Creekside High School has several professional educators and some dedicated parents. The new principal has done an excellent job of assembling an administrative staff that seems engage. However, he (the principal), doesn't. His passive approach to deal with situations head on makes one question his improvement plan communicated to parents upon beginning the school year. In this critical time, the school needs true and connected leadership verses an administrator that promotes the impression of being the "cool" guy.

Creekside has the potential to be a great school because it has some great teachers and students. However, the leadership is going through a transition. We have a good interim prinicipal but the new principal will have a few challenges to deal with such as, very little parent involvement, not meeting AYP the last few years and just changing the school culture to one that is nurturing, motivational and positive.

I rate the school a 4, The principal is very strict, teachers are good, I think there should be more parent involement with their children and the teachers and the school is overpoplulated.

School is over populated with very little learning going on. I would not send my child there.

I think that Creekside is a very good school. The administration has worked with my son and given him continuous opportunities to graduate. They just did not give up on him. I am proud to say that he will be graduating in May with the rest of his class. Thanks Creekside!!!!

Creekside High School is a very good school. The students take a lot pride in their extracurricular activities and academics and the sports' teams are champions. They have one of the best marching, concert, and jazz bands in South Fulton too. So I would highly recommend this school.
