Prentice Elementary School offers a variety of learning experiences for students to develop their physical, emotional, social, and intellectual needs. The Student Achievement Guarantee in Education Program (S.A.G.E.) has allowed us to lower the pupil-to-staff ratio to 15:1 in grades K-3. In these classrooms, S.A.G.E. teachers take pupils to other classrooms for instruction. Smaller class sizes allow the teachers to provide more individual attention to our students in math, reading, and language arts.
Prentice Middle School is a 5th-Grade through 8th-Grade campus connected with Prentice Elementary and Prentice High School. We encourage students at the Middle School to be active participants in our community. The classrooms at the middle school are relatively self-contained, but some classroom-to-classroom movement helps students prepare for their upcoming high school experiences. 8th-Grade students not only have their core subjects, but they can also take Explore, Industrial Arts, Creative Living, Keyboarding, and Spanish courses, each lasting for 12-week periods. 7th- and 8th-Grade students can also engage in band and/or chorus to grow and showcase their musical talents. All middle school students can become involved with student council. Student Council meets monthly to help plan events in our school and to engage in many community endeavors.
Prentice High School is a 9th grade through 12th grade campus. Students at PHS are encouraged to be active participants in the wide variety of courses and activities offered. In addition our strong core programs, some electives include: Introduction to Industrial Arts, Creative Living, Keyboarding, Spanish. Additionally, advanced placement and dual-credit courses in English, Science, Math, Social Studies, Technology Education, and the Fine Arts are offered to help students earn college credits while in high school.
Since 2008, PHS has been involved with Project Lead the Way, which allows students to participate in courses in advanced industrial engineering, science, technology, and mathematics.
In addition to School-To-Work flexibility, Distance Learning courses are also offered at the high school level. There are many different selections for Distance Learning courses, including but not limited to Computer Programming and Technical Mathematics.
All high school students can become involved with student council. Student Council meets monthly to help plan events in our school and to engage in various community endeavors. Here at PHS, we seek to provide the best learning opportunities that prepare students for their journeys ahead.
