    The Prairie School is the best option for high school education in the Racine area. As a recent alumna currently attending college, I can say with confidence that Prairie prepared me for college, granting me an advantage over my current collegiate classmates. Though I only attended Prairie for grades 9-12, I attribute a majority of the growth in mind and spirit that I underwent during those years to my school. Teachers not only taught me rigorous course material, but also showed me how to be a good member of the community and be a better version of myself. The vast array of extracurriculars allowed me to explore different sides of my intellectual and emotional self. In all, Prairie offers a well-rounded experience for students which encourages them to grow as intellectuals, individuals, and members of a greater community. Though expensive, this school is worth every penny.

    There is such an incredible community at The Prairie School from the students, to the teachers, to the parents, it seems everyone gets involved, and I'm proud to have been given the chance to attend high school there.

    I fondly remember the commitment of Harold Swanson who was the head tennis coach since 1970. Even on Thanksgiving Day, Mr. Swanson would come in to the athletic center and hold a morning hitting session for anyone who was interested. It was total dedication to the students, and I will never forget that.
    We transferred my son to The Prairie School in Elementary School after he experienced some challenges at another school in the area. After extensive research, we enrolled him at Prairie mid year. The teacher, staff, and students embraced him with open arms. He quickly began to shift his opinion of school. He received individual attention to overcome his reading challenges and now excels throughout all subjects. He has become a well rounded child that loves school and participates in many diverse activities including sports and the arts. We have had nothing but excellent experiences throughout the school. The environment is one of developing all aspects of the child. The curriculum is challenging and keeps him engaged while peaking his interests and curiosity. For our family, The Prairie School has been an answered prayer and is the only choice for education in our family.
