My son attended Cane Creek school 2nd -4th grade and my daughter has been attending Cane Creek since Kindergarten. I feel that Cane Creek is a good school and my children enjoy it as well.

Cane Creek is an outstanding school. My daughter attended kindergarten to end of 3rd grade. Only changed schools as we moved to Texas. The teachers are outstanding, very helpful, friendly and really seem to care. The school was not overcrowded and pickup and drop off was easy. We are now at a overcrowded elem. school in Texas and notice major differences. Cane Creek has a friendly family feel to it. One area for improvement could be for them to push the children a little harder, the school is Texas provides twice as much homework. All in all, excellent school and I miss it.

Cane Creek has been a life saver for our child with dissabilities. Donna Sanks listens, as does her staff, and one feels welcome. Forms are completed on time, meetings are held within a few days or the next day. Even if your child hasn't a dissability, you will appreciate Cane Creek. By the way, they are going to add on grades 5th-8th in 2004, so one doesn't have the worry of shipping thier 10 yr. olds off to a huge campus with High School teens.
