i can not give a full review on this yet but i have my son going here this school year and i have been in the office were i talked to some staff and it seems to be good. I read all of these reviews and it looks like they are fixing whatever problems they have had in the past. i especialy like seeing they have more parent envolements in the school now. For some of these reasons to not like the school as far as bullies or not enouph homework those are minor issues to me im more worried about does my kid know the subjects at the level he or she needs to so they can procced to the next level of education. Teachers need to have control over the kids yes they do but parents need to help teach there kids how to act at the same time. i will be paying close attention to creek side school and as far as the staff i hope they do have enouph common sence to handle a fight or a bullie as far as telling the parents if there kid got in a fight or not i would think !!!!! Every school will have fights and other bad things that happen it is only natural but the staff will need to handle it in a good manor ,so i hope we all work to a better future for are kids both teachers and parents.

My daughter has been a student at Creekside Middle School for one year. Unfortunately, some community members think Creekside Middle School is not a good school. Creekside Middle School has some awesome teachers and is a very good school. My daughter has not experience any discipline issues at Creekside Middle School. The school has more parent involment now!

I was a student almost two years ago. I got beat up and not a single teacher stopped it. This school is terrible!!! A student helped me and they didn't call my parents when i was in the nurse office and the girl who beat me up was only suspended.

Because is a great school, they have a great faculty and staff, and a great curriculum; but they are struggling with overcrowded conditions and cut and slashed State funds.

I am currently a student of cms and i am not surprised by any of this. A lot of people look down on this school; teachers, parents, and students. But i don't think it is that bad. i think the students just need to try harder. I am in many school clubs and involved a lot at cms and i even visit the school library every once in a while. I did go to summer school last year but I will admit that was my fault not my teacher's infact I stayed after school to do extra work when i was failing, and my teacher always cried because she was trying her hardest to make us succeed but some still didn't try. we may not be the best school but at least some students and staff work hard to make it better.

Creekside, from what I have seen in the past year, is now under good administration. The teachers and the new administration have improved the school environment. I believe great things are starting to happen at the school. My child goes there and I have spoken to both, administrators and teachers and they have been very supportive.

Creekside has struggled in the past under poor administration and is still suffering due to leadership at the district level. The teachers that have survived these tumultuous past few years are dedicated to the success of the school and it's students. I am disappointed but not shocked by the less than positive reviews for Creekside but want to stress that the education available has improved dramatically. The before 2006 the administration was well intended but ineffective in all areas, most severly discipline. During the 2007-2008 school year students were let down again with a new but weak discipline policy; unfortunately discipline problems leak into every aspect of school life. The administration has since been re-vamped and is taking a much tougher stance on discipline and positively transformed the academic atmosphere of the campus. Thanks to the hard work from teachers and administrators the school is muddling its way towards a much brighter

I believe that CS has many academic and disciplinary challenges that require urgent resolution. However, I must say that I have personally experienced the quick, caring and professional response from the current administration. The administration and teachers strive to be supportive and professional. I strongly believe that CS is very capable of educating our students.

Evidently the superintendent did not choose well this time either. Since the new administration took over, more than one teacher left before the end of the school year due to major lack of support from administrators and extreme student behavior issues. I would move out of the area before sending my kids to this school. The district and school board need to wake up and recognize that there's a huge problem at Creekside.

The faculty is less than stellar, students have no disipline. Teachers seem less than enthusiastic about teaching, son just comes home with worksheets to complete. Don't send you students here! We are moving out of Patterson as this is the only option for 6 7 and 8th grade

My child went to this school for 6th and 7th grade, and she im proved alot! She went from c's, d's and even f's! to a's and b's... I dont know why parents are saying that this was or is a bad school?... maybe because the school was new when they're children were here in this school, but when there's a new school, you dont have the rigth teachers and everything. You have to look for the best, and it takes time to find.

Our school suffered from abominable leadership over the past few years. Creekside's teachers must have labored under severe stress. Academically it went nowhere. I find it hard to judge the quality of teachers, under the circumstances. Thankfully, the entire leadership of the school was sent off at the end of the 2005-2006 school year. I pray that the superintendent chose better this time, because I plan to keep my kids at Creekside.

If you can, move now. The school looks great from the outside. Don't read a book by it's cover. Terrible teachers, students, rules, no discipline! Leave while you can.

My child attended this school for the 6th grade this past year. Homework was non-existant. The academic atmosphere was very uninspiring to my child. In order for my child not to spriral downwards, I sought alternatives, including other school districts, the first chance we got. I was very disappointed with this school. I am not surprized by its ranking as a result.
