Best school ever. Admin is awesome. Teachers are awesome. Only 2 disadvantages: you have to live in Westlake to be in the gifted program and if you're child has even the slightest learning disability like my son has dyslexia, there is absolutely NO help whatsoever. They will literally run you out if they think you bring down the test scores. Thank god we have am excellent private psychologist.

For me and my family, Stevens Creek Elementary is the best public school in the CSRA. From an academic perspective, it is above par. In addition, parent and community support is great. These are the components we need for our children to have great success in school and in life. Administrators are ver helpful. The best.

best school i have ever seen,heard and been taught at. ;) They have the best staff and a wonderful way of teaching.Everyone has a method of teaching which exceeds excellence.I would recommend this school to any body i would stumble across on.

This school has by far the best qualified teachers in the county, with that being said, they deserve a pay raise. Great teachers need to be rewarded based on the performance of their students. This school certainly produces great results at all levels. My daughter and most students in this school are the results of superb discipline and instruction-the proof is in the pudding. Someone in the county seat needs to make this happen ASAP.

My son has really don well in this school. He has attended since Kindergarten and each year it gets better. His teacher's are great. His 2nd grade teacher, Mrs McMahan is outstanding and has really motivated him to achieve higher standards. You cannot go wrong with this school. It's the best.

The staff & teachers are superb!!! Every single person at the school really cares about the students. They spot potential issues a child is having early on & address it ensuring the childrens success in school. It is truly the best elementary school & we are fortunate that our children are in their care!

I love Stevens Creek Elementary School because they are teaching my cousins to be the best people they can be. It's a great school!

My grandson is a student. He has great teachers and other staff that are dedicated to education for each child. They are teaching Spanish to lst graders through a program that is funded by the PTO and other projects. Where else could a child receive such devotion from dedicated teachers. They are a Class act.

The education, teachers and support staff are top notch. It is by far the best public elementary school in all of Columbia County. Having a strong language arts program like Spanish, helps get the students experience early in life. The music and arts programs are excellent and allow the students to be creative, strong character building tool in life. A strong sense of community with a PTO that is engaged in making it a better place. Stevens Creek Elementary makes our community a better place.

The school is run perfectly - happy children, well-educated children, well-behaved children! And the teachers are all incredible!

The amount of genuine concern, proactive planning, and all around care towards my daughter's academics. She was in need of academic assistance and Stevens Creek provided the programs that have made her succeed. Her previous school did not have nearly the organized support that Stevens Creek has. I was also impressed with the additional programs such as Spanish, Art, and music..etc. Wonderful school! A parent's delight
