Plymouth Creek Elementary School3

Plymouth Creek Elementary teachers were incredible. We are leaving the district now that we are done with the elementary years. If you have a home under $500, 000 you will be a minority and the district WILL treat you differently. We had a horrible busing experience because we lived in a townhome. If you can pay for private lessons for your child in any activity than your child has a CHANCE to be in an activity in high school. If 1 high school teacher knows your child name, than you made progress. Size of the high school is equal to a community college. Your child's graduating class will be close to 1000. The reason Wayzata school district is ranked so high is because all year the students prepare for the state tests and take practice tests almost monthly, my children were constantly stressed about these tests and they are in elementary school, too young to be stressed about tests and scores. Huge minority population, which raises tests scores on one end and on the other hand forces the teachers to concentrate on children that do not speak English.
We had a boundry change and my son (5th Grader) had a choice to move to Plymouth Creek if he wanted to, We went to the open house and my son liked the school ambience. The transition was so smooth, my kid did'nt feel like he was a new student throughout his school year. The kids were great and welcomed him,he enjoyed his whole year (It was a big relief for us as parents as our son was always picked on/bullied in his previous school) We have a first grader who is thoroughly enjoying Plymouth Creek. Thanks to all the staff and members of Plymouth Creek
My Son has had an excellent year at Plymouth Creek. We were not sure whether to start him in K this year or hold him back since he is one of the younger kids. We were not dissapointed, as his teacher was able to inspire him to learn every day. He is excited to go to school and we could not be happier.
