I've been a substitute teacher here for K-4th and have been so impressed with the staff. It's an open and positive environment. The teachers support each other in creating a loving and academically rich school. Education is the priority! And parent involvement is welcome. Next year my children will transition here and I couldn't be happier.
Our family relocated from the Nashville, TN area to Bentonville, AR with our high functioning autistic son. If I had known how absolutely wonderful the school system was I would have moved years earlier. My son has improved from a first grade reading level to a fourth grade reading level in a mere 4 months! I credit this to the amazing special education teachers, therapists and staff. I believe the opportunity to have my son mainstreamed with access to the therapy room, and autistic class room have made a significant difference. I highly recommend Sugar Creek Elementary, the administration, teachers and special education team! Go Patriots!!
We are new to the NW Arkansas area, only being here for 6 months so far. My son has only been at Sugar Creek for for a little while but so far my husband and I are very impressed. We came from an area of the country where the public schools/county there had lots of money poured into them and a stellar reputation but funny enough, we never understood why. We had a lot of issues with that school and we were never impressed in the slightest. This school however has been great for our son. He transitioned to this school incredibly and always comes home happy and with a big smile on his face. The staff at this school are very polite and genuinely seem to care about you and your child. I have not personally had any interaction with the principal but I have heard of nothing but great things about him. My son's teachers are very involved in him and really do pay attention to him and what his strengths and weaknesses are academically. They keep the parents very well informed of what they are learning and other activities/field trips that are coming up.
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.
