i am very excited about this school but at this point i cannot give an intelligent review since my grandchild has not had the opportunity to attend.

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.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
