Too many bullies at this school, most people are in their own league of independence and they only hate people that aren't from carrollton, most people are losers, don't go to this school.

I've been involved with this school as a parent and teacher for over a decade. Sadly, it has steadily declined over the last 5 years. The large staff turnover is due in part to the lack of support administrators have for their teachers. Students are not required to follow the most basic rules like dress codes and ID's. The school does little to prepare them for real life situations and the rules of society. The administrators demeanor is to get them through the program and graduate them in order to keep their numbers looking good. in the mean time, they allow students to get away with things that they will ultimately be responsible for in the real world. They are not taught to be responsible and good citizens and quickly learn ways to get around having to do their work, show up to school on time, respect authority and behave in a manner appropriate to their environment. When situations arise, as they ultimately will, the mindset is one of damage control and secrecy. There have frequently been incidents occur where other staff members or parents should be aware of and they are not. I am not alone in my concern about how things have digressed on this campus. Quiet = Employement

I have had one child graduate from Creekview and I have one currently a junior at the school. To start off, I was worried about the school being cliquish or closed off to, well a different sort of child- that both of my kiddos are. That fear was quickly removed when I saw how accepted they were- especially within the Theatre Arts Tech Crew. I couldn't be happier with the teachers. They don't make things easy, they challenge your kids instead of just letting them slide by. Creekview High School believes in their students and that has made all of the difference. Thank you to a wonderful staff. I feel blessed that my kids have you in their lives. Regards!

I feel confident about sending my children to this school. At first I was worried it was going down hill the past few years, but they replaced a lot of the people in the office, who have made certain changes to the way things work. My child's grades have been improving greatly with his new teachers, had gone to state in a academic and musical competition.

this school has two sides to it. Depending on your child this may be a good school or a bad one, i graduated this year, 2012 and i can tell you i did not like this school. the veteran teachers are retiring and are being replaced with apathetic staff. there is virtually no dress code, and rules are broken by a large percentage of the students all the time. the gang activity has skyrocketed in the school and surrounding area. however some of the higher level classes still have good teachers. i wouldnt reccomend this school but it is not a bad option.

Honestly, this school has been a great disappointment over the last several years. Except for a couple of people in the administration, they are incredibly unorganized and have dropped so many balls with my children I have sent there, I have lost count. I don't plan on sending any of my other children there because the system has let us down so many times. I'm hoping the new principal will make some much needed changes. We've never been more disappointed with a school experience.

The school has some really great teachers, especially in the Physics and Calculus areas. The school is changing, but changing for the better.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this school in comparison to other schools such as Coppell, Lewisville, Hebron, etc... some parents need to stop being picky about how the school has 'changed'. of course it is going to change, the demographics of Carrollton/Farmers Branch have changed dramatically over the past 5 years. The 'old standards' of the past are unreachable due to different class sizes, social backgrounds of the students, and a changed environment of the the community. You can't blame the school for something it has no control over; it's location in Carrollton doesn't make it bad school. Secondly, unless you walking the hallways, then there are really no other opinions that matter except for that of the students. Sorry parents but Creekview is getting better and the teachers and staff members are trying their hardest to cater to a different group of students.

Great school - especially the Fine Arts Dept.

Like everything, it's what you make of it. I didn't focus on any one thing while in high school. It was senior year when I took 5 art classes at Creekview and another art class each semester at Brookhaven. Now I am Parsons the New School for Design. Success is measured by your determination not by others. I really enjoyed my life there. Ignorant people exists. Ignore them and things will be fine.

We just graduated one child from Creekview and have another who'll be a sophomore. Between the incredibly well organized and structured Band program and the easy access to teachers via e-mail, we've been very happy with Creekview. There is a high level of wonderful parent support throughout the school that makes the extrcurricular programs more effective, fun and productive for the students as well as the instructors/coaches and directors.

I taught there for 8 years. I've seen it go from one of the best schools in north Texas to one of the worst. Teacher turn-over is high. Fine arts are dropping. Athletics is a joke.

The fine arts department is exceptional, the athletics department is average and overall this is a good school! Armed guards (This may be a bad thing for some though) are a plus, a strong leadership team is also good. The one problem is with the increasing amount of gang activity in the area and within the school.

Creekview use to be a fabulous school, but unfortunately that is becoming less and less true. There has been a huge turnover. The school also has no discipline anymore. Hopefully this school will improve soon, because it has been great in the past.

In the six years that I have had anything to do with Creekview I have witnessed a drastic decline in quality. Quality teachers have recently left to other schools. Fights are more common. Kids don't follow school rules. Anyone can walk in the school..no questions asked. Too many unsupervised entrances. Leadership is non-existent. I have decided to sacrifice and send my daughter to a private school where she will get better prepared for life after high school and more importantly be safe. So sad. Bless those teachers. They definitely earn their pay.

This is a pretty good school. The fine arts department is one of the best in the state, and the teachers are great. The academy was a great idea and has some interesting classes (CSI). The athletics department has some really great years, and then some bad years. This is the best school in CFBISD by far.

This is one of the most amazing schools I have ever attended! There is so much to do and the academics are great! The teachers are even greater!

Has a wide availability of academic programs, including the Law and Criminal Justice Academy, as well as many different AP Classes. Dual Credit is also available. Great experience for my three children. There are also many extracurricular clubs available after school, and numerous sports. The school is a little cliquish, but encourage your child to get involved and it will be totally worth it.

Creekview High seems like a really good school. The only problem is my concern about violence.
