An Award Winning School
Platte River academy is an award winning Middle School which offers a unique learning environment in which your child will be supported to become a well-rounded student and leader. PRA Middle School promotes character values and education and recognizes academic achievement and growth.
Middle school is an exciting time in the lives of our students as they delve deeper into topics in literature, language arts, history, science and math. Additionally, exciting and interesting electives and Specials are provided so that our students can expand in areas outside of the core subjects. Students learn independence balanced with academic and social support. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to ensuring our students’ success as they move on to high school and college.
Our middle school students further develop a strong foundation of character education centered around our four core values of respect, responsibility, compassion and integrity. PRA students learn what it means to be a part of a caring community and understand how a strong school environment and culture helps develop them as students and leaders.
We have created a special environment for our 6th grade students because we know this is a transitional time of life for students. The 6th grade is included in our Middle School programing in a hybrid model. PRA 6th grade students are included in our athletics program and are able to compete with local area charter schools. Additionally, 6th graders receive lockers and are given opportunities to visit these as a preparation for the passing periods found in our 7th and 8th grades. Sixth graders are also included in our adjusted dress code that includes additional dress of choice days and the ability to have specific untucked shirts.
