My eldest daughter has been in this school since kindergarten and she is now in 5th grade. My youngest daughter is in 1st grade and in her second year at the school. I have been very involved with the school working as a board member of the PTCO and a volunteer for the past 5 years. We have loved everything about the school, how welcoming it is and how they have genuinely wanted to have parents involved. Their test scores seem to consistently be improving and both of my daughters seem to be performing above grade level each year. With all of that being said, this school and district is in a transitional year. A new principal started at the school this year and the district is about to hire a new superintendent. I can only hope that I will continue to see improvements in the years to come.

The teachers here are incredible. The administration leaves something to be desired. The counselor is the worse I have seen. The administration leaves the counselor to handle all student matters and he does a very poor job. I would never recommend this school to anyone. The teachers do such an incredible job of communicating with parents as well as challenging the students but if any issues arise, good luck getting any support or assistance from the office.

I believe that the teachers have the best intentions and they are hard workers, however the instructional leadership of the principal is taking away from the talents of the teachers. While the teachers should be using their precious time planning for instruction, they are given tasks that cause them to focus on few children and paperwork to help them raise their test scores . My child loves to see his teacher smile, but she seems so overloaded and stressed. This has an impact on her classroom and the children in there. That woman needs to treat her teacher better!

While the Principal and most of the teachers seem genuinely concerned and caring, the educational standards seem far below par. My children went to Sand Creek from first grade to fifth and the homework from that day to this has always been the same. Reading and response, spelling and very simple math drills. My children have no concept of even the most basic history and very limited knowledge of geography, culture, and sciences. This isn't an overcrowded school, they have the potential to be doing so much more, and while you have a few teachers who really are stellar performers, they are still bound by the rules/regulations set forth by the district and the school Principal.

The CSAP scores for this school tells a lot about this school. This school is heading in the wrong direction. Very difficult for children to feel connected whent here is so much turnover.
