9 Parent Reviews for Prairie Norton Elementary School

I had my daughter in this school for Kindergarten only.. Ms Oney was a great teacher, very involved and she went out of her way to schedule a meeting with me that fit my schedule. The academic program was good. The only i do not like, which is the district not the school, is that there is not all day ...  Read more

I love Prairie Norton Elementary. I went here when I was little and now my son goes there. The teachers are great and the staff is friendly. My son was a little behind the other kids at the beginning of his Kindergarten year and his teacher helped him get caught up. The only bad things I can think ...  Read more

My son is in 1st grade this year and it has been horrible. The teacher he has this year pretty well told me to take my son to the dr. and put him on meds. He is a great kid and is incredibly smart. He never has behavior problems at home other than the norm. I am a nurse and have seen kids with ADD and ...  Read more

The school has scored great on state report cards! Great staff! To the previous parent. Some of your comments range from unfactual to laughable. There is no rule about using 1 sheet of TP. How would that be enforced - yuk. Since 30 percent of the school and community are ESL then it makes sense that ...  Read more

There are no extra activities ...  Read more

Prairie norton does have caring teachers, but they are so overwhelmed by ESL (english second language) students that they did not properly help my son with AUTISM, the ESL students got more extra help then he did and they qualified for 5 day kindergarten where my son with a genuine disability did not.

I recently moved from Wa. State were the funding for public schools is totally different, therein making for better schools. I like PNE for several reasons. I like that the students are treated fairly especially because the racial diversity is huge, not just Hispanic. The teachers are amazing despite ...  Read more

PNE has excellent state scores and a caring staff. All students are treated with respect and individual attention is given regardless of their background. PNE has about 30% Hispanic or ESL students not 75% like another parent claimed. I think that is about equal to the other schools in the area. The ...  Read more

This school does extremely well considering 75 percent of it's students are Hispanic and speak broken English. The test scores continue to improve every year even with the district constantly making cuts. For a building being over 50 years old, it is in good shape and well maintained. The staff works ...  Read more
