Open Quote Prairie Crossing is an excellent experience that can't be found at the other local district schools. The outdoor learning experiences, organic farm, unique environmental curriculum, and close-knit family of faculty & students was something we were so grateful that our child was able to experience for 9 wonderful years (K through 8 grade). She has blossomed into the creative, caring, intellectual, young woman that she is today because of those early years at PCCS.

PCCS critics can be angry, jealous, and try to shut it down, but those of us who have had the wonderful experience of having our children attend PCCS know what a special gem among schools that it is. Close Quote

Open Quote PCCS does not have a school bus. Driving your kids to this school is not worth it. There are some lazy teachers at PCCS. So we recently moved our son to our public school. The main reason is that some teachers do not communicate or respond to your emails which impacts students and their grades. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
