Sugar Creek Elementary School5

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.
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!
