As a parent I feel there is soooooo much lacking from Prairie View. The teachers yell at their students, and berate them in front of fellow classmates. When you being this to the principles attention he makes you feel like your wasting his time and that you are a big joke. He also give you the impression that it is probably you child not the teacher that is the problem. I feel I get no where with this school. Im a stay at home mother and put a lot of time and money into this school for the benifit of my child and feel that even this is not enough. Its like Im back in high school again. You are either in or your out when it comes to this school and the sad thing is you never know where you stand unless you are 24/7 brown nosing the principle and staff. If I could I would rip my kid out asap and put them in private school like westlake academy. good luck to those who have to send your kids to this school....maybe you will be one of the lucky ones.

my daughter just finished the 3rd grade @ Prairieview Elementary. This past year has been a bit conflicting with having to change teachers twice during the same year. We had some issues with bullying but brought it the principal's attention & it was dealt. Other than that, we've been pleased.

Since Sandy Conklin has joined the team the school atmosphere is positive. The teachers attitude is better and the kids adore him. Thank you Sandy Conklin and all the teachers :)

I was super impressed with the teachers at PVE. I think among the management they have a lack of communication..I constanstly was calling the admin building to get the communication there working. You just have to stay on them to keep the communication going..... Good job PVE Teachers......less than desirable Principal Mrs. Brown!

I have to tell you that I could not be happier with the level of education and attention my son is receiving at Prairie View. Keep up the good work!

I have just started my daughter in this school. She is in kindergarten, so I don't have much to base my opinion off of. But for the school year so far, I think the management hasn't done a very good job. The teachers seem very committed to their jobs and the children. But the principal and her staff seem completely overwhelmed with the growth. There seems to be no organization and the routine changes constantly. Which is very unsettling for a kindergarten student or any other child, not to mention the parents.

It is very sad but this school has yet to figure out what communication and organization is all about. If you or your child need this, you will not get it here. Makes me very sad that my child must attend this school since I cannot afford private school.

What an amazing school! The level of parent involvement is high, and there are many different programs for the kids. There is a regular family fun night each month. Every program is the latest and greatest available. The teachers are kind, involved, and caring. Sports, Music, Reading enrichments, and more. The student teacher ratio is about 20 kids in each class. It is a growing district and every time the classes get full they hire a new teacher for that grade. There are several new schools to be built in the next few years. The district has lots of money and it goes to the schools.

The expression of patriotism every morning is just great. They have the children really involved as they stand at attention. I am very happy that they even sign patriotic songs. Also the thoughts for the day set to a different theme every month such as kindness.
