Clear Creek Elementary School. I am very impressed with this school. My daughter is a 1st grader there and they have already seen her potential to learn and have put her in Talent Development Classes. I was very shocked by this since I have heard so many horror stories about CMS. I volunteer at the school with the Wells Fargo Reading program and other things they have. I will continue to keep an close eye on my daughter progress and ask lots of question when I feel the need arises. Kandi W.
Clear Creek. My probelm with this school is that they pair up kids to do work and this has not been good for my child working with a child that does not want to be at school and is very aggravating in class and to my chid. My child is in the TD class and is finally getting some education instead of going over the same things everyday. The problem is this class is not long and should be several hours if they are going to be in there. Not much disclipline with problem children. But I guess they are not allowed to make some kids respect others and the teacher. Sad day for our schools in America God has been taken out.
Great principal and teachers and good atmosphere. I love the way how teachers integrated special needs children in the school.
The new principal is making some positive changes. The teachers show care. The con is this school lacks technology. I know students in schools that are in high Title One rated areas and considered "inner-city" schools that have access to better technology than the Clear Creek students. If the school will not offer more technology access I hope they will offer a foreign language.
This school lacks technology and is extremely diverse. Not that diversity is necessarily bad, but when it interferes with your child's education....it is bad. The teachers have to constantly reprimand bad students and their are a lot of students that can not even speak English. Yes, that interferes with my child's education BIG TIME! We homeschooling until we can sell our home!
We first looked at clear creek in 2009, we had pretty much decided to go with a private school. After a series of events with employment we had to seriously consider public school. We looked at the scores, toured the school and met with the principal. We were impressed and comfortable if our child had to transition to CMS through Clear Creek. Shortly after his kindergarten start, Dr. Ritchie left and the school has been in transition since. We were fortunate to have a good kindergarten and excellent first grade teacher, who identified our child for a catalyst program, in which they met with the Talent Development teacher during the week. Second grade was a different story and has changed my childs outlook on education. The teacher was not caring, condensending, played favorites and really seemed like she did not want to be there. We were on our 3rd principal (an interim principal), it seemed like no one was addressing our concerns. The school lacks alot of modern technology, that other schools have at the elementary level. Although I love the new principal and think she will be good for the school, you should definitely do your research before sending your kids here.
We have been at Clear Creek for two years and absolutely love it. We are especially impressed how the TD department for gifted children is being used to challenge my gifted daughter. They are always available to talk to you about any concerns.
This school is wonderful!!!! We moved here a few months ago from another NC town and WOW! I was afraid moving to a larger city would decrease my childs education. Not at Clear Creek. Teachers, principal and staff are top notch. My child LOVES school.
This school has been wonderful for our children! The staff are all top notch. It has the 'country' small town feel. Yet, the school is diverse and keeps up with the modern day technology. We can not say enough about this school. It is the gem of CMS.
We moved here from California 1 1/2 years ago. From day one, I was impressed with the caring staff and faculty of the school and the initiative students took to make my children feel welcome. The school has also taken steps to make sure each of my children has his specific academic needs met. Whenever I have questions staff and faculty have been very helpful and responsive. Although I am unable to be very involved at the school, I do know other mothers who are. The whole atmosphere is one of community and helps maintain the small-town feel we love so much about Mint Hill.
Great school, Principal is very approachable. Staff(including front office) is very caring.
