I believe that this school is the ideal middle school in my opinion because it brought me happiness just by going to school on the week days. The teachers are very nice and made students feel as if they were to come first.there is also various beneficial after school programs,sports,and electives that can improve your knowledge and give you more experience towards a specific subject.

Horrible school, to many fights and the Staff was very rude and unhelpful. Do not send your child here. I know I'm not sending my daughter here next year.

Hi, well I might disagree with all the letters on this bulletin. In my opinion Prairie Vista Main is actually a perfect school to send your child to. I am not a perfect student at all but I know for a fact that Prairie Vista is pretty awesome and not undisciplined. This school has disciplined teachers. Unfortunately, is not the teacher's fault that the students are so undesciplined and are so out of control but is actually the parents who don't bother to pay attention to their kids. I love this school and I think you should send your child to this school. This school also has many extracurricular activities and programs and also the A.L.L Program. The A.L.L Program helps you understand class lessons and helps you with your homework plus let's you have some free time with your friends to hangout.This is my opinion.

I am a student from prarie Vista. It's not the most decent school, yet it is average. From my point of view, some of the teachers don't put much effort into teaching us a new lesson, or helping us understand some problems we have. Also, they most be stricter and get students to understand authority espiecially when we're entering the teenage life.

I am a student at prairie vista and it is a okay school.although most kids will not listen to the teacher I managed to get a 4.0 grade average,and so did a few other students.most kids however did not get such high standard grades.at prairie vista we do have plenty of extracurricular activities and programs such as band/strings,drama,and sports.we even have exploratory classes I know most schools do but some of the schools dont.prairie vista is a okay school but it is not the best school I would recommend you to send your child to.

This is an okay school with little extracuricular activities but ample oppurtunity to succeed academically.

My child attended the 6th grade campus last year. I met with most of his teachers , except PE, and was very happy with them and their lesson plans. However, I found out that some of them had to curb their planned lessons to prepare the kids for state testing. I don't think my child had a full year of indtruction in history and science because the teachers are forced to concentrate on math and languarge arts. Students also have the option of only one elective class - art.

My child has attended Prairie Vista Middle School since the sixth grade and it has been a terrible experience for her. The students at this school are undisciplined and have no respect for authority. Since she has arrived to this school, she has been torrmented and bullied everyday without an end. Cursing, including cursing at the teachers and staff, fighting, and refusal to do work are common occurances at this school with these students. The faculty and staff have been uncaring and unhelpful--despite many attempts on my part to get help for my child. The environment is so bad at this school that a serious, well behaved student, like my child, has a difficult time even concentrating, much less learning. The curriculum is far behind and parent involvement is non-existant. Overall, the school is not worth sending your child to.
