I have found the administration and teachers at Cross Creek to be very caring and supportive. Teachers go the extra mile to help students and parents.

I think that this school is great. My son has had some difficulties in the past , and wasn't getting the proper amount of help that he needed. He is now getting A's & B's which put's him on the Honor Roll. He has also recieved recognition for other achievments as well. He really likes his teachers, and is making alot of friends.

The staff does not encourage arent involvement. Teachers do not seem concerned when grades begin to drop. I am very disappointed in this school.

A complete disappointment with the over all experiences. My 1st. bad experience was when I called to talk to my son. The school's replied was 'the students are not allowed to use the phone at all.' My 2nd experience was when I talked to my son's teacher. She was very cold and short with any specific question I had. His teacher stated that she would send weekly e-mails with news letters about the classroom. I have still not received any e-mails or news letters. So I have sent her a few e-mails requesting news letter and she has not replied to any of the e-mails I had sent her. This is not the type of teacher we expect in the classroom.

This school has many problems, from the principal to counslors to many of the teachers. If your child goes to this school be catious! There are only a few good teachers. The majority are not caring. The principal is not any parents friend.

What a wonderful school. The faculty and staff really cares for my child. I wish that all students could attend school in such a positive environment.

This is the one school in the area that I can honestly say puts the kids first. Everyone at Cross Creek is above exceptional. They work hard, they strive for the best and they are the very best.
