Prairie Elementary is a great school to be a part of. Both of my children attend this school and I couldn't ask for better communication, involvement, and commitment than what I am receiving now. This school makes my children feel as though they are part of a family and have given them the steps to become leaders in the school and personal life.
A strong principal makes up for a lot of the facilities troubles in this school. There are a lot of portable buildings and inadequate bathroom facilities. We put up with these because of the perks. French Immersion program. Fantastic, year-round library services. Most of the teachers are happy to be there and bring that joy into the classroom. Janitors working hard to keep things clean. Very parent-volunteer friendly. INCREDIBLE Physical Education program, TOP of the district. A playground to make any child love school. Of course each teacher brings a different personality to the classroom and there's probably a few less enthusiastic teachers in there, but most kids have a positive experience here.
