This School has a great way of supporting the students. My Grandchild is a student at the school and she has grown to be a confident little person. She has support from the bus driving to the lunch room. She is hearing impaired and works hard on learning new material. The teachers are so great their name rings in my home all the time. The custodian of this Great School greets my grand daughter as if she was a member of his family. Each student is awarded for any acommplishments that they have, this gives them encouragement to strife for more. I can see the learnership that is developing in my granddaughter, I believe she will be a teacher.

I love Creekside Elementary. This was my 1st year here with a kindergarten. I am amazed at the direction & support given by their faculty and staff. I hate to start naming names because I will miss some that were so good to us but Ms Frinsko, Ms Bynum, Ms Keel and Ms Johnson were true blessings for our family. You definitely made this a good year for us! We can't wait to start the new year!

This school has a real problem with bullying. Unfortunately, the biggest bully in the school is the principal's own child. Which, of course, means that nothing is done about it. It's a shame and puts otherwise decent teachers in an awkward situation. Would you want to discipline your boss' child? Apparently, these teachers don't want to either. It could've been a terrific school. The administration prevents it from being anything other than mediocre... at best.

This is a wonderful school. The teachers are so nurturing and the environment is very child centered. Their literacy program is balanced and uses a variety of approaches to teach the children. You couldn't ask for a better school!

My son is just completing the 4th grade at Creekside. We have been so happy with the school, faculty and staff the last 3 years. My son has excelled at CSE and a huge part of that is the awesome teachers he has had the last 3 years. I have enjoyed getting involved with the PTA. Luckily he will be able to continue there next year for 5th grade even though we live in Ridgewood's district.

We have been very pleased with the teachers we have had and the overall leadership. Very active PTA and parent involvement. Primary problem is morning and afternoon pickup parking.

CSE is ending yr #2, 06/07. Our area is growing rapidly & is a very diverse school district of Pitt county at this time. Enrollment is through the roof and growing. Academics is a pressure cooker from day 1 because of NCLB & EOG tests. There are no real resources for either Special Needs or Gifted children, those who fall thru the cracks. Teachers also struggle with discipline issues and academically challenged students. CSE teachers work hard and are real advocates for the children. Teacher shortages help CSE. CSE is #1 or #2 on the wish list for bright, ambitious new teacher graduates. It's OTJ training but CSE benefits from their fresh attitudes, teaching methods & enthusiasm! Occasionally the academic programs are civic-related with the entire school involved; it's always an exceptional learning experience for the kids! Otherwise most academic focus is on EOG material. CSE hasn't established much/any extracurricular

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
