Prairie Middle school isn't without its flaws. But it was overall a very good middle school experience. Not once have I had a teacher that didn't truly care about my education, and I had a good bond with almost all of them. Each teacher cared about every student, whether they were struggling or doing perfect. The community system was genius, they managed to divide their extremely large student population into community divisions. They then further divide the communities into teams of about 100 or so students. Teachers on your team have direct contact to one another so that they can coordinate and keep things less stressful such as homework load, and students stay with the same people year after year.

Prairie was an amazing middle school that got us as students very organized into groups that allowed us to be very comfortable in our own setting and students. The college readiness was pretty strong as seniors from Overland High School came in frequently and spoke to us about how important high school is and how it shapes your eligibility to get scholarships and get into college. The school also offered AVID, which was also very helpful in college prep. It is a very diverse school, which made students accepting to all types of cultures, languages, and religions.
It was a great school, filled with very lovely teachers and staff, who are always eager to help you with all sorts of problems. One thing that I would change are the regulations that you can't be in the hallways during lunch or anything like that. Plus, the cafeterias are kinda uncomfortable. There's no such thing as privacy. Other than that, it's fine!!!
