I've had all 3 of my kids go through Rush Creek and they've all loved it. Excellent teachers, very helpful office staff, great parent involvement. One of my children needed extra medical help and the nurse and staff were amazing. The school is getting a new principle in 2015/16 year and we hope the quality of education and the friendly atmosphere stays the same.

I teach at Rush Creek Elementary. It is a high performing school where all of the staff is 100% dedicated to doing what is best for kids. The staff is easy to approach about any topic and all really seem happy to be there working with their students.

My child flourished at this school and has lasting friendships with his classmates who still attend this school, but I removed him from this school because it teaches messages of racial inferiority without a second thought. When his second grade teachers showed video footage of dark skinned people being attacked by dogs, guns, bats, and water hoses, I knew it was time to remove him from this school. Because of this video, and a video showing light skinned children stating "I hate black people", my child spent Martin Luther King weekend of 2012 crying and in fear that the things shown in those videos could happen to him. Then later in that calendar year, my child learned in a lesson on the Olympics that "Marion Jones went to prison for putting drugs in her body", yet he couldn't tell us who Jesse Owens, Flo Jo, Michael Johnson, Carl Lewis, etc. are. Isn't it interesting that the one Olympic athlete of color about whom he learned is associated by this school with negativity? This is subtly teaching that dark skinned people are bad and inferior. Though we had a great first grade teacher here, Rush Creek overall is a huge disappointment regardless of how high its test scores may be.

This school is amazing...high degree of parental involvement and the teachers are great. It is basically a private school.

As a parent of children who attend this school, I am not pleased. The standards for children are continuously lowered. If students are not meeting the schools expectations, complete subjects are removed from their curriculum. Rush Creek only teaches to the test to receive the funding, they have little concern for who my child is as a person or what is in their best interest.

Rush Creek Elementary is a tough school. Their academic level is one of the highest. The teachers are great with their students,if they can't work with some of them on a one to one basis, they find a volunteer that will work with them. The teachers and staff show a great deal of concern for each one of their kids. This school puts a lot of effort in not only the kids but also the parents. This school does a great job on the safety and well being of each person that walks in to that school and is great about checking up on those who miss school. I am a proud parent who has been given all the resources the school has to offer my child to catch up on his learning and he has come along way since last year, because of the wonderful teachers that Rush Creek staffs. Thanks, Sincerely Lisa H.
