Profile Completeness

INTERMEDIATE

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

My grandson is in third grade. Fifty plus children in the classroom...but there are two teachers (so what?). Two teachers, two different teaching styles. Fifty kids is too many for any one area.

This is an excellent school with staff that really cares about the students. There have been a few principals through the years, but the current one (Joanna Sharp) is just exceptional. The location itself is in a nice area with plenty of room for all of the kids to run and play. My daughter attends 4th grade there and my son was there from 2003-2005

My son will be attending this school in the fall and I wanted to say that I find it very suspicuious that the first 7 pages of reviews were written over a very short time span, with multiple reviews on one day, Very strange!

The parent group is very active and provides enormous support to the students, parents & staff. Mr. V is a wonderful principal. We are happy to be apart of this excellent school!

I love Creekside for numerous reasons. One of those reasons is our principal, Mr. V..he knows the children by their first name, is outside every day to greet both students and parents, he gives parents a call at home to give them updates on what is happening with our students and in our school! The staff at Creekside is another huge factor in the way Creekside is run..they are the ones to teach our children to have goals instead of dreams, because the goals can be accomplished and that is what we aim for! Creekside is the Best!
