It really depends on what classes you are taking at this school. If your child decides to take classes that are not the most advanced (e.g. enrichment classes, non GATE, regular classes) then they are probably getting a bad education. Students in these classes fool around and act like dorks, do not care at all about their education and the education for others, thus resulting in a terrible learning environment. The problem is not the teachers or the staff. I believe they are trying all they can to teach their students. The problem is the students and the parents themselves. Parents do not care for their children/do not teach them respect and maturity, and students for not realizing they should be respectful, that they should care, and for being selfish. IF however your child is taking the adv. classes (e.g. Algebra, Geometry, GATE, Biology) I can assure your child a great education. Most students in these classes are mature and do care for their education. They don't act like half brained selfish zombies. Unfortunately, due to the lower leveled classes being TERRIBLE, I give this 3 stars; not just what I stated is the reason, but there is a huge racial gap in classes.
My child is ADD and dyslexic, we currently have a 504 plan in place. Everyday is a struggle to ensure accommodations are being met, it requires weekly phone calls and daily emails to teachers and counselor and even then it seems I can not get the accommodations to be fully followed. Poor communication between the staff seems to be a problem at this campus. Everyday is a fight just to ensure my child has the same chance as every other student to learn. Im hoping the 9th grade school will be better.
Feel like my son is struggling with his work but I am not getting answers on how to help him. I am asked several times for him to be evaluated for special education but the school has never contacted me about it. I have completed paperwork and had him evaluated by a psychologist (diagnosed ADHD) still no response.
Received failing test scores, and probably sets the record for out of district transfers coming in. Great intentions, but weak management.
With the right staff and attitude I belive this school (SMCS) could have been a true magnet for the Crowley area overall. Good intentions gone wrong.
This is my daughters first year at Summer Creek, I think it's a great education center.
This school gets mixed reviews, while there are many teachers that truly love their profession and work hard to educate the children, even more seem to be there just to collect a paycheck. Numerous incidents of gender and racial discrimination and discpline leaves alot to be desired.
Only opened for a year and a half, Summer Creek is an outstanding school to send your son or daughter. All teachers are highly qualified in there area and are very caring about the student population. Reading scores are excellent and Math scores are increasing to an area of excellence as well.
