The Indiana Department of Education announced on Friday, May 26, 2017 the 2015-16 list of Four Star Schools and Prairie Vista, along with eight other P-H-M schools, have earned that distinction--the most the District has ever had!
P-H-M's other Four Star Schools are Discovery, Horizon, Madison, Mary Frank, Meadow's Edge, Northpoint, Penn and Schmucker. Meadow's Edge made the list for the first time; Meadow’s Edge is one of P-H-M’s five Title 1 schools.
In 2015 Prairie Vista was named a National Blue Ribbon School (in the “Exemplary High Performing Schools” category), one of only 10 in the state and 335 in the nation. Previously in 1996, the U.S. Department of Education also named it a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. The IDOE has named Prairie Vista a Four Star School from 2010-2015.

To qualify as a Four Star School, a school must have received an “A” rating for the 2015-16 school year, tested at least 95% of students on ISTEP English/Language Arts and Math, and be in the top 25th percentile on ISTEP and ECA participation and passing rates. This list is based on 2015-16 school data. Click here to see the full list of criteria.
