Built in 1994, Prairie Park Elementary School replaced India and Kaw Valley schools. It sits on 15.4 acres of land on the southeast side of Lawrence near the nature preserve which includes several acres of natural prairie land. The school’s name comes from the subdivision and park located around the school. Prairie Park school serves 381 students in grades K-6. Beginning in Fall 2007, the school offers a full-day kindergarten program.
