Welcome Back Prairie Hawks!

We are excited to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year. Prairie High School is built on strong traditions, and is known for its academic excellence, strong family support, and dedicated faculty and staff. The PHS administration, faculty, and staff are excited to welcome students, families, and community volunteers back into the building and make this the best year yet.

Prairie High School is connecting every moment to our theme of...


Productive - Healthy - Safe

Productive: We are encouraging all students to take part in activities and athletics. We know that students that are engaged and active in the their school have high rates of success.

Healthy: We encourage students to make healthy choices and keep their body and mind strong.

Safe: Be a good sport in and out of the classroom and on and off of the field, Prairie's tradition is built on hard work and dedication. #prairiepride

As we all work together to be PHS: Productive - Healthy - Safe the following are ways that families can support their student and their educational journey...

  • Make sure your student attends school daily and arrives on time, ready to learn
  • Ensure your student completes assignments and meets deadlines
  • Help your student manage their time
  • Encourage your student to take courses that build their experiences and love of learning
  • Ask your student about their day, so that you are aware of their school life

We are looking forward to an amazing 2021-2022 school year! We are PRAIRIE HAWKS!

Enjoy Every Moment!
