This school is awesome! The staff and teachers are fabulous! The teachers really help our children academically as well as helping and teaching them to be good people! Our community is very lucky to have such a great school!!
We had nothing but problems from day one. The office staff is not friendly or help full the Principal doesn't know how to do her job. The school has a huge bullying problem and the administration does nothing to fix it. The classes are way to full. The teachers we worked with were great but they can only do so much when they don't have the support of the administration and the district is okay with having a grading system that only wants the kids to meet basic standards.
We relocated from another state and were extremely disappointed with the poor communication, lack of organization and poor planning from the school administrators. The teachers were all very good but, had their hands tied with what was allowed of them. We were to have the class assignments today, 8/8/16, as posted at the school, by 3 pm. Ten minutes prior, we get an email stating that they will be assigned on Friday which is also the day of meet the teacher. It will be mass chaos trying to determine which teacher our children have, where to go and how many other parents will be there at the same time unable to "meet the teacher" due to the fact that they will be extremely busy. This is a small example of the frustrations we had ALL LAST YEAR! Terribly run. Very sad for the children.
We have two kids moving through the school (one in 4th, one in 2nd) and we've been very happy with five of the six teachers our kids have had. Great extra-curricular activities are offered. No complaints.
We love Prairie Hills Elementary. We have had our children here for the last 6 years and are truly blessed to be here. We have had some exceptional teachers through the years and their love for teaching and each child is evident. They are working diligently for each child to succeed and grow academically as well as encourage them character building. The front staff is amazing!!! They know each child by name as well as their families and even younger siblings who are not yet enrolled in the school. Impressive! The specials teachers are another wonderful asset to our elementary adding diverse learning and some very fun after school programs. Lastly my 4 children love going to school. That is a credit and testimony to the leadership, teachers and staff of our school.
