I have lived in Prue for 21 years. I worked at the school and it was not a bad place as some of you have put in your comments. Truth is you are making your statements based on hearsay. The teachers do there job to the best of their abilities and the food was good! The kids got plenty to eat! Furthermore it is a quite little town away from all the dangers of the bigger city schools out there.
I'm a former student of Prue Schools. I attended it my whole life. I graduated from there in 2007. Prue might be a small school but everyone knows everyone and everything. Not always a good thing lol. BUt I'm not ashamed to tell people where I graduated from and what school I went to. The environment there is awesome. The teachers help you out alot and they do care about you as a person. I had the nicest teachers there. When I got pregnant my senior year everyone supported me and helped me out. I think the teachers there should get paid more than they do. I thank them every chance i get because if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be where I am today.
I totally disagree with the last comment made. I currently have a student attending Prue Schools and I am also a teacher. I have observed positive changes. For instance, discipline issues are at a minimum. Administration and teachers are in the halls during class transfers to monitor behavior. Students are learning more because they are learning respect and the importance of an education. My nephew attends Tulsa Public and they have to go through metal detectors where gangs are a problem. I am proud to have my child attend Prue Schools and believe our school will grow and flourish. Parents that complain should consider starting a PTA and volunteering. As far a drawing a check, most teachers could certainly make more money in a different profession so I totally disagree with the person who made the last comment that 'most teachers are there just to draw a
As a former student of Prue Schools, I recieved what I believe to be as good of an education as a small school can provide. However, as a parnet of two children that also atteneded Prue Schools, I can say without a doubt, that over the years the school has slowly made an ever progressing turn for the worst. It seems that most of the teachers are there just to draw a check and could care less if the students recieve an education. As for the lunches, I know I wouldn't want to eat what they serve. Prue School used to be a really great school...I believe the problem rests in the administration.
Obviously the last two reviews came from administrators trying to make the system look better. Just read the reviews from former students or the parents of said students and you can see the lack of knowledge. Seroiusly...the food is what you are worried about? How about the huge drug problem, or the gangster type attitudes of teachers and administrators? Focus on the real issue of the sub-standard education your children are receiving at Prue. And for goodness sake use spell check!
I have graduated 2 children from Prue Schools & I have a 3rd child still in elementary. One has received a college degree and one is currently in her 3rd year at Tulsa University. My children were very prepared for college and received an excellent education at Prue Schools.
I am a former student at Prue School. They do play favorites and need better discipline. The people of the town run the school not the staff!
As a former teacher for Prue Public Schools, I have to agree that graduates of Prue Public Schools are far behind students from surrounding school systems.
I graduated from Prue, and I gave this school one star because it is the lowest I could give. The food is alright contrary to popular beliefe. The major problem is in the disipline at this school! When a young adlut does something wrong they are not always duely punished. Futhermore they don't have any insentives in place to push the students to reach higher in their learning. The teachers play favorits as well!
My children graduated from Prue. If I would have known how academically behind a straight A student would be for college I would have transferred them to another school. I witnessed intemidation between students and also witness faculty intimidate a student. I have witnessed students that have drug issues allowed to be leaders of the school. The attendance pollicy is enforced based on who the student is. I have seen good teachers get ran off because they voiced their opinions in making changes for the better only to be shot down and not rehired the next year. Changes needed immediately.
I am a Prue alumni and I work with a lot of people that graduated from big schools. My education at Prue is far from substandard. Getting a good education is the responsibility of the student and the student's parents. If the student doesn't apply their self then it doesn't matter what school you go to. The problem with some parents in these small communities is that they use public school as free child care. I had no problem with school lunch ever. What people do not understand is a small school has a small budget plus over 50% of the students are on reduced or free lunch. Do the math! Teachers are not babysitters they are tools for your student to use. Be a parent and make sure your student is applying his/herself. I think Prue does well with what they have to work with.
The quality of education for a small school like this one is no worse than any other school its same size. The quality of teachers here at Prue are some of the best in their professions in my opinion.
Prue schools are terrible. At Prue they don't challenge the students enough, and don't have many activities for the students to join. Here the food is awful, teachers arn't challenging, and I don't see how out children get an education. This school has no attendance policy and they don't call home is your kids arn't at school. They don't have a music or band class. The high school principle doesn't know how to deal with young adults. This school needs a lot of improvement.
The school is not terrible but it does have its issues. The principle of the high school for one is an elementary principle and not accustomed to dealing with young adults. The school lunches are a joke, such as today we had a burrito and milk, with the option of old salad that sets out for hours before the last of kids come through, or an undercooked pizza slice(by itslef of course) An 18yr old senior gets the same exact meal a 5yr old kindergartener does.
I've enjoyed my kid's education at Prue Schools. They have friends in other larger schools in the same grades as themself and my kids are ahead of them in their academics. The staff has always been great to talk to and we love the spirit of the prue Rockets !
This school has many problems. For one the citizens of this town pretty much run the high school. Many students do not get into trouble because the citizens will threaten them. The cafeteria food is very awful. There has been many occassion that I have recieved a spoiled milk, meat not cooked all the way,and not enough proportion. Thats what you get for free food.
