I wish my child had transferred to Creek sooner! Great school! Dedicated and involved staff, outstanding academic and athletic programs, welcoming environment from administration. We have never regretted the decision to transfer from parochial to public school for a minute. My child went through K-10 in parochial school and did very well, but has blossomed at Tates Creek. The perception of Creek is not very favorable, perhaps due to its location in the middle of a neighborhood that has in the past seen more than its fair share of crime. That perception does a grave disservice to the staff and administrators, and most of all, the students. Go Creek
If you want to find a good school for your kids, just keep on driving, get a second job to pay for private school, or start a charter school! What a JOKE! Did you know that saying the F word is not considered cussing but saying the N word is? Did you know the teachers are on anti-depressants just to deal with the bullying from administrators and so-called students? Did you know fights, threats and assaults are commonplace? Come to Tates Creek and learn survival skills or let your kids fend for yourselves ....on your tax dollars . . . .
My two youngest attend Tates Creek High School. My 17-year old son loves it there, and before going to Tates Creek he hadn't liked school at all since second grade. My 15-year old son has also had a wonderful experience and he often shares what he's learned in his classes. The teachers are friendly and helpful, my sons' counselor is phenomenal, and the principal and other administrators are open and accessible to parents and students. Tates Creek offers a variety of programs so it's easy to tailor the high school experience to the needs of the individual student.
I love Tates Creek High School!!! They have been very helpful concerning my oldest daughter. Don't get me wrong, she loves school and knows she has to take certain classes, but she has had problems with Math and Science classes. They have given her extra help, let her take Plato and basically been there all the way for her. This school year she is pregnant and again they have been helpful and understanding, with her condition. She is keeping up with the classes and her counselor has everything ready for her when she takes off. I am proud of and thankful for all that have helped us along the way.
I am really pleased with the education my daughter is getting from Tates Creek High. Her father graduated from this school. The extracurricular activities are great. Overall I feel this is a great school
