Letter From the Principal:
We are excited to work with families who chose to do some or all of their children’s education from home. At Five Mile Prairie we work closely with parents to provide quality educational opportunities and resources for those families. Our mission is to collaborate with parents to customize a child’s education in order to prepare students for life’s responsibilities, challenges and opportunities.
We actively partner with parents to provide a quality, academic challenging, safe, and supportive learning environment, while recognizing parental authority to the educational direction of their students. We are proud of our staff and their commitment to students to meet each individual child’s needs.
We operate under the authority of the State of Washington and the laws pursuant to an alternative learning experience (ALE, WAC 392-121-182). Five Mile Prairie is a school that takes its responsibility for helping students reach their learning goals and objectives very seriously.
Our Family Handbook is provided to you in an effort to answer some of your questions and provide information on the operation of our school. However, if you have additional questions or feel your questions were not fully answered please call us a 509-465-7700. We look forward to working with you and your child.
Bruce Olgard, Principal
