17 Parent Reviews for The Prairie School

I have one Prairie graduate in college feeling well prepared and one still in high school at Prairie loving every day of it. I highly recommend checking out Praire for your child. We are grateful every day that our kids are able to experience the Prairie advantage.

Our kids switched to The Prairie School from public school and we couldn't be happier! Unfortunately the old saying is true, "you get what you pay for" and these days a private education far surpasses a public one (at least in Wisconsin). The teachers and staff truly care about the well-being of our ...  Read more

The independence and success our three kids are presently experiencing--in their mid/late 20's--we feel is directly connected to their experience at Prairie. The bar was consistently set high, and they learned to both produce--and be respectful. We are still stunned by what we paid over the years, ...  Read more

The Prairie School is awesome. We can't say enough positive things about this school - it's families, teachers and the opportunities it has provided. It's been a great thing for our two sons who both have developed a wide range of friends who all are great kids. This opportunity to attend this school ...  Read more

Placed two children one of which graduated from the school. Parents can be rather quirky and affected, especially the moms that are for the most part exceedingly aloof and unapproachable in my opinion. Many of the fathers in my opinion seemed beaten down and exhausted, Teachers are decent, however there ...  Read more

This school was a blessing for our child. Prairie far exceeds the quality and standards of any public schools our older children attended and is certainly one of the finest college preps schools in the nation. The teachers are dedicated, caring and concerned for the best interest of every student. ...  Read more

With two children at the school, I can attest that they are getting the best educational experience they could receive in the SE Wisconsin area. This is a child-centered school that is not forced to follow ridiculous NCLB test-them-to-death standards, allowing for true in-depth learning to occur. The ...  Read more

We have three kids at Prairie, they are excellent at all grade levels. We had been at another private school in the area and can say without question Prairie is the best around.

Both of my children graduated from Prairie School. They were very different in every way yet Prairie was able to help each of them find their strengths and work around their weaknesses. Each graduated from outstanding universities and have gone on to become successful and productive members of society. ...  Read more

The Prairie School is a business, not a school. The teachers are outstanding, but the administration has little concern for the well being of the students. The students at the school are excessively cliquey and those who are included in the cliques are left to fend against torment from their peers. This ...  Read more
