While Falling Creek Elementary has great teachers, they are sorely lacking in administration. Not only do they only pretend to listen to ideas about how to improve the school, but they also have staff in the front office that needs training on how to handle parents and regular administrative duties. The school needs to get away from following in the previous administration's footsteps and be willing and open to new ideas such as more parent-involved activities for the younger grades. They also need to take any parent up on their offer to help and get them involved.

At first glance parents would think that FC is a wonderful school. And yes at first glance it is...until you find out what's really going on, especially through a teacher's eyes. I was so saddened. Most of the teachers are uncaring and have no empathy about what goes in our community because they have never lived here and have no clue. We deserve better!

Great staff, unfortunately parental involvement minimal - a few do a lot of work. 3 different principals in past 4 years makes hard to achieve consistent vision for school. Top notch opportunity for education - they really do try to 'make it work'!

Good school. I was most impressed with the staff- they go out of their way to make studemnts and parents feel welcome. They have many opportunities for parental involvement, and many exciting activities for the students. My children recieved a good quality edication there and I enjoyed volunteering at the school for various events.

Since the first time we visited the school in 1994, FC elementary has always shown that they care about children and their education. They have cultivated and encouraged a diverse group of children to reach out and achieve academic excellence. The office and adminstrative staff are friendly, experienced, knowledgable, and excellent with children. Mainstream teachers and special education teachers work closely with students and engage parents when the children don't meet their academic potential. Children enjoy school activities that occur both inside and outside of the school. Field trips are educational and open to parents. Parents are very involved with activities and work with the staff to provide a safe and pleasant environment for learning. Four of our children have attended FC elementary. My wife and I have always felt that the school was working with us to educate and stimulate our children, not against us. No better school in Chesterfield.
