I am exhilarated for my two children to start their second year at Euchee Creek Elementary. We are military and this is the fifth school they have attended. T the beginning last school year I just thought my kids really lucked out with great teachers that year. After volunteering some and gettin to know the staff I quickly realized that all the teachers are pretty amazing. They are a huge family... and that extends to the children! I can not speak highly enough about the staff. They are highly focused on creating a fun, creative and motivating system! They love encouraging their children to be excited about learning!! They should be rewarded for their efforts to reward good behavior instead of only monitoring bad behavior. This school is on a roll!! I say they should go full steam ahead in their intended path. My kids and their friends are excited for school to start because they MISS THEIR TEACHERS and are looking forward to earning their E-Tickets for good behavior. The music teacher is so happy to share the love of song and rythem. They have a rotating schedule of afterschool activities. The Euchee Creek Elementary staff truly are EGINEERING SUCCESS!!

Not my choice. With limited selections and school zoning rules I had to send my children to this school. I was not very pleased.

Euchee creek is Engineering Success!! This sweet school is the only Elemenatry school in Columbia county that I would allow to teach my children. I am welcomed anytime I enter the building, the employees (not only teachers)know me and my babies and I know they are always safe and ready to learn. I expect the utmost respect from my children and so do the great folks at ECE!! I love this school and would recommend buying a home in this area just so your children can attend school here. ECE rocks!!

This school is all about lots of talk and no action. This school does not take parental concerns seriously. They like to say things to pacify you for the moment let you know a situation will be taken care of but they don't follow through. Many incidents in the past 2 years have scared me about the safety of my children at this school. I wish we could choose where our kids can go to school because this school wouldn't be my choice. Unfortunately private school and such is not an option. I wish that it was. We need a better assistant principal and better 5th grade teachers. Shame on them

very unfriendly school, no activities for children like cedar ridge...and the lack of want to teach kids to speak the proper way in very disappointing, just because we are in the south do we have to talk so uneducated?

I AM DISGRACED BY A SCHOOL THAT TEACHES CHILDREN TO USE THE WORD "FIXING" INCORRECTLY...LIKE THE CLASS IS FIXING TO GO TO ART... THAT IS NOT PROPER AND IS CONSIDERED SLANG WHERE I COME FROM. YOU DO NOT FIX TO GO SOMEWHERE, FIX IS WHAT YOU DO WHEN SOMETHING IS BROKEN

This is the best school that I have ever been in. All of the teachers are awesome and so is the principal. I could never imagine my children going to a different school. My children love going to school everyday. It is absolutely great:))

Euchee Creek has an awesome faculty and has an environment which is conducive to learning. Each teacher has gone above and beyond our expectations and always acts to promote the best interest of every student. My children love this school! The principals know each child by name and is committed to ensuring that they succeed to their potential. Euchee Creek, you are truly engineering success!

Euchee Creek is an awsome school! I have never felt out of place or not welcome in this school. The teachers that I have delt with truly treat my child as if he is their only student. I have never pulled out of the school parking lot feeling uneasy about leaving my child there. I know that he is in very capable hands. Why this school was on the 'Needs to Improve' list for Georgia schools is beyond me!

Euchee Creek is a very good school. The quality of teachers is one of the best in Columbia County. They really care about the students and want them to excel in acedemics. The principal is concerned about doing a good job in the school, therefore, she is involved in all aspects of the learning process. If more of the parents would get involved in their childrens learning process, the school would be an excellent school. Too many of the children do not have enough input and concern from parents and this is what has put the school on the 'Needs to Improve' list for Georgia schools.

Euchee Creek is a great school. The staff is very personable and caring. They know each student and connect with the parents. Not only do they strive to provide the best education for the children but they put out that helping hand to the parents. With more parent envolvement there is no limit to what this school could accomplish.They always have that helping hand extended to the families of the children. My child has attended Euchee Creek since kindergarten and I have always been able to leave him and go to work with a great feeling of confidence and comfort that he will not only be safe but also treated like like he is one of their own. Thank you Euchee Creek. another parent

This school welcomes parents to come in and get involved. The principal is tough but fair. 98% of the teachers are not just good but outstanding. Half of the PTA board is teachers because they care so much about the kids. The only place with room for improvement does not actually lie with the school but with the parents. Even though they are welcomed to get involved too many do not do so. This little school puts on many programs for the parents and children and has won awards for its arts in education programs and last year even gave every child in the school a brand new book as school ended to promote summer reading. They really go the extra mile.
