Nothing but good things to say about Prairie View. Our son has attended since kindergarten and with one exception has always had teachers that challenged him. As he moves to middle school he has qualified for all advanced placement courses. Definitely would recommend this school, but would also remind parents to stay involved in the process.
Great staff, great students! It's sad to see what parents find to complain about based on reading other reviews. Teachers are overworked and underpaid, and they go above and beyond to help the children. Maybe the complaining parents should step up, read with their child at home, and work WITH, not against, the teachers.
This school was decent during the early two-thousands when my oldest attended, but then the quality dropped. I don't know if it was typical paranoia that made the school become a locked-up daycare, and I say daycare because they really don't teach much, but watch your kids while you work. The teachers have become more militant and show extra special attention for children whose parents are part of the PTA. My youngest told me how since 2010 he will walk the halls and listen to teachers yell at the kids and demonstrate little patience towards them. If you have a daughter you should know that after recess when they line the kids up, they make them sit on the asphalt, so if it is hot day or a really cold winter day, with ice or frost on the ground, they will make your daughter sit on that cold or hot asphalt. This is bad if she wears skirts or a dress. Also, the recess aids are PTA mommies who stand around and talk or text and don't pay attention if there is a bully on the playground. No one told me some of the real details about PVE, but I think parents should be aware.
I love the faculty and staff. We have always had a great experience at PVE and couldn't have better teachers and staff. They are always trying to put the kids first.
Prairie View Elementary School has the best teachers who cares about the kids. The principals always participate at the school events to get a chance to talk with the parents. She knows ALL of the kids at her school.
If your child has special needs, this is the school for you. The staff are excellent. They should all be rewarded for their work. They really work with the child and meet each child's needs. I can't put in to words the wonderful job this school does with children. It's the best in the district. I wish that my child could attend this school for 13 years.
