Great School so far! I have a sixth grader who attend this school currently name changed to Prairie Ridge Middle School. My daughter loves her friends and they teachers are wonderful there as well. Teacher is very informative and keeps parent up todated with all that's happening in their classroom. I love how they have parent and student portal site so you can check your child's progress. The teacher will keep this current at all time. Great tools for busy parent! Student can also access this portal to check how they are doing. This school is great if you are thinking about sending your child here.

at northview the teachers maybe be nice and mostly fun. it's very disorganized and puts a lot of weight on someone's shoulders. which is important for the future but is a lot to handle at 14 yrs.
