I believe there's a bullying problem starting up at this school and its getting swept under rug but as a concerned parent I will push to have this resolved.

My sons have done really well at sugar creek and hope to send my youngest son there in a couple of years. The teachers are wonderful and the principal is awesome.

Having moved from out of state recently, my daughter is new to this school and came in a few weeks after school started. She has transitioned beautifully due to the staff and teachers. They go above and beyond with teaching, support and caring for the students.

I really have nothing bad to say about this school. All 3 of my kids are getting a great education here and just love it. They love their teachers especially. Teachers are what make a good school shine and there are some really good ones here.

My son will have to leave this school because we are moving from the district but it is wonderful. The staff all remember me and who my son is, they are always helpful and kind to my child. The only complaint I would have would be that the car line is long.

My son began his kindergarten year at Sugar Creek this fall. We were hesitant because his older sibling is attending Central Park, for which there is no room for additional kindergarten students. But, my son has far exceeded the goals and wishes we had for him in school this year. He has a wonderful teacher who is kind and sincerely concerned about every student in the classroom. My son, who is a bright 5 year old, is being challenged at his level. He has fostered wonderful friendships in the classroom and comes home from school with a huge smile, eager to tell me about his day. I am thankful for Mrs. Badeen and Sugar Creek for giving my son a wonderful school experience!

My son was at sugar creek for his kindergarten year and it started out nice but ended up being a horrible experience!!! The teacher said that my nice needed speech which is fine. Well after a year in speech, I can not tell any difference at all in his speaking! I also spent a lot of time on him homework and activities, but, they were never sent back graded. They also limited parental involvement which made me mad as all get out. They would send home notes saying they needed help, but when ever I would respond, there wasn't any room. I am glad he won't be returning........

It's an ok building and it has a great playground but there's not much else to brag about. The teachers are cold and don't seem to like their jobs or the kids.
