Map of Austin Creek Elementary School address.

This is an incredible school. Coming from Las Vegas, I was hoping for a great school for my kids and that is definitely what we got. The teachers are top notch and the principal is involved. I keep recommending that people move into the area to put their kids in this school.

I just graduated from Austin Creek Elementary School two months ago and I have learned so much from it. I lived in Skyhawk, the community that most Austin Creek students live in, and it was really easy to access the school. On top of that, Austin Creek scored the highest in the area on the STAR tests, and you come out of that school with so much knowledge, you could be going to college instead of seventh grade. This is a standout school in this area in extracurricular activities too, such as LEGO Robotics. We won the highest award at the competition in May and we also won almost every event. Overall this is a remarkable school that will ready your child for the rest of their life.

you have to live at mountain hawk area in order to get your kids study there, or you can still stay within 95409 and request for inter-school district, it won't be a problem coz Austin Creek is under rincon valley school district.

Could anyone please tell me what neighborhoods you have to live in to have your kids attend this school? I assume it's by residential zoning. Any help would be much appreciated. I am relocating from NYC.

I have 3 kids that go or have gone through Austin Creek Elementary School. The teachers have been very high quality, dedicated teachers. The parents are very involved and improve the number of things available to the children and enable the teachers to give a higher level of education to the children. The campus is also very nice and one of the newest schools in the area. The Star test results are also the highest in Santa Rosa.

We loved the school and were sad to say goodbye when our son moved on to middle school. But, he is well prepared for academic challenges! The adults (principal, teachers, office staff, custodian) at Austin Creek are all good role models - hard working and caring.

Austin Creek prepared my child very well for middle school and encouraged in him a love of learning. We couldn't be happier with his elementary school experience - with a talented and caring staff and principal!

The principal, Dr. Leaf, has a stellar reputation in the community-and for good reason. She's an inspiring and involved principal. She seems to attract high quality teachers, which makes this school a great place to be. The office manager is friendly and really helpful. I see why this district is considered to be the best around.

The principal is great about balancing high academic expectations with excitement and fun. The kids love Keep a Poem in your Pocket month, student council theme days, Pumpkin Carving contest, Fine Arts day, field trips and assemblies, spelling bee etc. Parents Club, staff and the principal work well together to provide kids with the best possible education.

It is all about the parent participation. This is the one thing that makes this school stand out. Many other Rincon Valley Schools also have a wonderful staff and cirriculum. It is all about how many parents can contribute to the classroom and fundraising for the school. Austin Creek clearly has a wonderful group of parents.

I have two sons at this school for the past two years. Both have had excellent teachers who are caring and highly qualified professionals. The variety of enrichment programs is quite good, including both academic (advanced reading and math small groups within the class, GATE) and extracurricular activities (music, arts, sport), many of which are possible only because of exceptional parental involvement and fund-raising efforts. I believe this school compares well with any public or private elementary schools in the SF Bay Area.

This is the top elementary school in Santa Rosa. Parental involvement is outstanding since there are so many stay-at-home moms. The school facility itself is new, and the faculty is top notch.
