I've read multiple reviews on Belle Creek and I have to say I can see both sides... At first I was not too impressed with the reception, teachers, and principal. However, it seemed they had more, for lack of a better word, respect, once I began to come around more, show my face and get to know them. My child absolutely loves this school, her teachers, and even homework! I honestly believe they have #1 sandards for every child. My child is in 1st grade and has quite a bit of homework... Not an excessive amount but just enough to show that school is a priority. 1st grade should be the year where children learn how to be disciplined and stay focused. This is exactly what BC does!

when I enrolled my son to this school i heard so many good things about it, but with time I found out that this is the worst school ever! The personal is rude and lazy, sometimes they could be mean with kids and parents, the front desk employees treat the people there like if we are asking them for a favor, they have no manners at all, I don't want my son to be another year at that school he is so unhappy there..

Like all schools Belle Creek has areas where growth could occur, for example, fostering a more positive environment. However, my children have done nothing but thrive in this rigorous, high academic standard of education. With few exception, the majority of the teachers my children have been in contact with have been helpful, patient and knowledgeable. My biggest complaint has been the quantity of homework in grades 3-5, but I'd rather there be too much homework than too little or just busy work. With that being said, Belle Creek has been an upstanding school for my children and I highly recommend it to anyone considering attending in the future. Keep up the good work staff!

My daughter is finishing up the 2nd grade, and I'm not overly happy about her educational experience at Belle Creek. I've been told by my daughter multiple times that their music class involved watching a movie (and not even a musical, but Bolt), and their technology class involved printing out superheros to color, and playing video games. The principal is indifferent, does not engage students or parents, and is generally concerened with making sure she looks good above and beyond anything else. The teachers have been friendly enough, but I'm glad our daughter does so well on her own. I don't know how well she would do if she were struggling. We've heard nothing but poor reviews for all of the 3rd grade teachers, so we are looking to transfer to another school if possible.

I have had kids in this school for 8 years now. I love this school and have had no problems. I saw a comment about the middle school math teacher and could not believe what I read. This teacher is not only a great person, but a great teacher! My daughter has learned so much from her. I can never see this teacher ever disrespecting anyone. She is a great teacher. My daughter loves her!

I would avoid this school just due to the middle school math teacher. My child has never doubted herself more, come home crying more, or had such little confidence after having worked with her for nearly three years. It is infuriating the level of disrespect this woman has for her students and their parents.

This is the first year my son has attended BC, and I have to say he has had amazing growth and is learning so much. He in in Kindergarden, and his teachers are so caring and they communicate well with me, but then again I am involved and I reach out to them as well. While the classes are a little large, it doesnt seem to effect my sons progress as much as I thought it would. He recives plenty of homework and when I see the things they work on I am amazed they are starting some of this so young. I am 25, so it hasnt been that long since I went to a public school. I see my son being at BC until 8th grade, he is happy there and so am I.

We love Belle Creek! Our son has attended BC for the last 2 years. He has done so well. He loves his teachers and the rest of the staff. We are so thankful for BC, and the fact that it's within walking distance from our house is an added bonus!

My child is in 1st grade at this school. I am very unimpressed with all 3 of the teachers. There are only about 8 1/2 weeks of school left and all I can say is Thanks Goodness!! It has really been a trial this year. There is very little if any communication from the teachers. Homework is a farce. The principal is hardly ever seen. I see the Asst Principals all the time. When you do see the principal she always has a scowl on her face. Doesn't seem to be happy about working with children. Am seriously looking for another school to send my child to next year.

I have two children in this school, my oldest has been here for 5 years and it's my youngest first year. I personally love the school. I disagree with some of the comments saying the principal is not around, I drop my kids off every morning and always see her greeting the children. I will say that they have come a very long way from the first year and continue to improve every year and the teachers are great. When my oldest started to struggle at the beginning of the year I had every one of her teachers contacting me and together we got her on track and she is back to straight A's. Therefore, in my opinion the teachers actually care a lot more than any other schools that my friends children attend. I will say in 5th grade there is a good amount of homework which is rough as a working parent to schedule everything around but I would much rather have them have a lot of homework and learning versus having no homework and not learning anything. I recommend this school to anyone as they have done a great job, and in my opinion way better than a traditional public school.

My family is extremely disappointed in this school. Communication between teachers and parents is nonexistent, we have never met or seen the principal, bullying is an everyday occurrence and obviously tolerated by teachers and staff as nothing is done about it when it is reported. We are in the process of exploring our options for other schools in the area and cannot get out of this school fast enough.

Terrible school. Never once saw the main principal. She has VP do all meetings. 1st grade teachers are not supportive. They are not equipped to provide students the education they need. More than 10 kids from 1st grade have transferred to a nearby elementary school and are now academically progressing as they should of been in Belle Creek CS. The school does not communicate effectively with parents. Communication is horrible.

We travel over 10 miles to this school we love because clearly it allows us choice of the environment we choose to raise our children. I want my children to not grow up a product of their environment but know they are key to the success of their environment. I will allow their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. The teachers are suffering and in need of the help because they are creating an environment of learning while fundamently all districts nearby are suffering budget cuts which lead to job cuts.

Prospective teachers should be wary when choosing a Charter School as a potential employer. Teachers get very little administrative support in this school and the administrators expect miracles.

I choose to have my children attend this school. It's a drive well worth it! There are a good core group of teachers who have been at this school that help make it thrive and help the new teachers-which I happen to think are also outstanding! The Principal is visible-you see her greeting the younger children on the South side of the building everyday! I see one of the Vice Principal's patrolling the drop off/pick up area on the West Side of the school everyday! There are also many teachers patrolling different areas of the school before and after school to make sure our children are safe. They make sure the traffic flows smoothly and that our children arrive/leave safely. They have security measures set-up to make sure our children are safe. I am happy with the administration & teachers. The curriculum promotes critical thinking skills and responsibilty.

This school is still new, people are going too be catching on about charter schools. Yes charter school are hard and some say they give to much home work but that is what keeps charter school ahead of the non charter schools. So the people that don't like this school change schools. Belle creek is nuber one!!!

This school has been a real struggle. Many teachers are unhappy with administration. The Principal is very invisible and has been only there for important stuff. I hate this school.

Most of the teachers I have dealt with are young or new to teaching, but I feel like they are fresh and still excited about being a teacher. My children love the school and I have seen them come along way,especially in reading and math. I would never think of removing them from the school. I drive 20 min each way and its worth the drive.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
