    Interesting... I gave a very poor review of the administration of this school...(not the teachers they are wonderful)... but my review is nowhere to be found. Suffice it to say... it was a 5 star school before they combined with Forest Hills... now i'd rate it a 1

    I had 4 kids go there and the staff has changed drastically but I remember them always being so nice and two of my kids are now in college and they say that not only was it the best school they have ever went to but that mr harrold was always learned everyone's name

    We have 2 children here and love the school EXCEPT for Diane in the front office. She is consistently rude and whether on the phone or in person always makes you feel like you're bothering her. Jan in the front office is wonderful!

    My son attended Hinkle Creek for one year and we made the decision to move him out for a number of reasons. The classroom teacher was wonderful as were some of the others however we felt the leadership from the top was lacking especially in the special education department. We never even received "regular correspondence" that the general population would get. Additionally the front office staff are rude and unkind to say the very least. Every time I would call or go to the office for some reason I was made to feel as though I was intruding and not welcome.

    My son is currently in the first grade @ Hinkle Creek Elementary School. He's been going here since Kindergarten. It is a great school!

    Hinkle Creek is an awesome school. I have 4 children the youngest is in kindergarten this year. I have had many teachers and I think they are all great. The PTO does an excellent job in supporting the students and teachers especially with enrichment programs! I wouldn't want to be anywhere else )

    I like this school but I do not think that it is the best. The front office staff is very very rude. I thought it was me at first but other people have told me the same thing. My daughter is in Kindergarten and her teacher relies soley on the kids to relay information to the parents. You can not rely on a 5 year-old to give accurate information. I feel because of this my daughter has missed out on alot. On the plus side the principle is very nice and involved and the school is not to big and not to small. But as far a academics and interpersonal skills I would not recommend this school.

    We love this school. Mrs. Chapman goes above and beyond what is expected and her structure and attention to detail have really helped my son!!

    The best school that my children could attend! The best principle and staff.

    We have been blessed to find such a great school with an incredible staff that could help our physically handicaped son meet his education and personal needs. Mrs. Spear Mrs. Collyer Mr. Harrold and staff have made a world of difference in his life. We couldn't have asked for a better enviroment for him.
