Prairieville middle school is an amazing school and has great teachers. The teachers are not mean but are sometimes strict but that helps us focus better to where we can learn. This is a great school for children to go to and I recommend it.

This is my 3rd year at Prairieville Middle School, and I have loved every year! I have amazing teachers who help me whenever I need it, and great classmates. I know the lunches aren't likable, but that's not going to keep you from learning. Overall, Great teachers, great scores, great students, GREAT SCHOOL!

Teachers are mean. Students are treated like prison inmates. Administrators do not respect parents. Do not send your child to this school
