My child was relocated here after having his home destroyed from Hurricane Katrina and losing all his lifelong friends. I cannot thank the school faculty and all who were concerned with adjustment and counseling enough for their supreme efforts. To say that this school is awesome is an understatement and I want you to know how very much we, as parents appreciate everything you do.
3 of my children have attended Prairie, I am VERY dissappointed in the way things are hadled disipline wise. A student advisor (dean) is VERY rude to the children and VERY unfair when a parent shows up he turns into a angel. VERY DISSAPPOINTING. I am in the process of moving my children from this school for this MAIN reason. Lot's of first year teachers that dont have the skills to teach pre-teens, if your looking for somewhere to send your kids where someone else is watching them because you dont have time to be involved with your child and you dont care how they are treated, this school would be for you.
I can't say enough about Prairie Middle School. We came here after being in DPS and are very impressed. The staff and teachers are the best! Dr. Cassaday is truly a gifted,intelligent woman who deeply cares about the success of these students. Cheers!
I went to Prairie for three years, the first year was average, but those following were litterally the worst, most restricted years of my life. They held whole 'teams' consisting off 100+ students in for lunch because of what a group of 2-5 did, the teachers ranged from excellent to terrible, one litteraly insulted her students to their faces, but when parent teacher conferences came around, she was 'such a sweet lady' homework loads went over the top, to the point myself and others lost hours of sleep, and the school was generaly mismanaged, since the new principal came, Prairie has transformed from a school to a daycare for pre/young-teens. It has 'safty rules' but some of them are simply restrictive and useless, and don't help with real problems.
