Middle School (Gr. 5-8)

A strong athletic program is about more than winning awards.  Prairie students learn the value of a healthy lifestyle and begin to develop the proper habits of being “fit for life”. We offer numerous interscholastic options with a full-participation, no-cut policy.  Young athletes learn to develop their full potential and use their skills to achieve their own personal best.  We offer the following athletic opportunities for students in grades 5-8.
