The school is cute, in a beautiful location and well maintained. Staff is caring and very much involved. Everything seems so organized. We've had a great experience so far, and my kids have made wonderful friends.

Great school, my kids are in 4th & 5th and have enjoyed every year. My 5th grader is well prepared for middle school.

As a realtor, Rebecca Creek is an outstanding feature of the Mystic Shores community. I have three acres listed across from the school, and it is in a prime location because of the hard work of the faculty, parents, and students.

We moved to RCES in October from out of state. I was worried that my daughter would have trouble adjusting mid-year. The staff was very helpful with getting her adjusted and she loved Rebecca Creek now.

We can't say enough about RCES! We moved from California and we're thrilled by the warm welcome that we received from the teaching staff and from the Administration. In CA everything was about attendance and test scores--without high rates in both areas, the schools wouldn't get the budgets that they wanted. When we moved here, we were so pleased that the importance was placed on the kids and having fun while learning, not on the budget. We highly recommend RCES!!

This is a great educational school but lacks when it comes to safety and discipline.

Posted January 18, 2006

My child came to Rebecca Creek after we evacuated because of Hurricane Katrina. Although the situation was stressful and difficult, the principal, counselors and the teachers made the transition as smooth as it could be. We were given every courtesy and we were treated with dignity and kindness at every turn. My daughter has really blossomed via the wonderful Ms. Hall's curriculum and her dedication to making preK kids have fun while getting ready for kindergarden. Parents are invited to partipate in class when schedules allow and our assistance is enthusiastically recieved when we attend classes. As far as the entire school is concerned, the school tends to have plenty of family events planned. The principal and the staff take academics seriously, but they also recognize that school should also be fun. The facilties are brand new and impressive. (The rock climbing wall in the gym is cool as well...)

My experience with Rebecca Creek Elem. has been mostly good. I had a problem with one teacher who I felt just wasn't doing her job, I took the issure to the principle, and the principle dealt with it verry professionally. My issue was resolved to my satisfaction. My son's current teacher works verry closely with us, and I appreciate that.
