My daughter got sent here for kindergarten since we enrolled late (december). Overall we had a positive experience with Prescott. In the kindergarten there was lots of parental involvement. I had worries because my daughter was white, whereas most of her class was african american and latino, but she fit right in and made friends with children in her class and older kids. There were some namecalling incidents. I think that the kids are a bit rough in behavior and language.Lots of namecalling. Probably the school needs to implement a program to focus more on positive peer to peer relationships. The principal is decent. I think it would be good if she tried to communicate and work with parents more.

Prescott elementary has a great principal that always does her best. A problem with prescott however is the students that go there...a big portion of them mouth off to the teachers and are very disruptive and defiant individuals...thus making some of the teachers develop attitudes. This school needs to improve it's peer relations among students.

Prescott has a great principal that really cares. They also have a good music program. Their Honor Roll award program is the best around. Each child that has been on the honor roll 2 or more time each school year gets a trophy, a t-shirt, and dinner for the student and their parents. We look forward to it every year.
