I've been really happy and pleasantly surprised by Creedmoor Elementary. Initially I was reluctant because I saw negative scores online, and went so far as say out loud in my local store that I didn't want my daughter there. That's why I'm compelled to right that wrong, because the teachers and staff have shown quality and dedication. My kindergarten teacher Ms. Layton has been excellent, and my daughter's reading has improved dramatically. In terms of test scores from the school and then considering demographics, it would make sense if scores at the earliest level of education would be impacted by having English as a second language for example. Alternatively, this means many of the children there know 2 languages already and therefore perhaps should be considered advanced.
Taking all sides, I have seen some negative reviews online, and my advice would be to take my story as one of many, I'm sure there are also teachers here who are not quality. I would say if you're a parent considering taking your child here, then request a visit to speak with the staff and principle so you can make an informed decision for yourself.
That way you don't judge a book by its cover.
We had to move our children a couple of years ago from Creedmoor Elem. The teachers are a hard working and caring group, albeit over worked. The ever revolving principals tend to do what they can, perhaps if the school district would leave one there for a few years they could get something done. But the nature of the enrollees makes the job difficult. A disproportionately high level of students with very limited english abilities, and far to many others coming in unprepared for school, makes the jobs of the teacher impossible. We had some very good teachers when we were there, but they seemed to have to spend all their time trying to bring the underperforming students up to level, and had very little time to spend working with the others. Creedmoor Elementary should be a gem of what is a very nice community, it has, however, become a bit of an eyesore academically.
