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.
The reviews below mentioning a problem with bullying and the poor handling of the situations are true.
The principal is more than willing to meet with parents to discuss the issue and keep up the appearance she is doing something but then nothing is done. The bullies continue to victimize the other kids.
Appearances of are deceiving. It seems like a small school with a concerned and involved staff but it isn't.
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.
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Prairie Hills Elementary school. The teachers are wonderful. They truly care about the students and how they learn. I LOVE the special education team. They are remarkable and always give 100% of themselves. Finally, the principal is great and has the ability to help families whether she does it herself or has assistance completing issues within the school environment.
I am beyond pleased with our experience at PHE. My daughter tells me every day she LOVES school! I know its due to a great staff. The principal, Mrs. Hastings is approachable, and passionate about education, the front office staff is very friendly and helpful, and my daughter's teacher has made school fun and exciting.
