Students attending Prairie View experience academic and social learning. The academic structure at Prairie View includes all content areas (math, science, language arts, and social studies). Along with all Goshen Community Schools, Prairie View emphasizes literacy and math and provides additional resources that help students succeed.
Literacy Collaborative is our language arts framework and consists of language and word study, reading workshop, and writing workshop. There are a number of teaching and learning structures and curriculum components for each. Each student is met at their level and receives instruction in individual, small group, and large group settings.
Math Expressions, our math framework, helps students develop powerful ways of reasoning and thinking about mathematics while learning the algorithms.
All English as a New Language (ENL) students at Prairie View receive support and encouragement from the ENL teacher on staff. New ENL students are tested, and once their level is established they are placed in the normal classroom and experience all opportunities provided to every student enrolled.
Prairie View recognizes the importance of open communication among staff, parents, students, and the community. For this reason, many of our programs and educators maintain websites to keep parents and community members informed about what’s going on at Prairie View and what supplies students will need.
Prairie View offers different opportunities for students who may need extra time and support in academic areas or structured time to do homework.
The Prairie View PTO consists of parents and staff from Prairie View Elementary. They meet regularly on the second Monday of each month at 5:00 PM throughout the school year. Meetings are held in the LGI room.
Goshen Community Schools uses Follett Destiny Software to manage the district media centers resources. Students can use the destiny website to research what literature and media resources are available for all there classroom research needs.
