Our Outdoor Classroom

At Prairie Crossing Charter School, our students use the indoors and the outdoors as one large classroom. We strive to nurture a generation of youth who can lead us toward a future in which caring for our earth is innate and essential, and spending time outdoors is a critical component of this vision.

Nestled in native prairie lands.


           Located in a nationally acclaimed
                  conservation community.


            Surrounded by a landscape of
              lakes, ponds, and wetlands.



     Developing our very own
Sustainable Schoolyard, with a goal of including a greenhouse with an 

aquaponics system,
45 raised beds (18 with cold frames
and 3 ADA compliant raised beds),
a fruit orchard, and an
outdoor learning area. 


We believe that children are our best hope to improve the world.
