My three kids range in age 27, 18, 11...they all have attended Rock Creek. We've been there since 1991, in this neighborhood for all those years. The elementary school is the best. All the teachers and office ladies have been some of the most caring and loving people you'll ever come across. They all love [our] their "kids" and their jobs. The kids come out of the school with a great foundation for the coming years. They care and will go out of their way to help each and ever student! Everyone is family and I've never seen so many parents wanting to volunteer for a school. I couldn't have chosen a better school. Rock Creek is my school and I'm proud to have been a part of it all theses years!
My children have gone to this school for the past two years and they will be attending this upcoming year as well. I wish more schools were like this one. Rock Creek's parents and volunteers did an outstanding job last year in making sure that the budget cuts did not affect the children tremendously. Rock Creek's principal is a superb individual and he should be applauded for all his hard work and dedication in this school. Some of the office ladies are not so friendly but with all the good work of the teachers, volunteers, parents and principal. you hardly notice them.
My son has been attending Rock Creek since April 2010 and has thrived ever since he started here. The teachers, staff and new principal are very interested in the kids and their development. They truly have the kids' best interests at heart and want to see them succeed. I am so thankful that he is learning life long lessons here to help him become the best that he can be. I cannot emphasize how much I truly appreciate everyone at this school.
this is the best school ever! I only went here for k-4th grade because I had to move, but in all the time I went here it was amazing! It was a shame to se Mr. Horne Leave, but the school was still great! This was by far the best elementary school I ever went to! Send your kids here!
I love this school! Like every parent I had many concerns sending my little girl off to a new school. She came back from school the very first day with many new things she had learned! Ms. Hesson is amazing and a very caring teacher indeed! My little girl jsut loves her and we are thrilled with the progress she has made in less than 3 months!
Rock Creek rocks! At least that is how my daughters would say it. We love the teachers and are pleased with the quality of care and instruction.
My daughter just started here this year and so far we have been very impressed with this school. There is a lot of parent involvement, they have attended a couple of field trips already this year and my daughter loves her teacher. I would recommend this school to anyone new to the area.
Rock Creek is a wonderful school. My son was in Ms. Pizzuto's class (first grade) last year and she is an excellent teacher and has made a world of difference. He has learned so much and enjoys going to school each and every day.
This school is a great one. They include every one and in addition exept all races and religion. This school is great at keeping there students happy and well taught. They have many fun events that all students are welcome to join and have some terrific programs like D.A.R.E.. They also make sure the students are at there level or above. If your child is not quit at standerd they make you and your child feal as if you are still perfect. My daughter loved it there from the events, the teachers and all the wonderful programs. There is also a very educated program called science camp for 5th grade students and my daughter had a ball! She came back wishing to go again, and with all her new facts she felt like she could be a scientist! The academic program is super! I recomend very strongly! great schools= great students!
Rock creek is truly a wonderful school. With extra after school activities through tualitin hills. Mr.Porter , a teacher there is truly amazing. After I was in his class I was a whole new person. Not only did I learn about academics, I learned common sense and how to be a good person. He is the greatest teacher on the face of the earth. The principal, Mr.Horne is also great. He is friendly and helps out alot in the community. Rock creek is a very magnificent school. If anyone is moving to Portland I would definately reccommend rock creek for there young children.
We have over five years experience with this school and rate it excellent - the principal is great - knows all the kids & families & all teachers are very supportive/caring. Parent involvement is amazing - support staff is wonderful too!
