Visit Day: Experience Life as a TPS Student
If you and your child loved what you saw during your campus tour, the next step is to experience a true day in the life of a Prairie School student.
Students interested in 1st through 12th grade have the opportunity to visit campus for a regular school day where we'll try to pair them with a student who has similar interests. They will go to class, participate in learning, make some awesome art, get sweaty in gym – all of it!
If your son or daughter has a friend at Prairie who they'd like to spend their visit with, we will certainly take that into consideration as well!
Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten...at The Prairie School!
Maybe it's the awesome recesses on the Prairie playground. Or gym with Mr. Schafer or music with Mr. O. Maybe it's the nature unit or the space unit or the robotics unit. Maybe it's the Puff Ball Parties or Pajama Days. Maybe it's the learning to read. Or the pumpkin farm field trip. Or making their own lava lamps. Truth is, it's tough to pick the most awesome part of Kindergarten here at Prairie. We just know there's a whole lot to love.
