Clear Creek Elementary School 5

My child has special needs and requires an IEP at school. We moved to the De Soto school district right before he started Kindergarten. He has excelled at Clear Creek, and I give full credit to the teachers and administration that have worked so hard to assist him in doing so. We went from a school district that was going to throw in the towel and put my child in a "special needs only" classroom all day, to a school that assists him in being in his homeroom as much as possible. I would recommend this school and school district to anyone. They are amazing!

My son has attended CCE since kindergarten and is currently in 5th grade. As the end of his last year approaches I can reflect on his entire experience. I am EXTREMELY satisfied with his education at CCE! He started kindergarten after being enrolled in the DeSoto District preschool program. He had some special needs and was on an IEP until the end of 3rd grade. His progress has been phenomenal! I credit the dedication and love of the staff for his amazing progress. He's gone from the kindergartener who needed que cards of an eye and ear (to remind him to look and listen to the teacher) taped to his desk, to a 5th grader receiving all A's and participating in the excelled math program. Homework is almost daily, usually a math worksheet. Some of the special projects do require parent help, but they can be fun to work on together. My one complaint is that I don't care for their official grading system. It's rather subjective. Students receive a ranking of 1 to 4, which is based on the teacher's impression, not on a grade percentage. In preparation for middle school 5th grade teachers starting giving letter grades, this has been a big motivator for my son.

We moved her in 4-05 and have not been happy with this school or the Dist. The teachers send home a lot of homework, but does not teach the students how to do the work. The get assignments such as to write a paper on someone from history, but they hve not been taught how to write a paper in proper form. They do not show how to research the paper. I have a child with major medical problems and will homeschool this child, as I feel they are not able to step up to the task. Now, he Paras, office staff and the nurse are really good people and I do think the world of them.

This is a great school, and school district. My older son just passed on to Middle School, and my youngest is going into the 3rd grade. I highly recommend this school district.

The administration pushes down too many nonacademic lip-service programs, which forces the teachers to push homework. My first-grader does an extraordinary amount of homework. The school day runs from 9am-4pm; the late start makes it hard to fit in life beyond homework before bedtime. Less clutter in the schedule, more 3-R's work in school, and an earlier start would fix a lot. This appears to be a grossly mismanaged school district. Attention flies around depending on the latest test scores. They push reading hard, including mandatory home reading paperwork that parents must file or watch their child be ostracized at school, but math lies fallow for long stretches. Then suddenly they engage in a flurry of catchup, mostly homework. There's weekly spelling quizzes on words that must be learned entirely at home. Send you child to Clear Creek and you can home school them at the same time.

Clear Creek Elementary has all of the bases covered and it is apparent why they have been recognized nationally. The principal does many creative things to inspire the students. The teachers help the students to learn through a multitude of techniques that make learning fun and seemingly much easier. Everybody who knows the school loves the school.
