Prairie View Adolescent School
(316) 283-2400
Newton, Kansas
Director: Jerri Stucky

The following was sent to Woodbury Reports by the School Director.

"Prairie View Adolescent School is a state accredited special purpose school for adolescents with severe behavior or emotional problems. The school is located on the Prairie View campus. The campus consists of a school, psychiatric hospital, partial hospital, community mental health center, outpatient offices, and other buildings that house ancillary services such as Industrial Therapy, Art Therapy, and physical activities. It is located on 70 acres on the edge of Newton, 20 minutes from Wichita, Kansas. Prairie View is a nonprofit private organization founded in 1954.

Two important concepts under gird the Prairie View Treatment philosophy. They are: (1) the concept that every person is responsible for his or her own behavior, and (2) the concept that a caring meaningful community can promote healing. Treatment is always oriented toward return to the outside world and regular schools, with better living and coping skills with a higher likelihood of success."
