We have 4 children and have home schooled all of them until this year. In fall 2012, our oldest 3 enrolled at Sale Creek Middle. We had 2 in 8th grade and one in 6th. All assimilated very well. The teachers and staff were exceedingly helpful in our transition, and were always available to answer any questions or provide guidance as needed. The learning environment is optimal with small class sizes and a good teacher to student ratio. each of our kids earned honor or star roll for the year as a result of their hard work and that of their educators. We have been very satisfied with sale Creek Middle/High school, and look forward to having our children return there in 2013.

Great school & wonderful teachers. We need to build onto our school. We are running out of room. This is great for our school but we have NO room. School board needs to pay attention to our needs!!

Sale Creek Middle/High School has a dedicated staff & great community support. Small class size makes it possible for teachers & parents to work together teaching & encouraging students in their journey towards excellence.

Sale creek is what you can expect from a small town school, Everyone knows everyone there, the teachers are friendly and you also get the small town gossip... even from teachers about the kids that go there. Not all teachers are like that, just the ones who try to fit in with the students. that i did not appreciate at all when going there, but overall it is a good school to go to.

The whole atmosphere at Sale Creek is that of a small town school full of teachers and administrators who really care about the students. I know that my kids are safe and are getting an excellent education.

The overall opion of Sale Creek Middle/High is Great. The only thing that concerns me is the space in which our children are in. I mean my son is now in the 6th grade and in a module. What is it going to be 3 years down the road when the subdivisions are developed in our community. I attended and graduated a small town school in Ohio ( graduating class of 32). I feel with the overcrouding problem '05-'06 year we the parents need to voice our opinion to Jessie now to be heard 3 years from now if you know what I mean!
