    Creek view happens to be a excellent school for kids the teachers are very well concerned for the children that attend as well as for their education and other learning abilities So I would definitly recomend this school for any one moving to the surrounding area

    My second child has started creekview this year and I am more than pleased with the school. The new principal makes all the difference. More laid back with the students and not so uptight with kids being kids! Kids are there to learn academically and socially. Sometimes I think schools forget about the social part. Creekview finally gets that part!

    I am a grandparent and I have 3 grandchildren in the 3rd grade at Creekview. My grandson has an OUTSTANDING teacher Mrs. Edmonds. Jojuan is so happy and excited when he comes in from school even with all the homework and projects. He also along with my 2 granddaughters are in the gifted program and Mrs Foster is SPECTACULAR. She makes them see new and challenging things. I rate this school 5 stars.

    Not impressed! Teachers and staff purposely try to stifle the children's natural curiosity and imagination. The lunch room/auditorium is stagnant and when the noise gets to a certain level the giant traffic signal turns from green to yellow to RED and a blaring alarm sounds to silence the children -- during the ONLY time that they have any chance to openly communicate with each other. There is only 30 minutes for lunch and no time to play...just right back to isolated work work work...its almost as if they are trying to train our children to be "good little workers". Just shut up and work don't think don't learn head down and keep on working! To top it all off...Alabaster just voted to run their own school district and to me that is a little like the inmates running the asylum. RUN don't walk from Alabaster and the schools we sure are.

    My son just started 1st grade at Creekview. His teacher is just wonderful! The only thing that I don't like is that the woman in the office are so not friendly at all...everytime you go in the office they just stare at you and don't say a word to you...they never smile or say hello...my husband went in there to check my son out and he came back to the car and said "yea the woman in the office aren't friendly or helpful at all"...my husband has never checked my son out before so he wasn't sure what to do and apparently they didn't bother to try and help him. So if they would hire some friendly people for their office then the school would be perfect!

    Creek View has a wonderful faculty and staff that work hard to meet the needs of all students. Students love coming to school knowing that their teacher cares for them and that they make learning fun! The Faculty and Staff enjoy coming to work because we are family and care for each other.

    Our daughter has started k-5 this year at CVES. We relocated to alabaster this year and in looking for a home the school district was very important. I did a lot of research and found that CVES was great...As it turns out we could not have picked a better area and school. CVES is great! Teachers are wonderful and very nice. Teachers really spend time with each student and the academic programs are great! Extracurricular activities are great and the gym is wonderful. They even go to music class. PTO has raised a lot of money for this school and all was given back to the students! Way to go CVES! From another impressed parent!

    My 5 year old goes to CVES and I am impressed by what she has learned in such little time. She seems to love her class and she has a desire to learn each day. So far I am very pleased with what Creekview has achieved.

    My four children attended CVES and we all loved Creekview! The teachers are loving yet firm. The curriculum is strong. There is a feeling of real acceptance that extends to all the students. (two of mine are 'gifted' one is average and one has a reading disability). All four were nourished emotionally and intellectually.

    My son attends this school. It is excellent. I really can't say enough about Creekview. The students have a school that is really 'their school.' When you walk in the front doors you feel this atmosphere. The teachers and staff are caring and protective yet challenge the children to grow and learn in a manner that I can only descibe as 'nourishing'. My child has bloomed.
