I have one child who is very shy and another who is special needs. My shy one has been treated like family at Pearl Creek and is blossoming there. Her teacher this year was a BP teacher award winner, one of the best in the state! He has been instrumental in getting her to raise her hand and speak up more. I am also SO thankful for the faculty and staff at Pearl Creek who are dedicated to helping my special needs child learn the best way possible for him. They quickly take the initiative with any concerns I have for his safety and learning. They worked side by side with me as we came up with an effective strategy for my son to learn to the best of his abilities. I am in total awe of how much the staff here puts in to helping each and every student! On top of the wonderful teachers, the parents are very active and involved with school festivals, plays, the ice rink and garden. We love Pearl Creek!
Excellent school! This school loves parent involvement. They have great field trips. Offer multi-age classes. Faculty involvement with students are remarkable. Library is wonderful. Offer band and orchestra in 4th grade and above. The students are multicultural and are big on 'No Bully' campaigns. No foreign language currently being offered but PTA is working on this subject. Your child would have a great opportunity to get one of the best educations if attending here.
I've got three kids in this school and will have four attending next year. Pearl Creek far exceeds the private school I had my kids attend prior to enrolling them at Pearl Creek. The staff and teachers are absolutely outstanding and quality extra-curricular activities abound in part due to a healthy PTA organization that serves the school. The current Principal is second to none, which inn itself gives the school a leg up when compared to others.
The only reason for the 4 in extra curricular activities is that the district budget has been slashed. The school does wonders with what it has. The principal, parents and other staff are wonderful, but the teachers are so outstanding they deserved to be recognized as the highest score. My children have attended the school for 6 years, all grade levels now, and I have never had reason to complain. Class sizes are managable (would love to see slighly smaller, but with district's budget cuts, that won't happen). Although this is not a very racially or economically diverse school (white, middle class is the norm), they do teach tolerance and appreciation of all others. My kids have been in the single grade classes as well as multiage classes, and neither was better than the other - they just suit different personalities and I have been very happy with the placement of each child - the school seems to have done a wonderful job of finding the right class for each child.
