We spent 5 years with this school. Be prepared to be asked to send in money for anything and everything. The PTA loves to fund-raise and you will be asked to sell and buy all of it. The Principal likes to keep her high school-ratings and sweeps any negative incidents under the rug, quickly and quietly!

I will agree with another parent...The registrar is very unfriendly. Sour faced, bad attitude and will tell you anything (untrue) just to give an answer. very controlling. My daughters teacher however is wonderful. There is now a new principal. I didnt have any issues with the old one as others seem to have. Just be prepared that there will be no welcome committee when you arrive.

We began the school year with great excitement for our new kindergarten student. The staff seems to be very caring and supportive and my child is enjoying school. However, I am shocked by the attitude and the treatment I have received by the principal. She is extremely condescending and has made it obvious that parent volunteers are not welcome.

This is amazing elementary. My kid is learning more than I expected from my kindergarten kid. They have very good teachers and are very organized. It has security system installed. Leadership is very good. They also have a very good PTA participation, so you will never feel short of services. And because school is within the Deer Creek Community, it feels really safe.

Although parent involvement is great, the principal is dreadful. There is high teacher turnover at this school due to the principals tactics. The only thing saving my rating to average (I moved form the area) is the community and teachers. The principal needs to retire!

Unfortunately The school principal is to worried about being friends with her teachers and not following through with parents concerns when teachers act innapropriate. A lot of good teachers have left this school due to administration.

Other than the close-minded and clique-ish parents that try to dominate all school activities, we love Deer Creek. My 'special needs' child and my 'typically developing' child have both received what I feel is a top-notch education.

Deer Creek has been a truly wonderful school. All the teachers and administrators empower the kids to lear. They don't overstress the kids for tests, rather they use great teachers who work with parents to help their kids. They truly understand that parents send their best to the schools and the teachers and principals understand this. If any issues arrive they look to solve the issues instead of laying blame on the kids or their parents. There is no 'circle the wagon' mentality. We are happy to have our son in this school with great people teaching great things!

It's just too populated...overcrowded classrooms, lunch rooms, and playgrounds. Could be a good school, but principal seems to be more of a politician than caring. Too much teacher time dedicated to those 2 or 3 'special needs' kids - regular kids don't get proper attention. 3rd grade class rooms are in trailers.

We have only been moderately happy with the school. The principal and assistant prinicipal seem friendly but insincere. PTA is good and has tried to make the school a better place. If administration was better I feel the school would be better.

The second year of Deer Creek's history has been great. The parent involvement/PTA and activities have been wonderful. My daughter is fantasically happy with her teacher and so am I! The staff is always present and accessible, especially when the children are coming/going. I feel confident when I leave my child, she is in safe hands. The PTA has really picked up this year and contributed vastly to the school's library and extra activities, including a Dad's Club which helps build festival items, etc. Coming from California, I am very impressed with the level of parent participation and interaction. The overall feeling of community, respect and safety for our children is evident and appreciated!

We thought thought this was a great new school. All new teachers in fifth grade. Last years disapeared as many others have. No computers for students. The computer room is now classrooms. Over populated. If new to texas do not expect any welcome from the administration as to how the schools work here. Unfriendly and no clubs for the students, no chorus.

I have two daughters who go to Deer Creek Elementary School this year. It opened this year and I have been impressed with the administration and the teachers. I have liked the school and I like that it is very clean and that there is order and discipline. The kids all get to take theatre arts, music and PE and parents are very involved and welcomed. I would recommend this school as a quality school.
