I rate this school as 4. One Star less because of their registration errors, mix ups of sibling names, and typos on student information records leading to communication errors/confusion

Oack Creek Elementary School is really a very good school. We moved from China in April and that is our 1st international trip. Our son's English was almost nothing when we came here. Now he is studying in this school in 1st grade. The school and teachers are very experienced and patient to help him to adapt to the new environment and learn English. He likes the school, teacher, classmates very much and very happy every day. I want to appreciate my thanks to all the teachers and children to give us so much help to start our new life here.

My daughter attends this school and we couldn't be happier. The teachers are amazing and really care about the kids and their education. The communication between teacher and parent is almost daily (via email and notes). Homework is challenging, but also fun for the children.

Oak Creek has amazing an amazing staff that fosters the love of learning in our children each and every school day. At a time when school budgets are being cut, our teachers, administrators, and support staff have dug in their heels to work harder and creatively to maximize the potential of their students make the most of the 6.5 hours a day they have with our kids.
