramatic, but prior to PR I had a low C average, and had no plans on going to college. At PR I found a love for learning; soon my low Cs turned into low As, and am now at ...  Read more

Anyone who is disappointed in any way in Prairie Ridge High School, needs to take a look at what they are saying in these reviews. The negative reviews about PR are very isolated situations. The test scores at Prairie Ridge are the highest in the area, and that is why real estate prices jump over 20% ...  Read more

I just graduated from Praire Ridge High School and I thought it was excellent academically. They offered classes many schools do not because of the level of difficulty and succeeded in them with no problem. Although PR thrives academically the guidance counselors do not and I have only seen the principal ...  Read more
