This school is amazing. The parents are great. Mr. Knott is a great principal. He handles a very large elementary school very well and makes time to speak to parents and children about any concerns. I have head great experiences with all the teachers we have encountered as well.
Mr. Knott principal, is the best thing this school has. He is awesome, very responsive, very nice. Office staffs are ok if not great. Not a warm friendly bunch, or selectively friendly I guess. May be its just this year, but it seems my child is not enjoying learning process and teacher's communication style. This class lacks soul. Most of teacher's time goes away in disciplining the challenging hyperactive overreactive kids. It must be really hard on her. Just an unfortunate year for us. There is a disconnected environment, not sure why. Relocated from Fairfax County, I have seen some good schools and teachers between two kids, so I know what I am talking about. The school ratings are so good that I didn't think this will be an issue, I hope and pray I don't regret changing school districts.
My child does not attend Creightons Corner Elementary, but I wish she did. We had the opportunity to attend a play at a local high school along with several other schools, including Creightons Corner. I was amazed a how thoughtful their children were and how positively the teachers interacted with the students. The principal was amazing! He commanded the room and the children were very responsive to his direction. I have always heard good things about this school, but today I saw it firsthand.
Transition to CCE from a Montessori school has been phenomenal! The teachers are great & the parents' passion & involvement is impressive. The level of education my daughter is receiving doesn't seem to be any less than that she received at Montessori. It is a great community.
