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 provided me an outstanding high school experience. I was able to balance being a multiple sport athlete while achieving good grades. The Girls Basketball team provided me a safe community group where I could grow as a student and an athlete. There were tons of clubs and activities along with life changing teachers. To this day, I still think about my teachers and how they impacted my life and helped me grow. I wouldn't be who I am today if I hadn't attend Prairie High School. The culture of the school is well maintained. They provide a healthy culture that encourage's student athletes and college readiness.
Prairie is a low-key school that consists of decent people. I'd say the Academics are above average, but they do not prepare you enough for college. The teachers are great! Prairie boys' sports are not very great. Graduated in 2016, I loved it!
