A good school is one that has a principal, teachers and staff that cares about and strives for progress and success for ALL students. If you have a child that struggles, you will not get the support you need at Prairie High School.

I absolutely love Prairie High school. I came from a private school my freshmen year and was placed into lower classes even though I was one of the top students at my old school.

I've had three children (2 grads & 1 current) go through Prairie. We moved here from the midwest 5 years ago where there is immeasurably greater community tax-support of schools. The lack of funding to the Battle Ground school district reduces the richness of offerings: no orchestra anywhere in the ...  Read more

I am currently a senior at Prairie and I find it academically a good school but they charge for a sport and if you cant afford it too bad for you then. I feel they need to utilize their money better and not charge so much for sports or have some type of a scholarship program for those who can not afford ...  Read more

I graduated from Prairie in 2003. Overall my experiences were positive, with a variety of extracurricular activities and ways for students to get involved in the school and community. I had many excellent teachers throughout my four years, and enjoyed the variety of subjects offered. I did not notice ...  Read more
