Elm Creek Elementary School1

M poor daughter has the terrible misfortune of being a student at this mockery of a school. My once happy-go-lucky, school-loving nine -year old know comes home in tears and thinks her teacher is terrible. The class sizes are too large, students don't have the connection with the teacher they deserve, and the teachers are running on fumes and don't even know your child's name. Find a way, ANY way to find another school for your kids to go to. One where they'll actually learn something!
Love the small community feel of this school. Nestled in a great neighborhood, this school has many kids who walk or bike to school. The kids are friendly and the staff are amazing. Although we have moved on they love to go back to volunteer for bingo or the carnival. Teachers and the principal know kids and families by name. My kids were well-prepared for school when they left Elm Creek. Can't say enough good things about this school.
This school is a good example why are children are failing. All three of my kids spent a year there and couldn't wait to get out of there. They were bullied and when we would try to go in and talk to staff about the problem they never actually fixed the problem. They just swept it under the rug. My daughter had an accident on the playground and hit her head. When she came home she seemed a little disoriented. When we asked her what was wrong she said sha had fallen at recess and hit her head on ice. She had a concussion. No call from the nurse or note letting us no that. I have kids on IEP and they would not follow them. One of the worst schools around in my opinion
