Prairie Hills Elementary School Reviews
Do not send your children to this school. I am saddened that this neighborhood school is run so poorly. The Principal acts disgruntled and is not approachable at all. She never even greets parents or students. The Admin team as a whole is non-responsive to issues that arise, regardless of whether the issues are academic or concerns regarding bullying. My child has had two teachers who were worse than incompetent, and very uncaring. The worst is that my child was seriously assaulted in the classroom, and the school buried it. The child who harmed my son was at school the next day. The Administrators pushed our family out of the school because we advocated for our son, the victim. I regret not transferring my child when we first had problems in first grade. We did so in order to not disrupt our child socially, but in retrospect, it was not worth his academics suffering and being hurt physically and emotionally on top of that. Many parents have moved their children after experiencing unresolved bullying problems, academics, disability discrimination etc. I hope that this review reaches out to parents out there, so that they don't have to suffer as our family has at the hands of this terrible school. Additionally, most parents in the community are not at all engaged in their children's education. They complain to each other, but don't make the time to complain to the proper authorities to try to help their children.
