    People think they can't afford it, but Prairie gives financial aid based on your income. My kids couldn't go there without it! We're just average income people so we had to make changes to get the best education for them. We were totally surprised, and I still find it hard to believe, that parents, teachers, and everyone there helps raise money for financial aid for the families who need it! We've had teachers who cared about our kids like family. Like every school, Prairie has issues and improvements can be made. But, I liked it right away because it teaches what we teach our kids at home…respect others and be a problem solver. THANK YOU to those who suggested we just visit and apply! PLEASE don't assume you can't afford it. That's what we thought, too and we are definitely not the only people of average income there. I hope more families in the area just go see Prairie and apply!

    Prairie is an amazing school! I get asked all the time - is it worth it? Of course it is! I believe investing in my child’s education is the most important thing I can do. My child is excelling academically, making friends, learning life skills and truly growing into a respectful young person. Yes, it’s worth it and we are very pleased with our choice. It’s a financial stretch for us - but very much worth our investment! We made the absolute right choice.
    Many schools toss around the word "community" like it's a catchphrase within their walls — but at Prairie, people walk the walk. Faculty, students, parents, alumni, and coaches truly act and feel like one big family, and it's clear that the number one benefit of that atmosphere is the success experienced by Prairie kids, academic as well as personal. Small class sizes in the lower grades and small-group programs like Advisory in the middle and upper grades give kids additional support on top of their schoolwork, and allow faculty the opportunity to get to know the kids outside of class assignments. But don't be mistaken: support is different from coddling. Prairie students are encouraged to be self-sufficient, and the mantra of "knowing and valuing, supporting and challenging" each child really does happen here at every level.
