Twin Creeks is a wonderful school! Very involved, parents and nice families. Wonderful principal and amazing teachers. It is our little home away from home! Our teacher last year was the Gate teacher and we were very impressed as always.
Great diversity. My daughter starts K in Twin creeks last year and she loves it. Her teacher is the best teach I have ever seen. How much my daugher loves her K teacher? She cries and said she does not want to leave Teacher Beth on the last day of school. Lots of project and I knew the teacher did lots of extra work. We are lucky.
My son made a huge progress after Mr. Ono's Kindergarten class. The teacher is so devoted and professional. My son became a great reader and writer. My son became outgoing, talkative and cheerful after attending Twin Creek. Other teachers according to other parents are also excellent. The staffs and principle are so friendly and they always address any issues quickly. We love Twin Creek Elementary.
Excellent school, teachers are very involved, as are the parents. The school, along with the District, are very concerned about exceeding the educational goals and technology in today's fast-paced society.
The best year ever for our 5th grader. New leadership at the school is taking it back to previously held positions. The school is getting back the drive from the past and will soon become the best one of the San Ramon Valley School District.
Barb Mallon - Twin Creeks new principal has made a tremendous difference! She is an expert on helping gifted children programs and gave our boys challenges that previous leadership was unwilling to consider. I think Twin Creeks will be a 10 this year (still waiting for test scores to be posted) but either way the school is on its way to becoming a top rung performer in the San Ramon Valley School District. Also some of the teachers are amazing - especially in the lower grades.
The school is making a positive change after the change of the principal. There are also more involvement from the parents after this change. My 5th grader loves her classroom and taking classes on a laptop. My K grader likes the attention from her teachers. This is definitely a good school!
I'm happy my girls are there. Since the change of the principal, the school is improving a lot!!
I like the community. I have a kindergarden. The teachers are so sweet. My daughter is so happy with the school's environment. We are glad to be at Twin Creeks.
It makes me sick to know my son attends a school that has such lower API performance. Yes, teachers are friendly but do not have the high standard for academic achievement in mind. There are some kids behaving really bad in the school and teachers do not seem able to discipline them. I am surprised to see some parents and students demeanor seem matches with those in lower socioeconomic school district. We paid such a high price for the house in SR hoping my son would get good education, but the school makes me feel being in Oakland.
This is our last year here, and I am glad it's on to Iron Horse! We've been in this community a long time, and have definitely experienced an overall decline at this school. Have to agree with some of the other parents about the ineffective principal. Things weren't so bad when my older kid was at Twin Creeks 7 years ago. I feel bad for the families who still have kids here.
No complaints whatsoever about the principal, test scores or anything else for that matter. My child is doing very well and is quite happy. Overall performance and happiness are far more important to us than test scores.
I continue to be disappointed with Twin Creeks since the current principal came in. There seems to be no real leadership and the school lacks a sense of direction and purpose. I am not one of those parents that's super-involved because I work but the other parents that I talk to seem to have the same feelings. I heard several groups of parents went all the way to the district office but that nothing changed and they got the shove aside. My son is a 5th grader this year and most of the other 5th grade parents are just saying that they're glad to be moving on after this year. Its too bad, the school used to be great but poor leadership seems to be taking at toll on test scores, morale and learning.
My children have been at this school for a few years now. The teachers and principle have been great. The office staff is wonderful with the kids. My boys are learning and actually like going to school. Sure some good teachers have left in the past. In the past few years teachers have left due to pregnancy, moving out of state, and left to find work closer to home. However, with these great teachers leaving we have gained some other great teachers too.
I agree that the community, parents, and many of the teachers are wonderful at Twin Creeks. Can we just get a new principal?
A number of other parents directed me to this site to compare our school's performance with other elementary schools in the district. I was appalled to see that Twin Creeks ranks at the bottom of the elementary schools in the San Ramon Valley School district for API scores. Although our score improved 4 points from last year, most of the other elementary schools had much more significant score improvements. Twin Creeks is now the only elementary school in San Ramon to score below 900. It is a reflection of the poor leadership and lack of clear direction in learning programs at the school. On a positive note, Twin Creeks has wonderful teachers and parents who are very involved and care about providing a quality education for the kids.
This is an amazing school. I'm not quite sure where the previous entries got their statistics but we are certainly increasing in our API over the last 2 years. There have been wonderful programs put into place and the parents and commnity are very supportive of the school. I am thrilled that my students go to TwinCreeks!
Mr.Own is my son's kindergarden teacher and he is awesome!!! My son David loves him. He's learned so much from him in just a short period of time. Keep up the good work Mr.Ono. Thanks Kevin Sinclair
Twin Creeks has a great sense of community! It's like one big family! Go Tigers!!!!
Twin Creeks is not the great school it once was. It seems that the school is lacking essential leadership and this is apparent by the declining test scores and departure of many staff and strong teachers. The school looks good on paper but there is a lack of implementation of programs, follow through and execution on the principals part.
