we have been at this school for 3 years now and i have to say it is the worst experience in a school i have ever had and coming from Florida that's BAD. The principal tells you what you wan to hear but does nothing and the teachers also hear what they want and they lable your child. I think they should be offering ideas as to how to assist your child but they don't and they actual find it funny when students don't get along to make sure they sit side by side. I would not recommend this school to anyone and if i could find a way out i would.
My daughter had a HORRIBLE kindergarten year at Bethel Elementary in Midland. Her 1st grade year & my son's kindergarten year at Running Creek we great! They were both very happy & got excellent grades. I don't JUST want them to learn, I want them to enjoy going to school, too & they do at Running Creek.
In the beginnning when were transferred from Ridgecrest School we fought the school board tooth & nail to stay at Ridgecrest. In theend the best thing for us was Running Creek. I have 3 kids there & when soon send a 4th. We have a great principal we can work with as parents & very involved teachers who are very qualified at their jobs. Our teachers hold many accrediations & are always furthering their careers. Our teachers don't stop learning themselves. We have great parents & volunteers who get things done for the best school in NC. From the office staff to the cafeteria all RCrk employees fill their jobs to the best of their abilities.
