My child has been 3 years in this school.This year is horrible .The teacher is not organized , every month we have problems with the grades and she don't make nothing to resolve. If no attendance at school for ill and we send Dr.note, the children loss attendance anyways. The restrooms always is dirty. When has bad weather, teachers don't check if the children have jackets on. The staff is not friendly, he screaming the people in the mornings. I'm worry because the bulling don't stop on this school. We looking for another school urgent..!!!!

Indian Creek is a wonderful school. Our child has been blessed with outstanding teachers for the past 4 years. We love how the parents are encouraged to be involved. We believe that being involved in our childs education is the key to success.

This school has been inconsistent for my child. One year we are belssed with an outstanding, well qualified, loving teacher who teaches critical thinking. Then the next year, we have a screamer who isn't caring, uses negative words to try to motivate the children and only provides TAKS practice worksheets for homework. Every single night. I believe the lack of consistency results from the poor leadership. Even with all of the upgrades the school has finally received, we are not getting the education my child, and every child, deserves.

I L-O-V-E this school. All of the teachers are amazing and the principal has excellent leadership. I love how they recognize the students every six weeks for their grades and attendance. I think it really encourages the kids to set a higher standard for themselves. This school has wonderful parent involvement and you can tell that is appreciated by the staff. I love both of my kids teachers, they are wonderful women. I am looking forward to several more years at this school!

I had my son enrolled at this school from K-4. I then pulled him out and enrolled him in a private school due to the lack of leadership starting with the VP and the Prin. There are some really great teachers, but there are some that are horrible. Very little is done to correct bullying, hitting, cussing and when you go to the Principle, all you get is the run around. Lots of families have pulled thier children out of this school.
