Cedar Creek offers a wonderful education and a fun, caring community. It's the only school in the Eanes district where you can walk to school.

After having my older child spend five years at an exclusive private school (my younger child tried it for a semester as well), we finally have both children at Cedar Creek. I wish we'd had them there from the beginning. My children are thriving in this amazing community. The teachers staff, and parents are connected, caring, dedicated, and responsive. Someone is always stopping to ask how my children are doing! Both kids are now excited about school and learning. We are happy with the academics (in math, for example, they offer different challenge levels), and the homework is age-appropriate. Socially, we have found the kids open and accepting -- a big change from our previous experience -- and the diversity is great. Cedar Creek is a gem. The principal and teachers have created a special learning environment -- and a true community. I'm grateful our family is a part of it.

The academics at Cedar Creek aren't all that special, and they spend too much time on TAKS test, but the school is safe, orderly, and meets the needs of most students. People are generally nice, but there are definitely social groups and some can be petty and unpleasant (with kids and parents). Pros: small size, dedicated teachers, fairly diverse culture, neighborhood feel. Cons: A bit cliquish (parents and kids), too much test prep at the exclusion of meaningful learning, social pressure.

Cedar Creek is the smallest of the Eanes ISD elementaries, and the best (although all campuses are rated exemplary). Cedar Creek has a friendly, social vibe among parents; a diverse & welcoming group of kids; and above all -- a huge commitment to academic excellence. The teachers take their jobs very seriously but create a happy, nurturing environment as well. Another thing I love is the full time art and music teachers who go above & beyond -- incl. school choir, public art shows, etc. We strongly considered sending our kids to St. Andrew's Episcopal (they were even accepted, etc) but opted to give Cedar Creek a try -- now years later, our 3rd child is still there and we have loved every minute. It's a wholesome, challenging fun environment.

A very good school which benefits greatly from the dedication of the parent community to education. The teachers are very good, but not exceptional. As with most schools these days, they are overly concerned with their 'Blue Ribbon' status than on true 'learning'. The principal is dedicated, but willing to sacrifice inspiration for discipline.

I have one child that completed K through 5th grade and another currently in 4th grade. Both of my kids benefited from exceptional teachers and support staff. Excellent school!

This is an excellent school until the 5th grade when the students are forced to jump through hoops to prep for 6th grade. The teaching is focused on gaining high scores on the states TAKS exams.

We started Cedar Creek this year and love it. I have two children who are very different and they are both excelling in the school. The whole school makes it a priorty to learn the names of the students quickly. Within the first 3 days, all the specialist (i.e.music, pe, etc) knew my children's name. Because it is a small school, you really get a feeling of being watched and care for. I do not feel that there is a whole lot of extracurricular activities after school that is sponsored by the school. Chess club is done during lunch along with other activities. I do think something can be improved there but overall, I am VERY impressed.

I am highly impressed with the Cedar Creek staff, especially in the areas of special needs. However, it is obvious they have to battle economic issues to get the best education for the special needs students, especially when trying inclusion, while those in regular classrooms do extremely well. Overall, I am very impressed with this school in comparison to others I've visited. There are plenty of extra-curricular activities for normally-developing and somewhat challenged students, and the students' attitudes toward each other (including special needs kids) is heartwarming. Parent involvement through the booster club and other volunteer opportunities, as well as with their own children, is high.

As the parents of a transfer student, we are extremely lucky to have our son in Eanes ISD and, especially, Cedar Creek. The faculty, staff, and facilities are fantastic. There is a true feeling of community at the school and the principal goes out of her way to know each child's name, grade, and parent(s). We cross our fingers that our child may continue in Eanes for the remainder of his K-12 education.
