Buy a Brick. Build a School.

Welcome to our new school!

Palouse Prairie Charter School opened the 2019-2020 school year in our new, custom-built school building, situated on 3.25 acres of land, just off Palouse River Drive in Moscow.  After operating for ten years from a converted furniture building, students and teachers are enjoying natural light, energy-efficient classrooms, beautiful views of the Palouse, and room to play outside. With more space, Palouse Prairie can now grow to our full enrollment size of 216 students.

Our school now has a spacious multi-purpose room with a top notch climbing wall, plenty of outdoor space for gardens and playgrounds, 21st century learning equipment, including Smart Boards in each room, and state-of-the-art safety features.

History of our school

Palouse Prairie Charter School (PPCS) opened in 2009 with 68 students in grades Kindergarten – 5th.  In makeshift classrooms in a converted furniture store, we built a vibrant and nurturing educational community, a place where students think critically, inquire for themselves, and push courageously to try new things. Since those early days, we have added a thriving middle school (grades 6-8) and built a unique Adventure Program that gives every student deep experiences in the outdoors. Even with so little in material resources, PPCS has consistently outperformed our neighboring school district and has become one of the highest performing charter schools in Idaho.

Campus Upgrades

Our highest immediate priority is a unique nature-based playground and other recreational structures such as basketball and four-square courts. We will be conducting native plantings and building gardens in the spring. ​
