I agree with the bad reviews of this school. The principal and staff put children as their lowest priority. While the building is new and clean, the leadership is lacking. The principal, admin and teachers are only about their paychecks/tenure. Someone needs to clean house and hire teachers who want to educate children. This is one example of why public schools are failing....no accountability and lack of interest from those in charge. My child attended for 2-years and it was 2-years too long.
Caleb's Creek Elementary School is incredible! The teachers are very experienced and truly care about ALL children! The prinicipal, Mrs. Jones, outshines all others! The energy and positive spirit in the building are evident everyday! I know my child is well taken care of emotionally, socially and academically! Keep up the good work, Caleb's Creek!
I agree with all the negative reviews. Having 3 children & buying supplies makes it hard when you think your done just to be told that you HAVE to pay $15 for supplies the teacher has picked out-I pay $15 for all 3! Not to mention the added stress it puts on children who don't want to get in trouble for not having the "schools supplies". My son has ADHD & the principal told me she would put him on a specific plan for his needs only to find out she never did. They only want money & as far as I'm concerned the technology is NOT an advntage when compared to their old school that we are moving back to that ws a traditional school with the BEST teachers & staff.
My oldest was at another local school for kindergarten and it was terrible so we relocated to Caleb's Creek and could not be happier. Two of my children are here now one in kindergarten and one in first grade, both of them have excelled since changing schools.They keep parents informed with weekly calls about school activities and reminders. There are many activities to get involved in even around a busy parent's schedule and the teachers are very attentive to each student.
Love Calebs Creek I have two kids there and another one that will be going soon :)
If moving here good school to go to. Great Library. Spacious school. Car line deals with safety pretty well. Teachers caring. State of the Art technology . Good support staff. Clean school. Good janitors. Nice lunch room. Nice grounds. Good PTA. Kids listen well. Happy Kids.
good school. would not go anywhere else. Principal cares about staff, students. Teachers care about students.
The staff of Caleb's Creek has obviously been leaving good reviews to manipulate the rating of this school. This doesn't surprise me one bit and greatschools.org should do something to moniter it. I told the story of how my son was bullied by a group of boys and then brushed off by the teacher and it was magically flagged and removed the next day with two new glowing reviews. The principal is good buddies with all the teachers and will not believe you when you try to complain about how innapropriate and unprofessional the teachers are. Furthermore, the staff is rude the teachers will not tell you anything about your child's progress until after they decide to fail them. Stay away if you can! We are moving out of the area and it is well worth it to change schools.
My children started at Caleb's Creek when it opened. I have now experienced every grade level except for Kindergarten. My kids love CCES as much as I do. One of my children has a severe learning disability and is worked with so well at CCES. He loves going to school now because he feels part of the whole community. His teachers work with him on learning his way instead of what works for most children. I am very active on the PTA and have met so many wonderful parents who give so freely of their time and efforts to make Caleb's Creek Elementary the Best Elementary school around. As far as not following the NC curriculum set up by the state is 100% inaccurate. The teachers follow all guidelines laid before them. I feel school is like life and you truly get out of it what you put into it. I feel blessed to be part of such a wonderful school and more than that family. Thank you to all of the wonderful teachers, faculty and staff who work tirelessly to prepare our children for the future.
My child has attended Caleb's Creek since it opened and is a fifth grader. We have had a very positive experience. The school is not only beautiful to look at, it is a family. The students safety and success is always top priority. Fourth grade was a wonderful year for my child. And, the study of NC was outstanding. The curriculum at Caleb's Creek follows the guidelines of the state. You couldn't ask for more dedicated teachers, who truly enjoy teaching. I am very proud to be a part of Caleb's Creek and will be saddened when we move on to Middle School.
I believe these reviews should be fair and should reflect what children and parents are experiencing and what their thoughts are. We have lived in several different states and have experiences with quite a few schools. This school does give me a deep concern. Starting with text books and other teaching materials. They don t seem to exist. I had to contact teachers repeatedly to get some answers. Communications from teachers are something to be desired. And if you need any additional, their attitude is usually your kid is not the only one here. It s your kid, your issue, not my problem. Sometimes, this school makes me wonder are these kind of schools behind the reason that our kids are so behind in math and science compare to other countries!
My child will be going into the third grade this year. We are so fortunate that Caleb's Creek opened the year she started kindergarten!! The teachers are awesome and the principal is very involved in the school and truly knows all the families. We couldn't be happier anywhere else!!!
My youngest son is getting ready to begin Kindergarten after two years of receiving speech services at this school and our oldest son has had a wonderful experience his first two years at Caleb's Creek. The school has such a warm, welcoming environment to parents as well as students. The principal and teachers are focused on teaching the curriulum but also put the emphasis on the kids. You feel such a sense of community when you walk in the building and you know your children are well taken care of!
my daughter is about to start kindergarten and she is so excited and from the looks of it caleb's creek is going to make it a great experience for her!!
calebs creek looks like a great school for my daughter to start kindergarten in we cant wait!
We love Caleb's Creek!! We have AMAZING Principal, Teachers and Staff!! I wouldn't want my children to go anywhere else!!
Wonderful teachers, staff, and principal! This is my daughter's second year at Caleb's Creek and she loves it!
