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.
This is the best school and environment you can put you kid in within entire sonoma county period!
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.
The California Distinguished School award and Devon Leaf's 'Sonoma County Administrator of the Year ' award are icings on the Austin Creek cake with the ingredient of strong leadership at that school since it opened in 2000. Congratulations!
Austin Creek has earned every single of one its ratings to make it a 10 on the GreatSchools rating. The principal, teachers and parents make it the best school in Santa Rosa. I'm proud to have my children attend Austin Creek.
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.
The extra enrichment activities at this school are phenomenal: Bugology, squid dissection, Lego Robotics, raising trout in the computer lab, Noon art program, after-school drama, foreign language, the music program, etc. - all due to fabulous parents club, teachers, principal.
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.
My child loves all the hands-on science experiences, which all children have at Austin Creek from kindergarten through sixth grade!
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.
A+ administration, staff, students and parents. No discipline problems to speak of, due to the school's Life Skills program, good kids in general, and respectful atmosphere on campus.
Excellent leadership, facilities, and staff. The school culture is positive, and the students are happy and involved learners.
My 2 children love this beautiful new school. It's all about the principal: Devon Leaf provides excellent leadership and focus. She is very intelligent, friendly and classy. The teachers are great, too! We feel very fortunate to be in this district.
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.
An exceptional school and staff. Parental involvement is huge here and we have an exciting campus. Principal is wonderful, so is the Superintendant.
Best school in the area. Great teachers and principal. Parent involment is encouraged and open to all. Excellent facilities.
Great music program, teachers are involved in every aspect of the learning process. Great parent group
