It is small, student centered, family oriented, and feels like a private school. My children have been there since starting the pre-K program which is awesome and is far better than any other pre-K program out there!
Best teachers, best principal, best parents!!!! Public school that almost feels like a private school! We just started there this year and already love it!!!
It has the most helpful teacher and staff. They work everyday to go out of their way to make sure every child get the best education available.
My kids have been in private schools up to this year and I expected a big difference moving to public. Canyon Creek has actually been even better than public schools. They have addressed our needs immediatly and the fabulous commuinity has been an added bonus. Michele
Canyon Creek Elementary has the feel of a small town school. Small classes with fantastic teachers and faculty. Very intimate.
Two of my young grandchildren attend Canyon Creek Elementary in Richardson, Texas. I have been quite impressed with the curriculum and the degree of enthusiasm with which the students and teachers approach education and learning in general. When I have lunch with my grandchildren, the process is very orderly and the children are well-behaved. The school field trips, after school activities, and various evening programs, are innovative, educational, and an enjoyable experience for the students and their families. The classrooms are kept neat and clean, the hallways are decorated with creative and interesting classwork and the outside grounds are always impeccable. The school staff and students appear enthusiastic, happy, and caring towards one-another. Problems that may arise in the classroom are handled in an extremely fair manner for all concerned. I have noticed that a sizable parental volunteer effort exists, with an impressive cooperation among those involved. My grandchildren look forward to school each day and when sick, they 'fight against' having to stay home. I would say Canyon Creek is an exceptional school in all areas and a definite credit to the Richardson school district.
Teachers that know and care about our kids and a principle and staff that keep it running under all circumstances. Kids that are smart, fun, and happy and parents that love the school and support it immensely! It's a public school that is small and private and continues to give to other communities that are far less fortunate. The students think of fund raisers across the board to help those in need....including dogs!!!!
It's exemplary! And it's right on our street. And we love the neighborhood....
CCE is great school because of the staff. I have never seen teachers and staff so committed to the children in their school. They truly take extra special care of each one. The classes are small and the parents are very involved. Awesome environment for our children.
The teachers and staff are wonderful! The children are precious and the parents are so eager to get involved. The campus is also nestled in a cozy little neighborhood and is surrounded by soccer/baseball fields, playgrounds, tennis courts, a community swimming pool and a pavillion. Kids gather around the school to mingle and play. It's a small school where everyone knows each other and the class sizes are small. It's just a wonderful school!!
It has been a great school for my grandsons, in academics plus the caring teachers at the school. Love it, and love to come there and play on the playground with the boys!
The sense of community - Canyon Creek is a family. We don't just go to school activities together, our children are together out of school in scouts, soccer leagues, YMCA, we look out for each other's kids.
It is an amazing school!! Wonderful teachers and Principal who care so much for the children.
Great teachers, great student-to-teacher ratio, small private school enviroment in a regular public school
They are so caring and accepting. They are a truly family oriented school like no other!
Canyon Creek is a hidden treasure in a quiet suburban neighborhood. Our school has an amazing staff. Each and every person truly cares about the education and emotional development and wellbeing of each student. The teachers are dedicated to motivating each child to reach their potential. The families who attend the school are also amazing, everyone works together for the benefit of all students and families. I wouldn't dream of being any place else! CCE is a blessing!
It's warm and inviting to the kids and parents, both. My nephews love going to school here. The teachers and principal have a great reputation.
Canyon Creek Elementary IS the best school! Everyone employed at the school is friendly, and is genuinely concerned that my children get the best education possible. The parents of the students are very involved and all watch out for each others kids. There are great CCE community events and gatherings throughout the year that bring the school together. Bottom line, Canyon Creek Elementary is tops!
Canyon Creek Elementary is an Exemplary school in a Recognized school district in Texas. Both the teachers and parents work very hard to provide an excellent education for the children.
This is an excellent school, with a great caring staff and wonderful volunteers.
