Principal and staff are pretty good. It is easy to make friends here, and the academic and sports here are overachieving. Probably not the best school out therem but certainly not the worst. -Graduating class of 14

I started out new at this school the 2011-12 school year and ended up switching schools half way through the year. I hate this school and do not suggest sending your child here. The office staff is probably the only nice thing about this school. The teachers give packets, and tell you to entertain yourselves when you're done. I only had one good teacher at this school. The children here are horrible and cruel. They teased me and bullied me because I couldn't-or wouldn't- buy brand name clothes and purses. I didn't look the same as everyone else and so I was excluded. I didn't have any friends and girls teased me and left me out of parties and all plans because I didn't fit in. I was in the highest level 7th grade math class and the teacher didn't actually teach me anything. My dad had to teach me everything when I got home. I hate this school and wish I had never gone there.

Although the school is full of amazing teachers, it lacks greatly in other areas. If you are moving to this district from somewhere else you can forget making friends. The kids are cruel and i get teased for "being born above the mason-dixon line." They are not at all accepting of diversity. The dress code is way too strict. They need to focus on making their classes actually challenging, not spend all their time measuring the hemline of my skirt with a 3x5 notecard. I am rather conservative person, but no where sells skirts that are three inches above the knee unless i get it from the old lady section.

What a great school! The academics are excellent, the teachers are great with the students, and the activities are awesome. They keep the kids busy and there are very worthwhile extracurriculars. I am so glad my son attends this scheel.

Creekview is an excellent school with very caring teachers that still take the time to communicate with parents. Transferring from a big city to Canton, we were a little concerned over the quality of education my child would receive. Creekview has surprised me in a very good way! My daughter is more focused now than ever on school and has a clear set of goals for her future. I know that Creekview and its teachers have a lot to do with this. Thanks!

Creekview has been a great school for my son who is a high-achiever. Their honors and AP classes have challenged him to become a better student. His teachers are caring and attentive.

This school is an excellent example of a loving community. Some may disagree, but they do not appreciate this amazing school. There are very good extra curricular activities, and Creekview High School works well together with their sports.

The teachers truly care about the kids. They arrive early & stay late. Students are challenged to take charge and learn by doing. Outstanding principle !!

As a student in honors classes at Creekview, I feel I have been adequately prepared for the couple of AP tests I have taken, which I think really speaks for the quality of the education. While cheating is a problem, it's not so much that no one cares, but teachers must provide proof, which can be difficult. This is a problem the principal needs to deal with... and unfortunately hasn't. And while much of the funds seem to go football, people should remember that they make thousands each year just on tickets. There is no doubt that unique classes like Video Broadcast and Healthcare Science are well-funded. As with any public school, you may need some outside help, but I know all of my teachers will come early and stay late if I ask. I could go on and on, but I can say for honors students, it's really great.

The school has no honor code, the students around me cheat all of the time and the teachers don't seem to care. Some of the coaches are poor mentors and the cafeteria food is unorderly and awful. Surely wish I did not have to go here.

Love this school, it has a lot of team spirit for being a new school!

Okay school... Most Teachers are horrible and tend not to care. Some teachers are very bad. A teacher hit a girl and called her retarded one day! Other teachers really just don't care about kids. The building is very nice, and the administration (not faculty) is very helpful and kind. The Food needs to be dealt with immediately. It is pathetic and these students deserve better. The football games are very fun. Administration does tend to show favoritism towards the athletes and cheerleaders. The drama department also cast the same kids in every lead role. This is probably the best High School in Cherokee County, but that's because the other four high schools are below average. I wouldn't recommend moving into Cherokee county if you are looking to put your children in public school, move into the Milton, Walton, Chattahoochee, or Northview districts.

My coach only cares about sport and not the kid's grades. My coach only wants me to do well in my sport and doesnt care about my career choices im trying to make. He will yell at me if I try to talk to him about it and he says I need to get focused in my sport. I'm ready to get out of this school!

Hey, you will get the football thing at every high school. I remember it 30 years ago when I was in school. There is something about the south and football, apple pie and stuff. I have 3 kids at Creekview this year. The all love it overall. My oldest 2 transferred from SHS and they said academically they are better off at CVHS. CVHS is ony one of the 2 high schools in the county to offer video broadcast classes. My son is taking engineering classes too. I think this is great to let them have a taste of what they might want to do or NOT want to do with their future decision making. The principal is great too!

Overall, a decent school.. No great, not terrible. The main problem I see is that football players and other athletes are allowed to do as they please with teachers and administration turning a blind eye.

This is an excellent school. There are several clubs for kids to join and the teachers are outstanding. There is also an interesting amount of classes like weight training that wasn't available at his other high school. My son told me he likes school now, he gets A's and B's, whereas before I had to drag him out of bed in the morning, he is eager to go to school each day. I love this school!
