Creekside has a lot of great teachers. My kids have had a good experience there. I appreciate the diversity and the PTA is excellent. For whatever reason Creekside is on its 4th principal since it opened. I think this has kept Creeksidevfrom excelling in some areas.
Best school ever. People are nice. It's a nice place. Love it more than any other school.
Front office has wonderful people working; Teachers are great and understanding and they do their Best. My son has been in AIG program sice the Mid 2nd grade, this year he is graduating 5th grade, very please with their program; we will miss all of them dearly : (
The school is good, not great. Homework is redundant each week, so the kids get bored. My children rarely finish lunch, because of there just isn't enough time. They've learned, but not as much as I would like for them to learn; we work with them at home just to keep their interest and skills progressing.
Our child is in Kindergarten at Creekside and has had a wonderful experience there. His teacher and TA are excellent and the classroom is fun, under control, and educational. The students are well-behaved and nice. The administration is responsive and friendly, and the extra classes (music, art, library) are great. We even like the Durham Public Schools after-school program. We considered private schools, but are really glad that we went with Creekside instead and recommend it.
Creekside has wonderful diversity of families that all share a common goal: quality education for our children.
Creekside has a wonderful staff, and a great diversity of students. The Creekside PTA is a strong organization which helps bring important events to the school like the international night, science fair, etc.. Overall, my kids have had a great learning experience at Creekside.
In the education field, genuinely caring for children is a requirement. And the teachers at Creekside have kind hearts that allow them to go the extra mile to help our students learn and grow. And I cannot forget the students! They are a wonderful group of children who desire to become better and better everyday. Even our students with various challenges and obstacles have that strong desire to succeed---in spite of setbacks. Go Creekside Eagles!!! :)
It is all about the children. The pride that we have for our school under any kind of adversity. The children that are eager to learn and have a thirst for knowledge, participation and commitment to do their very best.
i love the people at creekside - teachers, parents, kids, administrators. they are diverse and friendly. like an extended family.
teachers are wonderful and the administration team is the best in the entire district. parents support the school ijn many ways
My kindergartener is engaged in her class every day. Her teacher and teacher's assistant have helped her ease into a totally new environment with very few hiccups.
My daughter is a third grader at Creekside and she has been in love with the school since Kindergarten. Very comfortable learning environment and the faculty and staff are so supportive and encouraging.
Wonderful principal and staff!! Great attitudes among everyone that I come across. My child has had the best teachers, and has improved greatly academically.
Creekside is a fantastic school that truly focuses on the best for the kids. The administration and staff recognize that they can't be perfect, but they go the extra mile to make things as perfect for the kids educational experiences as possible. The diversity is amazing and the care of the teachers & staff for the students is better than you will ever find any where.
My son loves Creekside. I can't believe how much he has learned in just a few weeks.
Creekside is a great place to send your child to be educated. There are many caring teachers that really want to teach and not just collect a check.
