We moved here late in January. Everyone at the school accepted my son with open arms.With the help of his teacher Mrs. Lazarus he didn't miss a beat. And has excelled in every subject in his class. Looking forward to many more years of their GREAT teachers and classes!!!!

Would have given five stars except that my son's third grade teacher is difficult to get along with. My daughter's first grade teacher is amazing however and I went to this school the first year it opened and I had an amazing experience there. The rest of the staff is outstanding and the building is clean, well organized, and well run. Overall I would recomend the school district as a whole to anyone that wants a quality education for their children in an amazing neighborhood.

Big Creek is a large elementary facility with so many caring people. Teachers and parents work together to provide the best possible education for our students. Aside from academics, Big Creek provides so many 'extras' to help nurture student achievement. It is truly a team effort between staff and families to give our kids the very best!

Big Creek provides students with a loving environment where they learn and are cared for by amazing teachers. It is quite a big school but the staff treat each child as an individual and makes the school feel very personal. The families of the students are very involved in the school which shows at every event and fund raiser they hold, as well as their children's behavior and school work.

As an educator myself, one can walk in the doors of Big Creek and feel welcome. My children have been very successful at that school. Teachers take the time to find your child's strengths and excelerate it. From the custodial, secretarial, food services, and teachers, Big Creek's staff is wonderful.

Our daughter is a kindergartener in Mrs. McDonald's class. She enjoys school, loves her teacher, is exposed to such varies activites as computer lab, art, music, participation in several class plays and is in the gifted program.

Big Creek and the Berea School District has an excellent curriculum for Special Needs Children. Their inclusion into the regular classroom is done with pride and handled very well. I beleive that the educators/teachers should be more open and explain to all the parents of the children in their classrooms that there are Special Needs Students in the class so that everyone is aware and everyone can work together to make the classroom environment as productive and positive and accepting as possible. All children have the right to be in the classroom to learn together. It's a lifelong process that we all must learn to work and get along together no matter what our level of learning. Good Job Big Creek; it's a tough job and everyone at Big Creek does it very well.

My child has been in big creek for now 2 years. Her time in kindergarten was terrific, she had a terrific teacher, very understanding. My daughter loves going to school and she would like it very much if my husband and I could be involved in every event there is at school. For us to be able to do that there should be a letter sent home at least a week in advance to let us parents that do work full time jobs and need the notice to be off for such events. It is very important for parents to be involved in everything our child is doing in school. Hopefully next year she will have another wonderful & understanding teacher to help her succeed even more. I hope this coming year we will have more time to be there for school events and have better communication with the school.

Our son began kindergarten this year and has really learned a lot. He also enjoys going to school and participating in his class. His teacher, Mrs. Shaefer, does a really nice job! We also would like to commend all of his extended day teachers! They really offer a great program for all of the students.

My child was in 2 other previous schools before coming to Big Creek. I can tell you that I love the school so much that I am very sorry that she lost those 2 years at those other schools. I really like the teachers and have had nothing but positive things to say about the school and the principal. Mrs. Millen has to be one of the best administrative interns I have had the pleasure of dealing with. My child had some instances in which she did not want to go to school, but thanks to Mrs. Millen and Mrs. Pickle within a couple of days her whole attitude changed. These 2 ladies deserve recognition for all the hard work and caring they put into their jobs! Thank you from the bottom of my family's hearts!
