My kids have been at Stewarts Creek for 4 years (going on 5 now). I wouldn't want them in any other school district! We love SCE and looking forward to SCM this Fall.

Both of my daughters are presently enrolled at Stewart's Creek. Unfortunately we have been relocated and will be leaving Stewart's Creek behind. I pray that we land In a school as fabulous as this one. It is an excellent school from the top down! I have been extremely pleased with the school's effort to meet the needs of each and every child, communicate with parents and to provide a safe, supportive environment for my children to learn. I cannot say enough about what a well run school this is. I hate to say goodbye!

My kids went to Stewart's Creek from Kindergarten through 5th grade. It is an amazing school with a wonderful staff of teachers. There has only been one teacher that was difficult to get along with. Other than that, they have all been excellent. Mrs. Tucker is an awesome principal and leader. We hate to leave the elementary school and move on to middle school. It has been the best experience. They truly care about the kids and want the best for them.

We have been at SCE since it opened and this is my daughters last year there 5th grade. This is a great school with Amazing Teachers and Staff, and the principle Mr. Zego is awesome. We love this school and so sad it's time for us to move to SCM, but hope that we have the same wonderful experience. today was the 5th grade award ceremony and I am amazed how many of these 5th graders are Honor Roll students, that says alot about the teachers and the school!!! Every year here(k-5) has been a great year. We will miss you all!

SCES has a high standard in education and is creative in meeting the individual talents and weak areas of each student. The administration is supportive and works wonderfully with the parents and the PTO. Our teachers are top rate,teach and model good character to our children. The school is such a wonderful place everyone works together and appreciates their roll from the Principal to the cafeteria worker and down to the volunteer.

SCE is a great school! I am a parent of two students and we have been a part of SCE since it opened. The administration, staff, and pto are tops and my kids are learning so much in school. Hats off to Rutherford County for such a great school!

My daughter is in kindergarten a SCE she is doing so well. I am amazed at the technology there are 4 computers in her classroom! Teachers are wonderful:) Love the parent volunteer opportunities. My only dislikes are that the parking is a joke so is the drop off and pick up for car riders.

I have a daughter in Kindergarten at Stewarts Creek Elementary. I am amazed at what she has learned in just a short time. My daughter absolutley loves her teacher and I believe having a great teacher makes wanting to learn easier and more fun. She comes home from school everyday wanting to do homework.

My daughter entered the 2nd grade this year at SCE. We transferred from the private school here in town and boy what a huge difference! SCE is organized, honest, and above all here in business for the kids! Not having to deal with what we left back at the private school is refreshing and reassuring! You honestly can not find a nicer staff. The teachers are glad to be at SCE- they have smiles on their faces- something that the private school staff could not offer. To anyone thinking about Stewart's Creek- please-do not hesitate. My daughter is getting the challenges that she needs and the staff could not be more professional, up front, and down to earth! I am ecstatic- but most importantly so is my daughter!

This is a great school. The whole staff strives to keep the children safe, and want each child to succeed. Everyone is kind and caring. I think the leadership for this school is doing a superior job - there is a positive attitude at this school, and that has to come top down. I am thrilled with my child's progress.

My children love this school. My husband and I love this school. Rutherford County has gone to great lengths to build a superb school with many technological advances missing from some of the county's older schools. My children, both rated advanced in all categories of TCAP testing, had no trouble finding educational challenges and did not suffer with boredom that plagued them at their previous school. I can't wait for the Stewart's Creek High School to be built. We feel very lucky that we were rezoned to this new school. I think Rutherford County is a wonderful school system, especially as compared to surrounding counties, and I think this new school is top notch. We can't wait for the new school year to start!

I think the school got off to a very good start for the first year. We transferred from a private school so it was a big change for my child in many ways. We enjoyed the art department and many events sponsored by the PTO. I am very involved as a parent and feel like my work is appreciated and valued by the administration. Overall, we are very pleased with SCE thus far.

My son was re-zoned for this school in 2006-2007 school year. His former school seemed to challenge him more, because he was bored and starting to distract other students due to the curriculum not being advanced enough to keep him interested. All of his work came back with E's of excellence, but he was getting bored. What child would not mis-behave if it meant that he could leave his boring classes and come home? I think that the leadership needs to step up this year for my opinion of this school to be changed.
