5th grade My daughter absolutely loved how there wasn't any tall gates like at here old school,but she told me about this one girl who hates her a lot So I think there is a bullying problem also I think here it is harder for her to make friends with other kids a month later I told her she could hang out with her friends and she said "I don't have any" then I met a friend who also had a daughter in the same grade we got them to talk to each other and know she has lots of friends But I am afraid other people are going through the same thing staff should she kids that are just walking around or sitting all alone they should say I know this person they would be fun to hang out with why you go over and talk to her/him I would totally recommend this school for others

Second Creek has been a great partner in both of my childrens education. Despite the handicap of having large classes the teachers' staff, administrators and even the PTO really come together and make it our home. We are pleased with our children's academic performance, and thrilled with their love of school. Thanks Second Creek, Go Bisons!

This school is horrible. I have been dealing with bully issues and the teacher is complaining that she has too many kids to deal with it and the principal is constantly putting me off. My son is not challenged at all and I worry that he is falling behind. I do work with him at school but I expect that he should get equally challenged if not more by trained educators. Very disappointed overall.

We move alot and have been to many schools. Second Creek is the worst so far. Unless you are volunteering and up in their face you will have no idea how your child is doing. I am really worried that when we move again my child will be really behind. Almost everyone that i know is trying to get their kids into charter's schools in the area to get them out of Second Creek. I am so thankful that mine got into one of them next year!

My children (6 yrs & 8 yrs) have been attending Second Creek for 2 years, and I have been so pleased with our experience. They have had very dedicated teachers who have gone out of their way to make sure both children were being challenged, and they have taken a personal interest in my kids. I've also been impressed with the community feeling at the school. The principal, Ms. Simms, is very approachable, and the office staff are friendly and easy to work with. The PTO is amazing which just adds to the great feeling of community. We are a biracial family, and the other thing we love about Second Creek is that it is a racially diverse school. I really have only positive things to say about Second Creek.

I have 2 kids that go or have gone to this school and we absolutely love it. We have had amazing teachers and the staff is always friendly and caring. Both of my children are A students and their state tests are always well above the national average, so I know they are getting the education they need. But as with everything in life, you get out of it what you put into it. We are active and involved in our school and we have had nothing but great experiences.

My kids have been at this school for 2 years and we have been very pleased. Mrs. Sims is a fabulous principal; just the right combination of love and the toughness that children need. She and the teachers and the office staff have always been polite and helpful. This school deserves a much better rating then it has.

Second Creek administrators and staff have been a treat from day one. We have been blessed with teachers that engage and make learning fun while making a strong push to bring out the best in my student. They displine in a loving and consistent manner that produces results in positive outcomes. The watchful eye on all aspects of the school from teacher to volunteer consistency is noticeable. Second Creek has built a sense of community for their families. The environment in which our kids learn is commendable. We feel welcomed each time we visit and know that our 3rd grader is getting the education needed to thrive. We mostly apprecite their continued effort to grow and improve to better serve our student.

First, I find it interesting that Second Creek beats the state average in reading, math, and writing scores and yet gets a low rating. My kids are very different. My daughter was low in reading and my son was advanced. Second Creek teachers were able to help BOTH be successful. Mrs. Manes was great in helping my daughter improve and Mrs. Krenek kept my son challenged. I've been very pleased with their other teachers as well. Second Creek's PTO alone deserves bonus points added to Second Creek's score. They help bring everyone together to form a welcoming community. Great students, teachers, parents, administration, and PTO......Second Creek is second to none!

I have nothing but bad things to say about second creek, its the worst school we have been to so far. Teacher parent relationships are nonexistent . There is a reason that this school is rated a big fat F!

Second Creek is a great school with a great staff. We moved our child to Second Creek from an elementary school in another district because we felt as if she was not academically challenged. She was placed in Ms. Kasza's 1st grade class and our problem was solved! Ms. Kasza saved 1st grade for us!

I couldn't be prouder to have my daughter attend Second Creek! I can't say enough good things about the administration, the teachers, and the staff - they all seem to really care about the students and their education. The PTO is phenomenal in getting the parents and community as a whole involved through their events, even getting me to attend events before my kids were in school. I work with six school districts and most of the schools in those districts, and am yet to see a school more complete than Second Creek. So proud that it's my community school!

Second Creek is a GREAT school!! My two children attend here and have for the last two years after moving from another area school district. The difference in academics, expectations, and administration of the school is night and day! Second Creek is amazing. I was disappointed to see they only received 4 out of 10 from the 'Great Schools' ratings. My experience, and that of my children has been 9 out of 10! Great teachers and support and Mrs. Sims and Mr. Carter are WONDERFUL!!

I have two kids who attend Second Creek and we have had a great experience. The best part has been the teachers. They have all been excellent, caring, and committed to each kids individual success. They blend the right amount of fun and discipline.

Academics are good... no emphasis on upper-level music... no orch, choir, or band offered of any significance. Music helps self-esteem & attendance & test scores

I'm the mom of a 1st grader, and honestly, the principal at second creek elementry is one of the worse I've ever met, she is rude and condesending, she is not a people friendly person, and I feel very uncomfortable visiting my son at school after meeting her.

We love this school, my son has attended Second Creek for the last 3 years. Since going to this school his ADHD has not been an issue. He has been on the honor roll every semester for two of those years. The staff has all been great. Mr Felton and Mrs Simms are fantastic. Mrs Rodivin and Mr Mogensen are some of the best teachers I have ever seen. Special thanks to Nancy in office staff too she has always been a great asset. I will be sad when my son finishes 6th grade this year and moves on........

My children (2nd and 5th grades) feel absolutely at home at Second Creek... and like it as much as their previous Texas elementary from last year - Alexander Elementary in Katy ISD - one of the top ten elementaries in all of Texas! My kids' teachers are very very very strong and caring.

My son has been going to this school for a year now and it is a great school. The teachers genuinly care about these kids. My son has improved so much on his education with reading and with math. They do have homework on the regular that sometimes can be a bit easy but most of the time it is age approriate. This school is also very well diversed the children there come from 15 different language backgrounds which is great. They also have great specials that are including science, art, PE, computers and Library starting in KG. My sons favorite project was making slime in science class. This school is great and the Principle and secretary are great people who care about the school, anyone should give this school a chance.

We have one of our sons in this school and one in Butler Elementary in Ft. Lupton. We are amazed at the Specials that this school offers. The science lab special is something I wish had been at my elementary school. My son gets to go to music, art, p.e., computer lab, science lab, and the library as specials. In science, they do hands on experiments every class. My son is in the 1st grade and I have been impressed with his teacher. She is a literary specialist, so my son is reading pretty well for the 1st semester. He has homework every night, and while it only takes 10 or 20 minutes per night to do, it helps keep me informed as to what they are working on in class. I think it was worth the fight to get him into this school.

My daughter is currently in fourth grade. She has next to no homework and the in-class is very easy for her. I do not want for her to suffer later on in high school and college because she got behind in elementary school. I have bought her Fourth grade level language arts and math books that I have her do to keep her mind going. Hopefully her homework will get a little more challenging later in the year.

The school was not in the least challenging for my 5th grade daughter. We were truly disappointed. Homework was done every night in ten minutes. Her quailty of work fell, due to her knowing she didn't have to try hard. The bad news was her grades didn't fall. The teacher's expectations were extremely low.
