The rating of this school is unfair in a way but it is also slightly true. The high school courses could be a bit more challenging but in my opinion PRHS is culturaly better than red cloud. At least the teachers TEACH the Lakota ways instead of tring to force christianity into a students schedule of learning. And Red Cloud is obviosly a privatly funded school, I'm even surprised to know that that school could have all the essential parts of learning effecently...

This school is unsatisfactory. The children are not learning what they need to learn. Red CLoud kids have computer, and activities and our children play with crayons. We are still waiting for the backpacks that were promised us. My daughter complains that the school is loud and unorganized. I love the Ridge but thus school needs help. If I could afford to put her in Red CLoud I would I can not afford transportation to and from and we are not district for that school. Hopefully we will get some of the federal funding that is going around. If you have a choice do not put your kids here. Pilamaya

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
