    This will be my child's 4th year at Prass and I couldn't be happier with the staff and school itself. The principle Mrs.Dupler is outside each morning to welcome the children along with other teachers. The parents at the school are very involved!

    My daughter has been at Prass since K. She is now in third grade. We love this school! The teachers are great and very helpful. The new principal Mrs. Dupler is very good. She always has time for parents and students. The art teacher is wonderful and he has taught my daughter so many things. The office staff are friendly. The only negative I have found is that the PTA can be kind of hard to get involved in at first. I am going to be sad to leave this school next year due to relocation.

    Prass is an excellent school with a inspiring principle dedicated teachers involved parents and eager to learn students. As a parent I did my research and took advantage of the district's open enrollment.
