This is the BEST school you can find around here. Not "one of". Everything is about the little one. The teachers are beyond expectation.

We love Prairie Star Elementary. All of the teachers are top notch and the principal is the best I have been involved with. She has elementary aged kids of her own (not at PSE) which makes her very relate-able. She strives to make every part of the school fantastic - academically, socially, via community service involvement and use of Blue Valley virtues. I can't compliment the principal, teachers, staff and school district enough. It's a VERY impressive school and district overall.

We love our school. From Principal, teachers, down to staff, all are all hard working professionals. Test scores really tell the story. This school can not be matched! Parent involvement is wonderful. The parents here really care and offer up their time to help. The opportunities and challenges available to our children here are truly amazing.

Very little latitude for 'square pegs' in this 'round hole' environment. Teachers are well-educated and motivated, test scores are great and many parents are happy. But, if you talk with parents whose children are 'different' ethnically, culturally, socioeconomically or behaviorally from the norm, many will say it's very difficult for students to fit into the dominant culture. There is a sense of elitism, a culture of fairly rigid conformity and a number of kids fall 'through the cracks'. This may not be different from other affluent suburban public schools, but is still a huge concern in a school so hugely lauded for excellence -- that many kids with cultural differences, learning differences or special needs, find themselves left out/left behind.

Prairie Star is one of the premier schools of the Blue Valley School district. Most teachers have grad degrees. The principal is involved, caring and one of the best I have ever known. The technology in the school is the best you will find anywhere. We treasured our three years there and our deepest regret in having to move was not leaving our home, our was we regretted having to leave Prairie Star.

Ok school. Poor principal. Not a good school for AP level students.

Prairie Star has provided our family with valuable teaching and learning tools for our children. We can't begin to explain how much involvement the teachers and principal give in the well being of each child. It's easy to see once passsing through theses doors, how such a school earns awards of distinctions.
