Testimonials from Students, Teachers, Parents & Alumni
Artist in Residence, Class of 1973
"I like the little things at Prairie. It is and always has been about the kids. I like when the little wee wogs knock on the dining room windows to see what is new. It is always fun and informative when I talk to them about what I am up to. In return, they share their opinions about my work, and I couldn’t be more appreciative."

"My Prairie experience prepared me for college, which in turn prepared me for my career. As a writer, I learned the foundation of putting together a solid story in the Prairie classrooms. And while I dreaded our yearly research papers, I still utilize the skills I learned from that writing and researching process today."
"I am amazed by the courteous, professional manner of the faculty members, impressed by the behavior of the students, and pleased with the high expectations set for all."
