Dow's Prairie Elementary School Reviews
both my son and daughter have went to this school along with lots of my family and friends children it is a wonderful school with great teachers..we love the office ladies
This schoold is BY FAR the worst i have ever seen in my life! My Son went there for 2 years, the WORST 2 years of his life. The teachers have been reported to swear in front of the children. One teacher, Mrs.Cox, has laid her hands on my child, leaving marks on his arm.
My son went to this school ad now my daughter attends. I have been very impressed with the teachers at this school and would reccoment it to any parent.
