Unfortunately have to agree with last opinion. New administration obviously sees no interest in advanced instruction and even that minimal level that existed from the past now is brought to the end. While teachers are very good and enthusiastic, they are probably bonded by unions on one side and by administration on the other. As a result mediocrity will rein. It's a pity...
School quality is declining under new principal (now in second year.) Availability of advanced instruction is negligible, and parents are obstructed from contributing meaningfully.
Really good middle school. My daughter had a rocky first year, but the teachers and counselor were supportive and available and things are going well this year. Especially like the availabilty of advanced classes. There is good coordination with the high school as well. My older daughter had an easy transition, and we feel that she has received an excellent education in the Castro Valley school system.
My daughter just graduated from Creekside (Class of 2012). She loved it! All her teachers were very nurturing and supportive. I also loved that I was always able to reach the staff in a timely manner. The counselors were very helpful in guiding my daughter not only with school matters but personal as well. Last, but definitely not least, Ms. Goldman (Vice Principal) ensures the safety of the campus with her strong leadership in working with students and parents in an efficient manner.
BEST. SCHOOL. EVER!!!!!! It really changed my life. The staff has people tthat will stay in your hearts forever and the campus is beautiful. Nobody would ever regret attending CREEKSIDE MIDDLE SCHOOL!
My daughter just finished her first year at Creekside. She had not had such a great year beforehand at her elementary school but CS was so much better. Many students come together from different schools and she made friends, enjoyed her teachers, did well in classes and gained much from the clubs and activities. I have to mention the fabulous counselors who mediate the many middle school relationships and teacher-student communication as well as being there any time my daughter needed someone to talk to. We will miss the principal as she retired at the end of the school year, but look forward to getting to know the new one. Looking forward to two more great years as a Wildcat family!
I love this school! It's a really good school 4 extracurricular activities too! :) Thank You, Creekside! Wildcats are so aws!
This is a great school with wonderful people. The kids are very nice so you have no trouble for making friends. The staff and principal are also very nice. I recommend this school to everyone. Go Wildcats!
This school is an awsome place for kids to go to. They are very well structered, organized and on task. You should bring your child here if you want a success in life....
The administration and teachers are on top of their game. They are connected and dedicated to the students.
Castro Valley schools offer many excellent choices of which you can't really go wrong provided you are an involved parent. My son is currently an 8th grader at Creekside Middle school and has thoroughly enjoyed his experience with all his teachers. Granted there may be 1 or 2 that he didn't consider his favorite, still he is the first to concede, valuable lessons were learned. He's been provided with a warm, nurturing and formal environment by his teachers where excellence is expected and help is at hand for those who want to excel.
Quality of academic programs -good Availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities -qaverage Level of parent involvement -min
This is an eccelent school. The extracurricular activities are great as are the staff and teachers. They offer a wide range of classes to fufill your childs need. They have a great counciling group. They are also very accademically advanced.
Creekside Is a wonderful envoirment for young growing minds. It several extracurrircular activities and that is not including it's huge vairety of sports. It is school for all people.
All of the Castro Valley Schools have incrediable parent involement. Our little community has strong bonds, our schools are the foundation. The programs and opportunities are boundless. Now with Measure B passing, we will have many important upgrades in our future.
We found Creekside to be a good experience for our child after a pleasurable and rewarding completion of Stanton Elementary. Class sizes were comparable and our child enjoyed and gained from her teachers at the 6th grade level.
