Half of my life holds memorable experiences here. Environment is extremely friendly and helpful to both students and faculty. Despite being small, it does not prevent learning as much as we can. I wish for more opportunities to learn about other cultures, as it resides in a primarily Caucasian area. Chances were to obtain about 2 international exchange students per year, if any at all. Sports were great aspects for families and the community, but other extracurricular activities and clubs were not as funded in comparison, such as theater, art, and band. Teachers and faculty have been here for generations and ensure children get a varied education regardless. Prairie was like having a second family with plenty of parents involved in activities and volunteer events. Although it is not well known, I will always know how much I have gained from this school and would love to revisit someday.

I like the small community feel of the school and the surrounding area. The teachers are amazing, fun, nice, and really want to help you. Everyone knows everyone and that can be a burden or a boon. I wish there were more opportunities for more variety of classes, but as it is, the teachers are stretching themselves thin, with the multiple classes they teach. Overall, I had a good experience.
When I first moved to Prairie High School, I was nervous about the new environment. As time progressed, the school, students, and community welcomed me and helpped me grow into a better student and individual. The school empraced my unique background and helped me improve on my week areas.
