This school is a great school. Many kids come out of Creek Valley with high test scores and continue on in middle/high school finely. My child will be in accelerated math (pre-algebra) thanks to Creek Valley! Oh and the carnival is a perfect funding thing where both kids and teachers get something out of it!

High level of communication and volunteer help is awesome each year there is a huge carnival where the children have fun and the school earns money because of the raffle where kids can win prizes! Come join this school!
