My daughter currently attends Spring Creek Academy. She has never been happier & her results have never been better. Her excellent SAT scores are confirmation. I live in South Africa, my daughter is far away from home & the director, Mrs. Morrell has literally taken her into her home on occasion & cared for her like one of her own! I have great respect for the principal, Mr. Nelson & know for a fact that when converting my daughter's school marks to US grades, he stuck strictly to IOWA scores & gave nothing away. The staff are dedicated & supportive. Full marks to SCA!

This school is just a daycare!! You won't learn anything, and when you return to the real world, you will be behind everyone.

I think the teachers do care a great deal about their students considering how underpaid and unrecognized they are. It's the administration that does not. To them it's all about their bottom line, like so many for profit schools. Teachers are unable to properly cover material given the short amount of time and old out of date textbooks. Math, science, technology and enrichment are sadly lacking. This school is definitely behind in the times.

This school is only for convience. Your child will fall behind students going to public school. There is not enough time to master concepts and the teachers are not concerned whether the students learn information or not.

Spring Creek has a unique concept in their half day schedules. The administration and staff is caring and dedicated. It's the best program around for talented and gifted kids.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
