This school looks nice inside and out. However my child's teacher didn't care if she learned.I kept trying to get help no one cared.I asked if my child could receive before or after school help, the teacher replied I have a 2yr old I'm just barely getting through the door. Now I thought this was highly inappropriate for a teacher to say. You would be shocked at how much I asked for my child to be helped.The teacher just kept telling me not to worry. about a month of school left she tells me my child is endanger of failing.... Smh. I'm like really? When I've been asking you how everything is going. The lady would have her phone out in class texting on it. Now how does that look while she should be teaching. They also do not like for the parents to be in the school, which I think is crazy. Yes I do understand security issues and that's great. They call the teacher before you even come to the classroom that's if you get to go inside the classroom. I feel like this is a if your doing something heads up type thing. You would be surprised at how much parents catch when popping up unannounced. I had to pull my child out after the first year.

Snow Creek Elementary is a great school. My son is now in 1st grade and we are extremely pleased with the school. I am involved with PTO and we do raise a lot of money and it all goes right back into the school. My son has had 2 amazing teachers so far and the "feel" of the school is so helpful and wonderful. We are excited to have our child at this school for several more years. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a nice, neat school where the teachers (and all staff honestly) are fantastic. Their after school program is fantastic as well

This school is awesome! The teachers care about the children and take time to even help them after school. there are also many services with in the school that help kids. There are three state-of-the-art computer labs at the school and they offer art, fitness, and music. The principle and assistant principal are present throughout the school.

Snow Creek is an excellent school for learning. My child just started 2nd grade there. He started there in kindergarten and he learned so much in just the first few weeks of school and he has been excelling ever since. This is all due to the wonderful teaching staff. They are very good at what they do. The Principal and Assistant Principal are the best! My son lives them. They are very involved with everything that goes on at the school. Every staff memeber at Snow Creek always puts the students education and well being first. As for always wanting money, with the State budget the way it is, schools have to turn to other means for money to finance what the schools need. Usually the PTO is in charge of fundraising. Last year new playground equipment was purchased for both the K-2 and 3-6 playgrounds. This was purchased with money that the PTO had raised over a span of three years. Any money that is raised goes to the students in one way or another. This school is not all about money.

Not for my child,the teacher was the main reason why my child had some problems. Principle didn't care all he wanted to do was save face. The school looks great on the inside and out,but dnt be fooled. This school is all abt MONEY! You can get calls and emails on all the diff things tha will be going on so that they can raise money. Let your child need hlp with something noone is there. Money shldnt be this schools main goal. Im helping this school but its doing anything to help my child out or even let me know that their is a problem with my childs learning. Thus is not how a school should work. education first money last. Every wk the school ask fir some type of money... You would think they do not receive public funds,such ashame. After all the money I paid to help this school. Im happy to say my child will be attending a private school nxt,where teachers really care. If your really not into being a good teacher find a new job...why should our kids suffer bc that LAZY teacher.
