I have went to prairie lea my whole life and have had a great experience here! since pre-k i have had the same people in my grade and now being a senior i realize how thankful i am for that because not all schools are like mine. although my school is small they have always made sure we had the same opportunities as bigger schools and that we were just as important as any student from any other school. being a smaller school we always have had a better connections with the teachers and administration at the school, it allowed us to see how much the actually care.

Growing up at Prairie Lea I.S.D. has been a pleasure. It is a small school close to my community and despite the poverty stricken area, the faculty and staff has managed to do the best for their students. Attending this school has been influential, inspiring, and an amazing experience altogether. It has provided me with the knowledge I need to be college ready and the students here are all supportive here. Since this is a small public school, students get to see each other regularly and have the opportunity to connect more so than they would in larger schools. Best of all, the staff here are supportive, understanding, and willing to do whatever they can for each and every student.
Prairie Lea school definitely can use improvements, for the students who actually choose to have a future such as college, jobs, or other types of education, it is possible to make these goals happen here. Resources can be found here and they can be useful. This school offers dual credit classes and it helps students get a head start which i find beneficial.
