I love this school and so do my daughter. Day 1 every person at Pates Creek have been pleasant to work with. The teachers are aware of their students and note changes in class work right away to assure students success.

I feel so lucky to be in this school district! Great principles, great teachers, great staff! Such a wonderful atmosphere ALL THE TIME! My girls attend Pate's Creek and my youngest has learning difficulties, the administration has been so proactive in addressing her issues and I am so thankful for all of them!

The principal is excellent. They offer several extra-cirriculum activities. The school is always clean. The children learn so much in all subjects. I was impressed what was brought home for homework. Some schools focus only on Math and Reading. This school offers fun activities outside of class . They go over and beyond on activities. This is a great school for learning. Their sage (gifted) is challenging not just a coloring course. The office staff is okay. My only 2 complaint is some of their staff is not that friendly such as Asst Principal, Counselor, and few others. Please pack your child's lunch because the lunches are horrible.

We moved our daughter to Pate's Creek in January of 2009 from a local private school. Although we were nervous, it has turned out to be one of the best decisions we have made. My daughter has an exceptional kindergarten teacher and we've found that everyone at Pate's Creek is extremely helpful and focused on the needs of the children. I am an educator in a nearby system so I had many options for where to place my child. Our decision to move to PCE was based on negative experiences at a private school up the road where children were expected to fit in a 'box' and were scolded when they were different or required attention beyond what ws typical. Pate's Creek has been a wonderful experience and I recommend it to anyone over the other local public and private schools in the area.

This school is a very good representation of what America actually looks like. Not only is it diverse, it is a school directed by one of the most sincere 'child advocates' Ms. Flournoy. She is fair and methodical in her approach to most any situation. She is a problem-solver and keeps the needs of the child at the center of any conflict. Furthermore, her staff is as focused on education as she is.

My daughter went to Pates Creek for two years. I was really impressed with the interaction between the students and the Principal, Ms. Flournoy. She is fair, caring and attentive to the needs of the students and the Parents and that is a true sign of someone who really cares about the quality of education your child receives. I hope that Ms. Flournoy, her staff and the students continue to have many more successful years!

I love Pate's Creek. We moved to PCE from a school that we were very unhappy with. Before school started, I met with Ms. Flournoy to express my concerns over our previous school experience, and she was extremeley nice, helpful, and honest with me. My 2 girls started this year and have been so very happy. The teachers and office staff are very friendly and genuinely care about the children. The parent organization really gets things done! We know we made the right choice in relocating and recommend PCE to anyone moving into the area!

Pate's Creek is and awesome school! I love it so much that even though we had the opportunity to move into a beautiful home,I chose to stay in our apartment. The schools in the house's district could not compare. The administration always greet you with a smile. The ladies in the front office are always nice and helpful. The school nurse is so kind and caring. Mrs. Johnson is so sweet and patient with the Kindergarteners. My daughter loves Mrs. Jones 1st). She went from being in the Early Intervention Program to being one of the top Math students in her class and reads at a 3rd grade reading level. Mr. Peterson is my son's favorite teacher of all time. He's not only extremely intelligent and witty, but really funny and kind. He makes learning fun.

Our daughter has been at Pate's Creek since kindergarten. Her teachers have been excellent and have encouraged that same excellence in their students. I have never walked my daughter into school without seeing either Ms. Flournoy or Mr. Gore at the front door greeting each student. My daughter's favorite classes each year are music and art. I cannot be more sincere when I say that our experience with Pate's Creek has been exceptional. Whether with her teachers or the principal, we have always been able to communicate freely and without hesitation. Our questions have always been answered and our concerns always addressed. Parental involvement may be low but the staff at Pate's Creek encourages it at every level. Pate's Creek Elementary school is a wonderful place for a child to get an exceptional education.

My daughter has been in Pates Creek since Kindergarten. We are very pleased with the school and the staff. Her teacher this year is Mrs. Shwartz (2nd Grade) she is wonderful. We were a little nervous when school began because it is such a change from first grade but the teacher has really helped make it a great transition. We are very pleased with the school and would tell anyone to make sure that they move to an area where their child can attend the school (it is wonderful). Thanks Pates Creek!

Our son is in First Grade this year, I as a former teacher myself (not at Pates Creek), I can tell you that Pates Creek Elem. is a top notch school! My son loves his teacher and the administrators are always visible, which is important to us as parents. If you choose this school, consider yourself 'at home'.That is the way they will make you feel. As far as not knowing your childs day to day work with their curriculum, it's called 'communication'. If you make an effort to be involved in your children's lives and let the teacher know you are doing your job, he/she will give their 100% to make your child's year there be the best it can be. Everyone should be accountable when it comes to your child's education....even your child. Parent involevment is just above average, and is improving.

We are currently considering relocating to North Carolina and I'm anxious to find a school just like Pate's Creek. The admin. staff especially the Principals are great, parent involvement makes this school one of the best in Henry Co.
