    My children are in 4th and 5th grade this year and have both attended this school since Kindergarten. I did school choice to get my children in at Prine and have spent may hours commuting to get them to and from school. WORTH EVERY MINUTE AND MILE. My children have been on honor roll every quarter and excel in everything that they do. I believe it is due to the dedication and passion of each and every teacher and administrator that attributes to that. I love Prine and wouldn't dream of my children being anywhere else. The only thing that I would change is that more parents should put more time in with their children. PTO meetings have been known to have only 4-10 parents show up......there were 800 students last year. Parents have to get involved.

    i guess all the talk about bulling at schools is all talk and no action.

    My son is special needs and has been attending Prine since the age of 3. He has excelled in three years of Pre-K with Ms. Wendy West and her wonderful team. He is going to start Kindergarten and I wouldn't think of any other school They are very competent and I have no problems. Even though we don't live it Prine's school district I submitted a hardship so my daughter could also attend. She will be in 2nd grade and I am so pleased with her progress. PRINE ROCKS!

    My daughter has just begun kindergarten at Prine Elementary. The teachers and staff are all very friendly and helpful. I am very impressed at the lengths the school takes everyday to ensure the safety of each child coming to and from school.

    We lived in Bradenton for about 7 years and all three of my kids attended Prine and the teachers are great the academics are great my kids still keep in touch with friends down there as we are in a different state now up North. They just loved visiting the old school as the new one was being built and seeing thier old teachers and the office people(one in particular) remembered each one of the kids(all 4 of them) We were very happy with the school can't wait to see the inside of the new school!

    Prine is a wonderful school. There are many incentives to help children get better grades and the teachers are wonderful.
