I moved into clear creek thinking it is a good school district but boy was it the biggest mistake of my life!!! My daughter started in 2nd grade, she is now in 5th grade and she have NEVER had more than one 2 minute math worksheet per WEEK for homework!!! 3rd grade she had a newly graduated first year teacher, NEVER gave out hw in her whole school year. I thought well better luck next year. 4th grade came around and she also have ANOTHER first year teacher, freshly out of college and also didn't believe in giving out homework. 5th grade came around n I guess she have about 2 work sheets every week. She have different teachers for different subjects this year so she have more work to do. That's not all, I have 2 children who started pre-k and guess what??? They have PROJECTS left n right, every single month I have to do 2 projects for them!! Yes, I, ME!! NOT THE KIDS because it requires cutting, drawing, decorating, things that a 3 year old cannot do yet!! And now, December comes around and one of my pre-k kid have to do 2 projects. They keep requiring pictures, asking for pictures pictures pictures! I spent so much money on developing pictures already and they keep asking for my pictures for these projects! I'm getting so fed up with this school! The older kids who needs homework to keep them occupied after school will NEVER get any, and then the 3 yrs olds who cannot do projects will get plenty of projects for the parents to do!!!! I need them to give homework to my children, NOT ME!!!! I have also emailed the principle about why my 3rd & 4th grader never get any homework and I haven't heard anything back for the past year..

When my daughter Breanna attended this school I really enjoyed it, the teacher was very involved in her learning and she just enjoyed going to school, if I ever had any concerns, getting a conference with the teacher was never an issue. The ONLY issue I did have, was the office staff, they are not very polite, never smile, or even say Thank You, the school could use new office staff to make this school even more exceptional!

We love the school. It is so convenient to our residence. However, our daughters say the cafeteria needs to provide better food, pizza tastes dry, the smashed potato tastes like water

My daughter attend's this school and is learning so much from the first few months in attendance. The teachers are friendly and very helpful, and the staff are nice. I like this school and am glad this is where my daughter is attending.

I was very excited for my child to attend Weber. However, my excitement has turned to frustration and disappointment. My child is in Kinder and the teacher he was placed with is very rude and cold. She is always getting after the children and never smiling. My child was even afraid to ask her a question for crying out loud. The principal is nice, but shows much favoritism to certain kids. Many of the PTA parents are rude and also show a ton of favoritism. There is a lot wrong with this school, including overcrowded classes. As for the staff in the front office, they were always kind and very helpful.

Good school. My daughter is in Kindergarten and is already on grade 2 reading level. She has an excellent teacher. Very organized even though there are about 900 kids at school.

What a disappointment. My daughter is now a 5th grader at Weber but her entire elementary school experience has been disastrous. There is no leadership at this school. The principal is out of touch with the students and the community. There is no organization whether it be the flow in the parking lot or the school functions. I now understand why so many of our friends have pulled their children from this school to home school them or move to another area. Thank God this is our last year at Weber Elementary.

I'm so dissapointed in this school, the office staff is rude the cafeteria ladies are on power trips. Not all but many teachers are very unprofessional, and are always crying to students how they don't make enough money. To get a call in to the principal is as if you were trying to call the USA President himself. They screen her calls very thoroughly and then she doesnt even return the call. I will say Ms. Harper 5th grade teacher is really good and I have found that she truly cares about her students. We are actually moving just so we can take our kids out of this school!

I came to teach at Weber because of how well the principal does her job. I've found the teachers to be very knowledgable and they demonstrate best practices in education. Families are very involved and students are engaged. Weber is a super school!

My daughter went to Weber and I finally pulled her out and sent her to a private school. The Principal was difficult to work with. And the teachers he personally picked were terrible. It seemed their main concern was always making sure parents weren't around to see what was going on. We also had several incidents with the office staff being rude and leaking personal and confidential information about students. the principal has been replaced since.

I have 3 sons at Weber, 2nd grade, Kindergarten & Pre-K. The teachers are excited about teaching and are very informative on contacting the parents right away if there are any problems. The principal seems to very active in the school's activities. I haven't experienced any problems with her. I have noticed some changes and change is good because it means they are making an effort to improve. My sons are not old enough to start testing yet but I hope that their ratings improve to become a Recognized school. Remember, the teachers need the support of the Parents. They cannot do it alone.

I have a daughter in Weber in K-program. We have had an excellent experience this year so far. Our teacher is kind and very sweet to all her students.

My son was only there for 5th grade, but he had a teacher that believed in him and challenged him. This amazing science teacher was Mr. Meredith. Mr. Meredith took the time to build a relationship with my son and believed in him. My son was commended on all of his TAKS tests and was placed in all honors classes. (Before this, my son was pulled out for tutorials from K-4th grade and had a low self-confidence.) We never imagined that he'd come this far. He's doing GREAT on his own and not being pulled out ! A+ for Mr. Meredith!

Poorly led school. New principal brought in to raise the taks scores and the taks scores actually fell from recognized to academically acceptable. She's is very bossy to the children and to the parents without any positive results. The principal has brought the school s morale down to an all time low. The school has its fair share of excellent teachers but also a small population of mediocre to poor teachers. I would not recommend this school to anyone moving into the area.
