Wonderful school, great country setting campus, teachers are really helpful!! What I like is that this campus has kids just thru fifth grade and not the older kids which can sometimes lead to issues. Overall we are very happy our daughter goes here!
My son has been at Dry Creek for 1st and now 2nd grade. We love it, and he has really learned well with both teachers. He is now in a 2nd/3rd grade split and I was very nervous about that. However, I have been pleasantly surprised with how well it is going. The front office staff is always so friendly, know my child by name, and are always warm. This is a huge plus! The Fall Carnival is so much fun and there seems to be a great turnout. We also love the Sunrise Kids Club after school problem offered for before and after school care, although it is expensive. My only negative feedback about Dry Creek is that they don't have a no-cost or low-cost after school program. My guess it that it isn't a priority need in this area though.
My son has gone to Dry Creek from K-2nd grade. The teachers have all been very good and my son is very happy here. It does not have much in the way of facilities (like a cafeteria) but we like the small feel of the place. The Halloween carnival is a lot of fun every year!
We have a Kinder student and have had a great year. There is some issues with communication of school events like wrong times, this is really a non-issue if you are involved and ask questions. The teachers have been very nice. The new principal has been great. The traffic on PFE is very crowded at the end of the school day.
This is a wonderfuly country school. I adore my daughter's K1 and 1st grade teachers. Super educational materials. My daughter has learned so much and is enthusiastic about school. The downside is the budget is small so they cannot offer many programs but do have a computer lab center. Front office is organized and Principal Groat is very involved in all school activities; runs a tight ship. Love the school spirit! Teacher's all seem content and are great teamplayers. Couldn't be happier. Another downside is that parents are not more involved in volunteering.
This is the worst school. The kids eat outside beacuse there is no cafeteria. PE is walking what they call the track. There is no gym. My child is not learning what needs to be learned, nor is he being challenged. It is way to easy. Coming from a school in Ar izona he is learning things this year he already knew from last year. b
I could not be happier with this school. My daughter has received a great education and has had a wonderful experience. The teachers and faculty are fantastic.
My child was a kindergartner at Dry Creek and he loved school! He had the best teacher that in spite of having nearly half her class EL still managed to keep everyone happy and on track. This was truly a homey wonderful place to be. Great job Mrs. Coulter.
