Experience Prairie View
This means helping your learner grow and reach his or her full potential in a safe, nurturing environment. Together with our strong parent community, we lead our students to take ownership of their learning while exploring their interests and finding new passions.
“We have been very impressed with Prairie View, especially the staff. All the teachers that we’ve encountered have been absolutely wonderful. They’re very invested in the students, and they do whatever they can to help them succeed. We feel like they truly care about the kids and really want them to succeed.”

The Core Values of our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) system focus on three character pillars – Be Safe, Be Responsible and Be Kind. All students work together with their classroom teachers and staff to embed these traits into our everyday learning at Prairie View Elementary School. The PBIS Program and the Responsive Classroom Program work hand in hand to develop our students into outstanding community members.
Prairie View and the PTO work collaboratively to enhance the educational environment for the students. The PTO sponsors events throughout the year to provide enrichment opportunities in the 4Cs (communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking) for all students. In addition, the PTO supports the STEM Education Program, the Outdoor Classroom, Guided Reading Centers, and various classroom activities throughout the year. There are three major fundraisers throughout the year including a Fall Booster-Thon, the school carnival, and Parents’ Night Out. We encourage our families to be involved in the Prairie View Community.
