Scott's Creek Elementary School is amazing. The teachers are educationally dedicated, on target with each student, highly involved on every level, concerned, caring and completely professional. We are very happy with the implementation of the academic program. Most importantly, my granddaughter feels safe at her school.

Scotts Creek is the best elementary school in Jackson County. My granddaughter has attended since kindergarten and after homeschooling for one year due to personal issues we are back

The administration of this school is not friendly and they share personal information with others. The priciple is not involved and stays hidden most of the time leaving everything to the assistant who does an exceptional job of being a Condescending northern asse. Some of the teachers seem genuine but there could be improvement. Given the fact that many have left recently would be a direct reflection on the principle and what a sour asse she is to be under. One would wonder when the Jackson County school board will ever wake up and see what a negative effect she has on skilled staff retention.

SCS is a school that we have been impressed with so far. Our son has attended k-2 grade and the school administration is well organized, with very pleasant staff and great teachers. Students work hard and are rewarded in positive ways. Our son loves the school. I do think they could use more field trips and if the kids could go and learn outside more, I would be even happier.

This is the best elementary school in the county. The school would benefit from having a larger library (I realize cost is an issue, especially currently) and it would be very beneficial to have the class information (homework assignments, textbook lists, etc.) posted on the school website.

this school runs really well as a system; I am amazed at the organization there; however, they don't do enough field trips (none this year for Kindergarten yet)

They are not up-to-date as far as web interaction is concerned. I have searched other schools since we are contemplating moving and in South Carolina in Greenville county, all of the schools have what each grade level is doing as well as the homework assignments in case the students have to miss class. They do things in a hurry and wait until the last minute to contact the parent.

I have two children that attend Scott's Creek school and I believe it is the best school in Jackson County. I admire Dr. Fernandez and her qualities that she brings to the school. She is very professional and appears to care for each child.

I truely believe it depends on the teacher you get at Scotts Creek. The kindergarten and very lower grade teachers have been fabulous, however the middle grade teachers are not so great and do not listen to the students or parents. I have two children attending Scotts Creek at this time and feel it could certainly use some improvement in the middle and upper grades.

I have had 3 children attend Scotts Creek and for the most part it is a wonderful school. I do wish that the principal would promote the athletic program a little more. I would like to see us being able to be more competitive with the other schools. The academic program,I believe, is outstanding! Thank you teachers and staff.

Very caring and competent faculty. All students are pushed hard because some parents are uninvolved at home and school. Gifted kids do well, sports are not promoted, challenged kids get excellant help. A wonderful school for most.
