I loved my daughters teach at this school. My Only issue was the principal, he allows the kids to fight with no consequences.... I took my daughter out of this school wish was walking distance from our home, I wish they'd replace the principal and regroup, we'd be back.

My daughter transferred to Laurel Creek 2/3 of the way through the school year. Her teacher was great and she adjusted quite nicely in her new school. I was pleased with her Kindergarten teacher and am looking forward to her starting first grade.

I have had nothing but excellent service in the office. The teachers are caring and respectful. Formative testing is every week and that really helps the class improve and focus on weak areas. The school has achieved the Distinguished School Award for the State of California. That means they must be doing something right. I do wish that the district would increase the nursing hours at each school site. The children need that extra help. Also, add back the music and PE programs. Our students need that extra that the music teacher and PE teacher gives.

Overall I am very happy with Laurel Creek Elementary. My son has had a great educationally experience. The teachers seems to really care about their students and make themselves available to parents whenever needed. Mr. Stockman (Principal), is willing to work with you and find the best fit for your child. We have a great PTA team that provide great social events for the kids. Other than that can't blame the school for the government's poor decision making skills (or lack thereof).

My two son's both have attended this school since last fall. We have been very impressed with it. Our youngest son struggled at an award winning school in Napa county last year, yet this year at Laurel Creek, his teacher Ms Storey is wonderful. She said he is doing wonderfully. We can't thank her enough for being such a great teacher to our son. I would recommend this elementary school to any parent looking to buy a home in the area. The neighborhood is great too.

I love this school, we moved from Sf and didnt know anyone, when i register my daughtersevryone was very friendly and helpful. I met her teacher which i loved! But for some reason after 2wks of teaching they transfer her to another school(dissapointed) met her new teacher, which didnt last long she also was transfer to another class...Finally the permanent teacher, she's really nice after teachers being replaced back and forth my daughter was still able to read and write and shes avery outgoing child, I believe her teacher had everything to do with this and im very thankful.. I would totally recommend this school...

I am not impressed by this school at all my daughter was placed in a classroom with 40 kids and two teachers and I don't see how this benefits any of these children I feel this is a racist school.

After reading all the great reviews on this school, I was shocked once I had enrolled my son, to meet some of the teachers here. On the very first day of school , I was informed that my son had ADHD, along with various other complaints, I felt like I was being bullied, to remove him from the school, I didn't and he managed to settle in, and get along with his teacher well, he even managed to get above average for his first review. When his teacher was changed half way through the year, I felt the same bullying to remove him, so spoke with the principal about it, and have seen the teacher react with negative results for my child. A happy go lucky boy, who was doing 'exceedingly well' is now below average and 'needs more improvement' to pass through to the next grade.

I have been extremely impressed with the my child's K, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade teachers. The instructors really take the time with your children and they encourage parents to be a part of the classroom. The PTA is awesome and the school fundraisers and functions are a blast! The front office is always kind and respectful. The school as a whole is both organized and conscious of safety which can be settling for any parent.

I am so happy we moved our child to this school! The teacher's are dedicated and invest the time to help the kids where ever they are struggling. They nuture but they also encourage independence. My son was struggling at his last school. Since moving him to Laurel Creek (& with the help of his teacher) he is right on track and even above grade level in some subjects! This is the only school where I have experienced being included in my son's activites. We are a 2 parent working family and taking time off work to attend functions is not easy for us. They have numerous functions in the late afternoons & evenings for those of us who work to encourage parental envolovment. This something no other school I know of does. We are extremely happy we moved our child to this school.

Laurel Creek has dedicated teachers and staff. There is no doubt that all staff members are there for the students and will work tirelessly to ensure the success of their students. However, the communication flow could work better and be more timely.

Laurel Creek is located in a solid neighborhood near Paradise Valley and excels because of the dedicated teachers, diverse population, and active parent involvement. We have nothing but praise for this school and feel it educated students in a safe environment. Just acquired 'California Distinguished School' status.
