Dr. Coffman Delivers State of School Address

On February 2nd, before a packed Hilpert Room, Dr. Coffman took to the podium and delivered his 2017 State of the School address.

“People sometimes ask why Prairie exists,” he said to open his remarks.  “The school exists to build leaders. We’re building every kind of leader imaginable, and we’re committed to providing a well-rounded education that helps every student become his or her best self.”

During his hour-long remarks, Prairie’s Head of School recognized a number of faculty members doing outstanding work, highlighted several new programs, reviewed the school budget, discussed commendations and recommendations from the highly-successful ISACS re-accreditation visit last fall, and shared a number of strengths and areas for improvement.
