Welcome

What does it mean to be part of Prairie?

It means learning and thriving in a community without preconceived notions of who you ought to be, but has great expectations of what you can do.

It means enabling students to discover their passions while fostering a love of learning and the desire to know more. It means taking advantage of unique and ever-evolving opportunities – discovering the intricacies of glass blowing; writing poetry and competing at the national level; participating on state-championship athletic teams where no-cut policies allow for growth and exploration; and demonstrating leadership through activities like stream and water testing in third grade, or directing and starring in one-act performances in Upper School.

It means being inspired by a faculty that is passionate about a growth mindset, both for themselves and their students. It is creating and collaborating in a classroom where students are known, valued, supported, and challenged.

It means that we are all in this together – students, families, and faculty – to construct a limitless learning environment for each and every child.

We can tell you so much more about what sets Prairie apart, but we invite you to come to campus and experience it all for yourself. It will be the visit that changes your child’s life.

Meet Molly!

What kind of impact have you seen Prairie have on kids? At Prairie, each student is encouraged to stretch themselves every single day.  Whether it’s shark dissection in 1st grade, 7th grade students traveling to Hannibal, Missouri to explore caves that inspired Tom Sawyer, or analyzing the language of melodic composition in AP Music Theory, our students are provided with endless opportunities to think both critically and creatively.

Meet Callie!

What is your favorite thing about introducing new people to Prairie? There is usually a moment when a family member sees something that ignites a spark in their spirit — a student imagining themselves at a pottery wheel in the art room, a mother watching the creativity and innovation on display during a robotics demonstration. When I see that light come on, I know Prairie could be the place they call home.
