This school is BEUTIFUL. The staff there is amazing. It helped my kids do better in school. My son was bullied in Antelope Crossing ad no one would help him. The staff didnt care. So we moved to Creekview and my son loved it. He was an honor roll student , all the teachers helped him so much. I am very glad to send my child to that school.

A giant waste of taxpayer money. Beautiful campus with administrators and teachers that do not help children learn. The Sacramento Bee just reported over 100 kids being suspended out of the 600 students with 1 expulsion. That means that 1 out of 6 students are being disciplined to a high level? Sounds like a warzone. My son went there just last year and we ended up moving to find a better school. Bullying, terrible morale, and foul language is rampant.

I'm a student who currently just graduated from Creekview, and I have to say the two years I spent there were the best. Not only were the teachers helpful, they showed up many different learning styles and helpful tools for the future. 8th grade was the best year for me. The teachers for 8th grade are hilarious, fun, and just like to make class worth coming to. I learned to love Social studies after 8th grade started, because of the amazing teacher. The sports there were fantastic. I played two sports while I went there ( Softball and Basketball )and I have to say that year was the best for sports. The coaches are great, if your daughter or son want to do sports there you should strongly encourge them to. They will not just make more friends from being on the team, but make life long friends. I have to say I became freinds with people I never imagined talking to before, and I'm so thankful for that. Over all this school is a great school. They have many fun activites for your kids to be involed, and a great staff. Goodluck to all the kids going there you'll have a great time (:

I am an eighth grader at Creek View and I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is an excellent school. Personally I believe that the eighth grade teachers, all of them, are one of the best things the school has to offer. They don't just read out of the book and expect you to understand and keep up, they use humor and kindness to make sure that everyone understands the lesson. I know that if i ever had a problem i could go to any one of them and they would help me the best they could. The staff is friendly and helpful and Creek View is simply an Excellent place to go every day. Anyone attending this fine school would be lucky.

My son has attended this school since inception. The current 2010/2011 principal is terrible, I had to report him to the superintendent twice. The male 8th grade teachers are engaged, hardworking and professional, the female 8th grade teachers are ineffective, some have poor attendence, and most are frequently behind. The new principal's dictatorship-style has corrupted the formerly competent vice principal and the new principal doesn't welcome constructive feedback. The male teachers treat parents with respect and a helpful attitude. The female teachers and admin higher ups treat parents with disdain and have to be monitored for violating students and parents rights. If you send your child here you will need to be VIGILANT. If you don't like the story you are getting, follow up higher up the chain of command because the rules are frequently re-written here but those revisions aren't published or dispersed, (this is often because they violate common sense, professionalism, and American tradition). The former principal is gravely missed and the teacher reputation is sinking because of poor management.

They go through teachers like water .To many test . Three years here my kid struggled every year. Also two principles in the three years my child attended. There is a problem and they know it but wont fess up. Its my child that loses out don't let it be yours too. She does all the work but doesn't do well on there test oh well. The stress level is through the roof. My poor kid is losing the best years of her life. Remember its not all about money these are kids not adults lets treat them like that.

I'm a student that went here in 6th grade. I honestly think that this is a horrible school. For one, i auctually attended this school, so i know what its like. There were a lot of gangs associated with this school, and bullies. The only good thing they had here was lunch.
