Prairie had a nice, helpful staff but lacked diversity and community involvement. I would have like to have seen more outreach programs and volunteer opportunities made available to students. I would have also liked to have seen more college preparedness and life-skills in the context of courses and student advisors including: financial responsibilities of student loans and credit cards, how to apply to FAFSA, how to search for and receive scholarships, college entrance exam courses and exploration of college alternatives. Head-start program was excellent! Although, I couldn't get into the program because of poor math performance, which I believe could have a alleviated by more support in the form of school or faculity tutors.

Prairie High School was is an amazing school! The staff there are always ready to help their students be successful in education, careers, and even personal lives. The students are smart, outgoing people ready to find and pursue their dreams!
I really liked this school when I attended. I went to Prairie my Freshman, Sophomore, and Senior year. Throughout these years the teachers were the best! If I ever needed help they were always there. When I had to leave in the middle of Sophomore year, it was really sad for me cause I was really gonna miss this school. That's why I came back my Senior year.
