My daughter has been attending Creekside since pre-K and she is now in the 5th grade. Solid school in both academics and emotional development. There is also heavy parent involvement in class room and PTA enriching the learning and fun for the children. If the school didn't have contributions of money and program/class volunteering, I don't think it would be nearly as good of a school. I wasn't too keen on the old principal but the new one seems to be much more personable and approachable. Most of the teachers are fantastic but a few may need a change of career or a break from teaching and dealing with demanding parents. I image that teaching is not an easy job and add to it some parents with unrealistic expectations. The ESS program is stellar. Facilitators are organized, kind and nurturing with the children. I have to also put in a plug for the office staff. They are so welcoming, friendly and nurturing with the children. Overall I am very happy with my daughter's experience here over the past 6 years!
My daughter have attended creekside elementary preschool for the school year 2011-2012 & she had gained immense knowledge & skill throughout the whole year. She grown both socially & academically. The approach the lead Teacher Ms. Daisy & her fellow group of teachers use is comprehensive in embracing academics & family like atmosphere where the students feel very much at home and encouraged to explore their innate skill & interest. The curriculum is designed to make the young children to recognize the basic human rules and good morale and what is expected of them as a member of society at an early age. Eg. Children are given the the opportunity to choose between group of activities & encouraged to follow thru what they have started yet allowed to take on more challenging activities for those who freely expressed their bordum of finishing the job. The teachers work together in understanding each child and solving problems. They'll make sure to create an opportunity for each child to learn and share their knowledge by creating a special topic/agenda during circle time & weekly activities etc. making them more than ready to start Kindergaten. We've already enrolled our son @the PK.
