My name is Tonya Goins, i went to Yellow Creek from preschool until 8Th grade. I miss this school so much. I loved waking up every morning and going to this school. I am going to send my child to this school and i would reccomend any parent to send there children to this school. The teachers are very caring they will help you with as much as they can, its like one big happy family and if i could i would go back in a heart beat

I went to yellow creek elementary back when it went to 8th grade i was in the last 8th grade class that they had and it prepared me for most of life's lessons. Most of the teachers there really cared about us students. My name was penny salyers at the time

Yellow Creek isn't a very fair school. They have a lot of favoritism amongst teachers and students. I have been at Yellow Creek since preschool, I am now an 8th grader, so I know how Yellow Creek is.

my child attends this school, and I am impressed with everything at this school. Last year, my child attended a city school, and although they are higher ranked, I feel that my child receives a better education at Yellow Creek.

I place my son in Yellow Creek in the 4th, from a local private school. I was very impressed with the past vice principal on how she worked with me and my son before the decision was made. Even still, being in his 3 year at Yellow Creek,academically they have teachers ( speaking from my son's grade levels only) that really care that the child gets an education, not just being able to pass the KCTS tests. There is a need for improvement in there extracurricular activities, but it appears to be on the way up. Parent involvement is nil to none. If I had to change schools again, it still would be a hard decision to match the level of education that my son is receiving to another school.

My child has been at Yellow Creek for a couple of months now. I belive that changing schools with him is the best decision I have made in a while. The teachers there seem to really enjoy what they do. This is the first time he has been in a school where if there is a problem,educational or otherwise, you are notified immediately. This is the first time he has been offered an incentive to get good grades and then be recognized for it. Thannks again to all the faculty and staff that have made this such a wonderful and easy transition for me and my son.
