This school is awesome. Definitely one of the best in Clear Creek ISD. The teachers are great for the most part, and the principal is amazing. I would highly recommend my school to anyone. I'm a senior and the first class of Falls to graduate being here all four years. Go knights!

Probably happening in so many other high schools. We have great teachers at Falls and some terrible ones. Many times, my child would come home saying that all they did was watch movies or she and others were allowed to sleep in class. But the drama and bullying are the reasons why we are considering getting out of Falls. Brought this up to the counselors and they more or less said nothing could be done.

The teachers at Clear Falls are informative and up to date on emailing and or texting parents. Enjoyed the open house last night.

Clear Falls is an incredible school. They have after school tutoring for every student. The teachers and counselors are not only caring but really interested in each and every child. When I had a serious concern, about student safety, I was able to speak with the V. Principal of my daughter's grade. Those concerns were quickly addressed . I do not which school the other two parents are writing about with such strange statements about CF's but never have I witnessed anything that was described below. This is a new school and they are doing a far better job of giving the students a TOP EDUCATION.

Great school! Good teachers, good environment, my daughter loves it. She is very happy there.

My daughter keeps a blog documenting the number of classes where students are openly sleeping in class (desks pulled together to make a bed) and kids are spending their classroom time taking "selfies" (pictures of themselves) She has told us many times how her math teacher has zero class management skills, so nothing is covered in class. She comes home and looks up the areas of study using Singapore math on You Tube and teaches herself.

I had to withdraw my daughter from this school due to her being constantly bullied by the same girls everyday. I went to the school several times to report it and nothing was ever done. It got to the point where my daughter cried every morning before going to school and begged me not to make her go. I am a HUGE fan of CCISD but this school needs to shape up.
