    "I am a former student of P.R.H.S. & I can say without a doubt that this is one of the best schools in the area. I graduated from P.R.H.S. in 2004 and went on to graduate from Illinois State University with a teaching degree. The academics, atmosphere, athletics, students here gave me some of the greatest experiences of my life and I will always be grateful for that."

    "Prairie ridge offers a large amount of classes and I urge you to take a look at them they do offer honor and ap classes but they are hard to come by unless you have been set up with honors classes your entire life. I am not happy, no one cares about the student who wants more challenging classes and they make it extremely hard and frustrating to get into those classes it is not a good school for getting into America's best rated colleges and gives students a very limited educational experience. Prairie ridge is a good school I'll give it that, but academically it does not excel in. If your student wants a higher education you will not find it here, but the football team is good."

    "This is the 2nd year in a row they have class room sizes for my child that are higher than stated to expect. When my child started Kindergarten they had dropped a class due to enrollment - but then due to 'last minute additions' the class size jumped from 18 to 22 and ultimately as 23 children to a single teacher for the formative Kindergarten year. The same excuse given this year, except my child starting as 1 of 24 students for 1st Grade. Prairie Grove has been highly rated for previous years, but this would be the start of a trend that could absolutely bode poorly for the future performance of students going through this school where classes are so large for these younger years. I understand classes of this size and a little larger for 4th or so an up - but not for kids that are 5yrs to 7yrs. Very concerned as feel very strongly my child was disadvantaged vs. friends of mine with children who had less than 15 kinds in their public school K and1st grade classrooms. To add to this, they allow very limited parental involvement in the school and even that is by lottery. This also contributes to current concerns with the longer term tend trend."

    "My two children graduated from Prairie Ridge. The school has an excellent curriculum for college bound students with many Honors and Advanced Placement classes. One of my children was able to accumulate 54 hours of college credit by taking advantage of the AP program and writing nine exams during his junior and senior years. The academic environment is very challenging at the Honors level and provides an excellent foundation for the rigor to be expected when a student moves on to the college level. This strong educational foundation allowed both children to earn technical (finance and engineering) degrees at top universities in four years or less Prairie Ridge has a fine staff, strong leadership, wide ranging extra curricular programs and top notch academics. It has everything the college bound student needs to be successful."
