    This is my daughter's second year at Broad Creek. She & I LOVE the teachers & school. FANTASTIC SCHOOL!

    I have to say that I am very happy with Broad Creek Middle. My oldest child is currently in the 6th Grade and loves it! They have 3 6th Grade teams and though she was separated from most of her elementary school friends she claims this is her best year ever. She adores her teachers and claims she wants to be a historian because her history teacher Mr. Jones is so fun and makes the subject so interesting. She also recently learned to play chess and loves it. The extracurricular clubs are endless and as a mom I love that this school has a great way of keeping children young and not allowing certain things that may mature them at this level. Also my daughter's Kindle went missing and wouldn't you know it.... a few months later it was brought to the principle's attention and it was found within a week! Being a military family we will be moving next year and can only hope to find a school that is up to the standards and values I find at Broad Creek Middle.

    Experience - three kids. Awesome school with Caring/tough teachers who lead kids in quest for excellence in education. Couple Examples- Math teacher Mr Whitley has taken home the "math counts" Algebra team award for the past decade or so...best in NC. Wrestling coach as well...feeding Croatan which has the state champion wrestling team. Mrs Garmin 8th grade science makes science real and fascinating...My son went from her class to an AP class at Croatan HS the next year and got a 4 on the AP exam...

    Could not find a better middle school if you tried!

    I wrote a very long review of this school that was not posted and that concerns me. This school is in definite need of an administrative overhaul. The atmosphere is very negative and do not expect your child to have an uplifting experience. The children that attend this school are from mostly good homes but they are treated like prisoners. What is sad is the county administration has been told this for the past several years but because 'test scores' are high they must be doing something right. As a military parent I have seen many military leaders accomplish great things on the backs of their people and I equivocate this same principle to what is been happening at Broad Creek. The last posting was by the principal and I guess she was trying to convince herself.

    This is the first year our daughter has ever attended a public school. For 7 years she attended a Private Christian School out of town and we all loved it. Needless to say we were very reluctant about a public school but after investigating Christian Schools in the area we opt to send her to Broad Creek. We had heard great things about the school and during the summer we took a visit over to the school and walked the grounds inside and out. From day one she was leary scared and comprehensive and she really had a hard time adjusting. The Assistant Principle Mrs. Fritz The School Counselors Mrs. Toodle and Mrs. Peters and the Secretary Kim Fagley even the Asst. Secretary Mrs. Starcke were all absolutely wonderful! The staff I mentioned above were all so very patient and cooperative with me and my husband. Mr Weist her Math teacher and head of her Class was wonderful and patient as well. I recommend this school to anyone that is hesitant because I can truly say that no one there gives up. They honestly care and they truly put the student/child first.
