Below average communication from Teachers and Administration. Frankly, I can't believe the Principal is allowed to hide out in her office all day and never address the parents at PTA meetings or curriculum night. While the teachers do seem to be doing a good job in the classroom, almost no communication comes home from the school. It is up to the parents to check the schools website and the each of your child's 6 teachers websites to see what is going on at school. The PTA could use some improvement as well. They failed to present a budget at the first PTA meeting to say what they spend their money on, but yet encourage parents to participate in the fundraisers. As a former PTA president, I know they are not following proper procedures. Although my child is doing well in all classes there, it is a sad jail like atmosphere.

I have had 2 children attend Creekland, ok for 1 in 2007. 2nd daughter 2010, great grades, but Admin is careless. They don't listen, they talk over you when you are trying to get answers, they play favorites, and no matter what the teacher is always right. Teachers even swear at kids. The admin uses no common sence.

My child transferred to Creekland Middle school and I cannot believe how impersonal the teachers and the office help (front desk) are. There are so many students that it seems that the students get lost in the madness of quantity, as opposed to focusing on quality. I know my child will adjust, and I look forward to the day when that will happen.

My daughter just finished the 6th grade at Creekland Middle. I was happy with the school pretty much except that they have no sports for 6th graders and she had to ride the bus with 6th - 12th graders, other than that she has really excelled and we are looking forward to 7th grade sports.

Nice new school, great teachers, but the parent communication stinks. The PTA or the administration hardly ever sends home any type of literature or informative newsletters.

I got to Creekland and am somewhat satisfied but not entirely Im in 7th grade and my teachers are mad at me because Im not challenged and deserve advanced classes and its not my fault and the principals need to take more action!

My daughter is a 7th grader at Creekland. She hates the school. Some of the girls are pretty mean to her. There's not much diversity and there are lots of cliques that my daughter will never be a part of, thank goodness. My heart hurts for her everyday. She went from being an honor roll student to a C student. We like the counselor at the school, he tries very hard. The principal is non-effective. I am impressed by the curriculum, however, there are a few teachers that are ineffective.

My daughter has attended Creekview Middle School for 3 years now. She has excelled in all academics and in the arts program. This is her last week and we will be sad to be leaving. The teachers are very caring and respond to all parental input. I believe this school is off to a great start. They offer many clubs and extracurricular activities for students to become involved. The parental involvement is always welcomed and in the three years that we were there there was never a question of safety.

I attended 2 years at Creekland and wasnt VERY satisfied. The school is new, but not off to a good start. It has been open 2 years, and already the principal has changed schools. Not many REAL fights with kids but there is plenty peer pressure involment resulting in a minor fight. Smart kids will have no problem in this school because when the teachers see the good grades they are getting they see them being a good teacher and tend to like them more. I am moving away from this school because I didnt see any improvement from the start. NEW is not ALWAYS better.
