I may not be a genus but the comment that rave about the school look fabricated by the Administration. The truth is the academic are good, if you are looking to be taught to the test. Teachers are so concerned about the standardized test scores that their pay is based off of that they lose sight of actually engaging students. The Administration doesn't care about the students especially the Principal, who is more concerned about dress code than anything else.
A GREAT school! Creekside is ranked 155 in the nation by Newsweek's 2013 America's Best High Schools list, and 155 by The Washington Post's Most Challenging High Schools list. This is no small feat as there are 30,000+ public high schools in the U.S.. Principal Randy Johnson is doing an excellent job despite the rapidly growing student population...everybody wants to go to Creekside. Students always are smiling and polite. Deans Helmly and Highsmith handle a myriad of jobs and are always a steadfast presence for the students. The administrative staff is responsive caring and there are many excellent teachers. There is also a great TV news show featured daily on the school's excellent website, and there is a large number of parents who volunteer, another reason why this school is so great.
Most of the students are drug addicts. The teachers and counselors are great, but the principal, deans, and assistant principals, only care about stats, not their students. There is also favoritism, as long as you're part of the football team, you can do whatever you want and never get in trouble.
AMAZING SCHOOL!! On Newsweek's Best High Schools in America list, this high school doesn't disappoint. It is an academic and athletic powerhouse with the brightest and most well-mannered students and teachers. The administration is totally supportive and responsive. School spirit is %100. AMAZING SCHOOL!
This is a wonderful school. Principal R. Johnson is doing an outstanding job. The school offers a vast curriculum. The students seem to get along really well. They offer AP and Honors classes and the teachers are readily available for tutoring if students need it. The teachers try to make all the class subjects interesting. We moved here from another state but it did not take long for our children to make friends.
Just an all around fantastic school! The teachers are great, the kids are friendly, the administration is wonderfully responsive and shows real concern for the students. I can honestly say that we have zero complaints.
Creekside HS is an A+ school for our child. We are new to the state and the staff, kids and teachers have made strides to make us feel welcome and go that extra mile. Ms. Dowling and Ms. Godfrey are outstanding teachers and Dean Highsmith is a good role model for the kids. I chose this community for the 10 schools and I got 10 schools and a whole lot more!
CHS is a first year school with only 9th and 10th grade students plus a few in the 11th grade. I give it for out of five stars because I have seen the school come together. I am sure that soon they will be rated as one of the best schools in this area. The school is brand new, the administration staff is superb, headed up by Mr. Paul Abatinozzi as principal. He has a great staff of teachers. My daughter is a 9th grader and loves the school and her teachers. They have a wonderful music program headed up by Mr. Rick Fowler. For a first year band they were super.
