The Prairie School

4050 Lighthouse Dr, Racine, WI 53402

Prairie was established by area mothers Imogene Johnson and Willie Hilpert to fill a need for an independent college preparatory school in southeastern Wisconsin. Its name derives from the style of its buildings, which were designed by associates of Frank Lloyd Wright. In the primary and middle schools, academics and the fine arts are blended with opportunities for individually guided work. Leadership and team-building programs are part of the curriculum beginning in the primary grades. The upper school curriculum is accented by Advanced Placement courses and opportunities in the fine, creative and performing arts. During Prairie's two-week interim program, juniors and seniors may embark on a school-sponsored trip abroad or to the Grand Canyon (or another national park), or they may engage in a career internship with a local organization. Upper school pupils fulfill a 25-hour community service requirement each year.
