My daughter really enjoyed attending Fall Creek last year. The teachers and administrators are really fantastic and we are looking forward to the upcoming years at the school. We also love being part of such an involved community.

We are so happy with Fall Creek Elementary. The teachers are so caring and encouraging to our kids. They are not only teaching the school basics, but to be kind and respectful at all times. It is easy to see how FCE received an exemplary rating in its first year (skipping the usual growing pains that most new schools experience). I can very confidently recommend this school and I look forward to the continued growth that our children are experiencing there. It is truly wonderful.
