I totally agree with other reviews about the principal. When you want to meet Mr.Grasso with all your concern, he's gonna close his ears. There are kids who bully other kids but their parents hardly get notice about their kids's behavior. Teachers just expect them to be OK and do not see their behavior. I left the school 2years ago and I think I made a great decision. So happy that my kids are now in far much better educational and social school enviroment!!!

This School Is Excellent in every manner. All teachers are very good and they always encourage kids to excel in academics, music, sports, arts and technology. There are wonderful events throughout the year. Teachers and principal put their 100% efforts to make this school the best and as a parent we should encourage our kids to learn the best from this school. Oak Creek Wise Owl Rocks!

I will give 10 rating for this school, as in last 2 years I have seen drastic change in this school. My kids are in GATE programme and are doing excellent in their studies, sports, music and the credit goes to all very hard working, dedicated teachers as well as school principal whom kids love and respect alot. I will say if this school gets support of more parent volunteers then Oak Creek Elementary will be one of the best schools in Orange County.

My son is finishing second grade at Oak Creek, and I am so happy I transferred him here! He has had dramatic growth in his learning this year and I couldn't be more pleased.

This school is horrible. Do not send your child to this school if you want results. There are teachers at this school that do not care about the students. Alot of the staff are biased when it comes to treating all of the students in a fair manner. This school is horrible. You will not get the results that you want from a school if you send your child here.

Oak Creek is a superb school. From what I have observed, the principal is a wonderful example of what a leader should be. The office staff is intelligent and helpful. We had an amazing, amazing first grade teacher. She was more than you could ever hope for in a teacher. She showed wonderful caring and respect for each parent and child. There are so many excellent things at this school -and you won't even know about all of them until you attend. It's amazing. Parents, just remember to appreciate your school. Every school has places where it can improve. The important thing is to always remember is to be a helpful support, no matter what the situation. All of the parents that I have met there have been intelligent and care deeply for their children. We love you Oak Creek!!

I can't tell you how disappointed I am with Oak Creek. Ever since the new principal began the school has gone down hill at such an alarming and rapid pace. He has eliminated vital school reading programs and ignored the concerns many parents. Concerns and conversations with the principal are disappointing at best. He tells you what you want to hear but his actions are few to non existent. Classes are packed to capacity and have so many children behavioral problems. The teachers are forced to spend so much of their time redirecting misbehaving children. They have great teachers but the teachers can only do so much with such poor leadership. It is incredibly frustrating to be across the street from your school and not want to attend it.

This school has fallen short of our expectations. The principal has carved out the GATE program and does not address the needs of children bored in the classroom or having to deal with so many children with behavioral problems. Four, five and sometimes 6 kids with behavioral issues in a classroom is NOT acceptable and not fair to the kids who come to school to learn. The new principal does not address this rather, ignores it. There is more emphasis on special ed programs than kids who are over achieving as there is NO program for them. They get to sit bored in the rooms, frustrated with ill behaved kids with issues.

This school fails many of its students. It is fine for average or just above average kids. However, if your child is on either end of the spectrum, the child's needs are not met. The principal refuses to address parent concerns; he does everything his way whether anyone else in the world agrees or not. Other administration members are just as bad or worse. One thing positive I can say is that the teachers care and do try their best with what they are given.

Completed our final year with Oak Creek (6th grade) and overall was a very positive year for our son. Mrs. Holey was his teacher. She was actively involved in the kids learning experience and in the parent meetings at the beginning of the school year she said her job was to "get the kids ready for middle school". In my opinion she exceeded that goal. Mrs. Holey has since left this school and they have lost a quality teacher. In addition, the principal who was not very pro-active also has left. The negative about the school is the teachers should be required to update the grades and homework assignments online and on a daily basis so parents can have an opportunity to be actively involved with the students performance good or bad. (4th-6th grade only). Teachers here are very bad at entering and updating homework assignments and test scores to the school website. Our son has since gone into middle school and they do a fabulous job with keeping parents updated and informed on the (parent portal) website of the school.

I am disappointed in learning today that Oak Creek is NOT allowing the children to exchange candy treats with school friends; noted because of allergies & state/district wellness policies. A friendly reminder to all parents- warning not to bring certain foods would be accepted. But to not bring any candy treats at all- is not a sweet decision! I personally feel is a bit extreme. Perhaps the "state/district" should consider prohibiting the schools from selling fundraiser candy or having Nacho day to raise money. That's not healthy!

My kids have been at Oak Creek since it opened. The education is excellent, so far the staff has been good. Both the principal and the staff volunteer to help with traffic control, which is a big issue at this small school. There have been a few car accidents and I caution care when crossing the street when it' s busy. I actively volunteer in classroom and there are many parents who volunteer in the class and the school which is a big help. If your child is falling behind you will need to help them because the teachers don't assist any further than teaching the lesson. On a negative note, there does some to be preferences given to parents who hold PTA positions, and the front office clerks aren't very friendly.

I'm really happy to have my son at the school. Mrs. Geddes does a wonderful job in the classroom. Although, the class size is larger than I would like it to be. I realize the financial environment we live in. Parent involvement is wonderful and the organized activities build a stronger community.

I am extremely pleased with the level of education my child is receiving at Oak Creek. Both by husband and I are products of a private education. We thought we would do the same for our children. However, upon moving to Oak Creek, we heard many people saying that they pulled their children from a private school and enrolled them at Oak Creek where they have received a better education. We thought we should give it a try. I have been extremely inpressed with the education and personal enrichment my child has recieved. Yes, there is a lot of homework but homework is good for kids and parents! There are also many activities for the parents and children to bring the school community together on a social level. The princal has a open door policy and will address any concerns you have. This is a top notch public school!!

Oak Creek is a good school. Parents should be aware that it is very progressive and moves very fast. They expect a lot from the children and the homework and grading is sometimes extreme.

I would rat ethis school with complete satisfactory. Parents does contribute and help a lot on both studies and extracurricular activities. Teachers are at satisfactory level. School has safe enviornment. Principal may need to improve the sudies level from classes 2nd and above.

I'm not surprised. There's a sense of entitlement in the air right when you walk to the front office. Brought food once for the staff luncheon and the staff at the front desk never said thank you. A smile would suffice but I guess it's too much to ask. The flow of traffic to the school was very well regulated because of the staggered bell schedule in the morning. When Mrs' Berumen took over as principal, she changed the time to 8:00 for all grades and that made it so difficult to get there. It's like a zoo in the morning. I worries me when my child walks to school and see all these cars driving faster and ignoring the stop signs. I'm sure she knows about it but doubt that she'll change it. Indeed, a lot of excellent teachers in this school but believe they are mismanaged.

My child is in Kindergarten and we are very happy with our teacher, Mrs. Renden. However, I am not happy with the Principal as she doesn't seem to be involved with the school. The last time she posted her own newsletter was back in October! I think she does more with the older grades, but not Kindergarten. Again, we are very happy with Mrs. Renden and feel fortunate to have her as a teacher.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
