This school pales in comparison to one of its feeder elementary schools, South Lakewood and then the High School it feeds, Lakewood High. Its an unfortunate detour for students in 7th and 8th grade between 2 good schools. All of my children went to S. Lakewood, Creighton and Lakewood High School. I feel the principal at Creighton needs to shoulder a lot of the blame. She sets the tone from the top and I feel she is not a good leader as she seems more interested in herself than the students there.
I can't understand if is school has a gifted and talented program that the overall school scores can be so low? Can anyone explain these scores? If this represent the overall scores then a significant number of kids are failing.
Luckily for me, I am out of that school and I am of to a better place which it high school... This school is the worse middle school and for eight grade lunch they ran out of food for a lot of students. The faculty who was in charge always let us out late and we were always late for class. This school is just a disgrace to education and students have smoked on school grounds! The teachers were terrible and I disagreed with how the teachers treated the students.... But, then again all of the students disrespected faculty. Not to mention, there were sooo many fights in Creighton and there was a lot of "graffiti" in the girls bathrooms! Plus, that school is very disorganized. So to sum up this school, it is just not worth anyone's time and is a disgrace to education! Also, I have a friend who got suspended because he was afraid about a rumor of either a school shooting or a bomb.... He was just telling the principal and I think that someone like the superintendent or something suspended him which was wrong because he was just telling what he heard. Anyways, I regret ever going to that school and I am sorry for any future students and parents that have to deal with this school...
The school was...pretty bad. I was on the accelerated program, luckily, so i wasn't involved in all the nonsense going on, but honestly, most of the kids are very misbehaved. We had to change the PEA (point, evidence, analysis) system because the kids didn't know what analysis meant. That's honestly just sad. The purple team is really the only good side to Creighton. The teachers try, but it's definatley weighed down by the other administrative staff. I'm so glad to be out of there. There were LOTS of drugs and sex going on there. a lot more than most people think.
Creighton middle school is amazing! its like one big family all of the teachers & staff are fantastic. there are several programs also. the sports programs are excellent. creighton's volleyball team was undefeated all season and took first place at championships. Also the principals do a great job of keeping creighton at its best. it is a very welcoming enviroment and everyone is very helpful and nice.
there was lots of drugs going out through the school an the an the teachers there are not the best
This is a great school. My daughter goes here and we feel she is now challanged more than she ever was in grade school. She also has more friends due to the fact of more students not needing bi-lingual attention. Great staff and student body! Go Cougars!
I went here last year and its a really good school. The teachers were really nice and glad to help with any problems. I had a fun time learning and i really liked it.
The teachers are nice and they are easy to talk with. The GT program was great, becaue I could be with other kids like me.
I'm a student in the G/T program at Creighton, and I love it! There are so many kids who you can actually talk to without them going, 'Huh?! What the heck are you saying?!' It's a great environment for really creative kids who could care less about the classic, stupid, obnoxious fads of normal middle school. The teachers are sometimes not very encouraging, and they expect a lot, which is not so great since most of us aren't all that mature or calm, anyway. In fact a lot of purple teamers are quite um, bounce-off-the-walls-ish? Even though we love to learn (usually), we're pretty much like hyperactive, crazy, humorous, creative over achievers, and Creighton is a great environment for our branch of the human species. hahaha! Homework is really harsh too. I procrastinate a lot, and it usually takes around 5 hours... Overall, I recomend it to Gited/Talented people.
WE think the purple team is great. My third child is finishing the program and all three have benefitted significantly from the fine instruction and rigorous expectations of the teachers
this school is a great invironment for focused kids because there are no gang members
In many ways, Creighton's 'Gifted and Talented' program has been good for our daughter. She's around other kids who are interested in learning and not too interested in more typical 'cool' peer pressures which detract from learning. However we find that several of her teachers are not helpful or not really interested in helping the kids learn.They simply go through the motions, and let the kids sink or swim on their own. They're not excited about what they teach and therefore the kids miss the opportunity to become excited about what they are learning. These few teachers should not be teaching gifted children. The principals in the school seem to be much more interested in discipline than in creating an exciting, healthy learning environment. They are not in touch with these kids at all.
I think this school is great especially for children with disabilities. I had 2 children go here before and now that we have moved back I am sending my other child there.
