There is is a new principal every years so if you don't like it wait a year it will change. The teachers are good but are underpaid. Many of the kids are ...  Read more

I attended PCCS from kindergarten to the middle of my sixth grade year. I currently attended a public high school 30 minutes from Grayslake and I have to say the academics At PCCS are a joke. I'm a fairly intelligent person and the school did nothing for anyone. We're essential taught to take standardized ...  Read more

I am a student at this school, let me just say they do bully a lot over here. starting from 5th grade and up. They focus to much on prairie and plants and all that, but they do not focus on math science or any like that. Our school does not have so much money and so they can not buy any science equipment. ...  Read more

Some this these reviews are so obviously posted by people who pose as concerned parents but are clearly simply detractors that it's laughable. All schools have pluses and minuses. Our daughter has thrived at PCCS and we have been pleased at the quality of the teachers and the welcoming atmosphere. ...  Read more

Our son was a struggling student at Woodland and this wonderful school took him to a level where he is now receiving above average grades. I would take negative comments on this site with a grain of salt, given the unionized area public school teachers are against the experimentation and out-of-the-box ...  Read more

My son loves this school but unfortunately the administration and some of those teachers are a big failure. From the principal to the secretary, they just don t know anything about anything. Their organization is very bad and their manners are words. If you try to get some help for your kid with ...  Read more

Plusses and minuses. Class size is small; the kids tend to be from families that are very committed to their education. Unique focus on the environment. Students have a variety of experiences not available elsewhere. Parent involvement is high. Open equally to Prairie Crossing residents and others ...  Read more
