This is a great school, my three children have been attending since 2004 and the teachers have been so wonderful. I think they know all the students individually. How they do that is amazing. I have no children left there now, but my grandchild is about to enroll. Thank you Deep Creek Staff and Teachers, they need more staff and teachers with compassion and care yet professional and disciplined at other schools.

I love Deep Creek Elementary!! The administration, the staff and the teachers are phenomenal! My son has been there for two years and all of experiences have been A+++. Anytime that we have an issue it is immediately addressed and solutions are put in place. When I walk through the door most everyone knows my name and greets me warmly. We so blessed to have this school help our child reach his full potential. Dr. Jones and her staff of administrators & teachers are a great group of people.!!

DCE is a great school. I've had two children there since 2007. We've found the teachers to be great and the administration responsive to any concerns. They have a rock climbing wall in the gym. Outdoor playground equipment could stand an upgrade though! Lunch is typical of any public school. Music program is fantastic. I've appreciated the way that teachers have gone out of their way to make sure my kids get what they need academically and they willingly alter the curriculum to meet both gifted and special needs. Love DCE....

The administrative team is wonderful. Dr. Brown (AP) appears to know every child and the children love him.

As in any school you will have some teachers you love and some you strongly dislike. But heaven forbid you try to make a complaint about a teacher at this school. You get the runaround until you finally give up or the response the teacher is always right! Rarely can you get an appointment with the principle. When I've talked to other parents with children at other local schools about the programs and events they offer, I find my child's school severely lacking. I also have to agree with the person who posted about the budget cuts here. We don't have a student of the month award ceremony or ice cream social like the other elementary schools in our district have. Your child just gets sent home with a certificate, that a few times were not even signed. I have seen the quality and quantity of food offered in the lunch room go down drastically over the past couple years. Even finding them running out of some food items before all the lunch periods have been served. And my child also has to wear a coat all day in the winter because it was too cold in the classroom.

This was a great school when my oldest daughter attended, but budget cuts are evident in the school quality. The heat was not on in November, the children were wearing winter coats at their desks. Teachers are only given texts books, no other supplies, they have to purchase their own worksheets and teacher aids. Special events such as Student of the month awards and Christmas programs were poorly coordinated chaos at best.

Deep Creek Elementary is the reason I chose to live where I live. The teachers are attentive and caring. My son has spent four years there, loves it, and has had extremely high scores on national exams due to what he has been taught there.

As an employee of this school I would like give you my opinion of our faculty and staff. It is one of the most cohesive groups you could hope to have. We all work as one to ensure the best for all children. We are very aware of the diverse backgrounds that we have and be assured that each child is shown respect for their cultural background and beliefs. When the children arrive each day they stop being just your children and become ours also. Not only is their education critical to us, we also work to see that they are well rounded in all areas that will affect their lives. As an Instructional Assistant of 29 years I can assure we all do our best for all of 'OUR'children.

This school has great teachers and curriculum. My oldest daughter passed her math SOLs with 100% her third grade year with Mrs. Sutherland and my younger daughter just completed kindergarten this year with an abundant enthusiasm for reading. She can read beginning chapter books with little or no help. The guidance department was an excellent resource for me when my daughter was first diagnosed with ADD. They offered her any available resources neccessary to help which were plenty. There's after school tutoring and a learning center for parents with books and videos on a variety of subjects. The school has movie nights once a month, a carnival, field day and skating night once a month. The techers are quick to respond to questions or concerns. The only downside to this school is the restraints of the SOL requirements on the freedom of the teachers to teacher outside of the box.
