    I have a daughter who has attended Graham Creek since kindergarten. She is currently in the third grade and loves going to school here. All of the teachers she has had so far have been wonderful. There is a tremoundous amount of parent support here. The principal is great. I hope no one realizes how wonderful she is elsewhere because we don't want to lose her. I have not seen any other elementary schools offer so many extracurricular activities for so many grade levels including kindergarten. Anyone moving into the area with grade school age children can rest assured that their child will receive a great education and a tremendous amount of support at Graham Creek. I could not have hand picked a better place for my child to begin their education.

    Graham Creek Elementary is located in a country setting. The teachers and staff are devoted to the education of each and every child. There are many differnt after school clubs including Drama Spanish German Telecommunications ACE Gardening and many others. The whole community comes together for events that take place at school. There are many parents that volunteer for different activities through-out the school year. I have two children whom attend GCE and they love it. We have a difficult time at the end of each year because the teachers and their methods are so easy to fall in love with. We love our school and it's teachers!
