I went to Prairie for all 3 years and I for the most part loved it. Many of the teachers that I came in contact with were nice and friendly. I will say that the teachers can be a little nosy, which can be a good thing. My friends and I were having personal issues and pretty much the whole staff jumped in to help. This happened actually every year I attended... MOST of the teachers will jump in if your grades aren't superb, but you will occasionally encounter a teacher who wants to teach you about how it will be in high school and won't care about your grade. My little brother is entering the 6th grade and we are definitely sending him here.
I never got to go over my cousin studying in this school, and the comments I think it's a great school =D
I absolutely LOVE Prairie!! It is an amazing, diverse school! One thing that makes this school diverse is the different kinds of cultures and races. I am in 6th grade and I am loving my teachers and the principal, Dr Cassady! She is a great principal, if she weren't she wouldn't bother to learn some of the students names! She know my cousins name, my brothers name, and my name. She encourages students to learn and listen to the teachers to be successfull in their future lives. I have never gotten straight A's in my life except for now in 6th grade and I know I will continue earning them with the way the teachers teach the students. I think if it weren't for Prairie the former students wouldn't have now graduated. Prairie is a school to go to if you want to succeed!
It is your own child's fault if they don't want to put in the effort to be a better student. The teachers at Prairie actually do help a lot. Maybe you're not doing your part as a parent in making sure that your child is taking every opportunity given to improve their grade. I love Prairie and always have. The only thing my kids hate is the dress code. It's better than being put into uniforms though.
It is basically an APS school with CCSD badge on the front. It is similar to Overland with no communication with teachers. Oh yes, you kids will be allowed to fail semester after semester if you are not on top of it. If your kid has bad grades don't expect a call unless they get in trouble. Trying to get in better school district or school (he has 3.0 gpa) because I see the writing on the wall and just don't believe Prairie or Overland prepare kids for success unless your idea of success is your child in the Military or Massage Therapy degree from Heritage College. I want more and want teachers that believe and teach my kids that also.
The teachers at Praire are always willing to help. Many stay late grading papers, doing after school activities and tutorials. And they make sure that all students learn and understand the material. The principal, Dr. Cassaday, is a great prinicipal. She encourages the students, and informs them every week on PNN. PNN is a news broadcast by the studnets. The academics are outstanding. There is a class for everyone, and the core classes are selected specialy to suffice each students needs and abilities.
Terrible school I can't wait for the year to end so I can get my daughter to a school where the teachers/counselors can help her succeed.
This is my daughter's first year at Prairie. I am so grateful for everyone who works with and for the students at Prairie. My daughter comes homes from school and has so much to chair about what she has learned during the day. She loves the creative way the teachers present materials and how they recognize her individuality and encourage her. There music program is also wonderful.
this school is great diverse and the teachers stay late to make sure their students are getting all of their workvdone and that they understand it
I went to Prairie for 3 year and it's absolutely a wonderful school. I love how they split the academics up up in 3 communities. The teachers are so nice and if you have problems they deal with it the best that they can. I know that because I used to have problems daily and the teachers would comfort me and tell me they would deal with it and they did. My name is Katie Malina and I was in community 3 the time I was at Prairie and the 3 years I was there I felt like family. The prinicipal Dr. Cassiday is such a sweet woman and she brings happiness to where ever she goes. Prairie has great excellence and is very diverse. In fact Prairie is the most diverse in the county. Prairie has a lot of activities and every year they go to a Colorado Bulls ga
This is a wonderful school! I Have been going here for 2 years now and will complete in 8th grade year here also! The teachers are just wonderful leaders and always making the children a better learner! They make sure the child get the education that they need! Also the princible Dr. Cassady is a great lady! She brings joy to the classes and makes sure that it is a safe inviroment for us students! I love how the school divides up into 3 parts!I love my community, wich is number 2!I have grown to love and have so much care for the teachers in 7-2a! They are just wonderful teachers and outstanding friends! This school also has a clean enviroment. Every morning I just look foward to going back to prairie middle school!
There is always room for improvement. I believe the teachers actually care about the students who attend this school and are willing to go that extra mile to improve education. The knowledge base of many of the theachers is above average.
This is the best place ever. Never would my children go to another middle school. Prairie has wonderful teachers, students and a great principal. I love how they put the kids into 3 communities so they may focus more on teachings.
My children both attended Prarie with wonderful results. One with a learning disability received the kind of attention that prepared her for high school. My youngest child went from Prarie to Regis. Why is he successful at Regis? Because he went to Prarie.
My son has gone to this school for two years. The curriculum is poor at best. The teachers have no control of the classroom which creates a negative learning environment. I fear for my son's physical amd mental wellbeing.
I have been impressed with the staff and students at Prairie. My son is in the 8th grade, and is excited about going to school! The teachers are invested in our children - helping mold characters as well as minds.
I would not want my child to attend any other school than Prairie. Dr. Cassaday is a TERRIFIC leader and the administration is top notch. Everyone at the school cares about the students. Diversity is our strength and students are not just taught a rigorous curriculum, they are taught life skills in dealing with people different than they are. The band program (including the newly resurrected Jazz Band) is phenomenal thanks to the leadership of Martin Martinez. Parental involvement could be higher, but the ones we have spend a lot of volunteer hours because they love the school, students and staff so much. The new Springboard curriculum (pre-Advanced Placement classes)is going well and challenging our students.
I went to Prairie for only one year and I already know that it is one of the best school years of my life. There is such great students there and Dr. Kassaday is the best! The teachers are fun out of school and in school. I would love to go back there again!
