    "All three of my now adult children attended this school, and some of the teachers are still there teaching and inspiring. Some still in touch. The teachers are compassionate, caring, and involved in their students' education. The parent involvement from what I understand remains strong. All great foundations for success. Reading the last review - I must comment, this is not pre-school and it is not jail. The mission is to raise critical thinkers! If no one's home, go the neighbor's. There are a lot of "what ifs" in life. The key is to problem solve for a good outcome. Your problems, being late for pick up, should not become the school's, they are there to EDUCATE your child, not babysit them - teach your children well. The field trip issue, I would agree is somewhat concerning, but they recognized the problem and resolved it with a positive outcome. I bet you can't tell me you've never made a mistake. I loved this school, and the staff and would not hesitate for a moment to recommend it to anyone. Lastly my children were so prepared for life and are very successful in their professions, and I attribute that to all the Dist. 203 schools. Past Happy Parent A.D."

    "My kids have been in this school for two years, and there have been a couple of really troubling issues. Most recently, the school sent one of them on a field trip they weren't signed up for--so they weren't on the list. What if they'd been left behind. Another problem this school has is the drop-off and pick-up procedure. The kids are dropped off and left outside until the bell rings. Then even the kindergarteners are just let out of the door when the bell rings; anyone could be there to take them, and there's no safety procedure in place. What if a parent were in an accident, and the kindergartener starts walking home alone? They should allow the kids to go inside when they arrive, and for at least the kindergarteners, there should be an early dismissal or some other procedure in place. This school has some serious safety issues as far as I'm concerned."

    "I would give anything to be part of Prarie again. My children are ahead of most kids at there new school. It was very challenging for our children and that helped them to challenge themselves. I love Prarie!"
