    Prairie Heights is an excellent school with caring administration and great teachers. My daughter has attended K-3rd grade there. We are relocating to another state and I hope her new school is as great as Heights!

    As a parent of two children who have attended to different elementry schools in the eastern Iowa area. Prairie Heights elementry is the most proactive schools we have found the administration and educators have given our children more opportunities for a great education than any other school we had researched. 'It is world class'

    I am an educator who does not work in the College Community School District I have found Prairie Heights to be outstanding. The teachers are highly qualified and the atmosphere is a very caring and nutturing one. The district is very helpful and the organization is impeccable. I would recommend it as one of the top schools and districts in linn county.
