This school is GREAT! I had to pay for my children to attend private school due to a lack of safety not only in the school but in the surrounding neighborhood. My grandson can have a quality education and not have to worry about safety. Every child should have the right to learn in an environment that can provide this possibility and C.I.C.S. Prairie offers this to our children. KUDOS! Goes out to such a GREAT Principal and Staff! Thank you for all that you do.

My child has been at this school for K-2 and so far I don't have any complaints. My child has been learning at a well pace. I see and hear evidence of learning in many aspects. There is great structure and communication with parents especially for those that work full time and can't always be at their child's school on a regular basis.
