    I go to South Creek and I don't like it. Some teachers are nice but most of them always give u attitude. And the worst part are the students while I myself am a student too I just think my class mates don't do as well. 1st of all they skip almost all their classes and then scream at their teachers for giving them an F. And now kids are being so ridiculously stupid that they smoke smarties?!?! I mean like who does that??? And the worst part is the teachers don't do anything about it! I really want to leave this school. Oh and also there are SO many fights kids are too violent

    My daughter went to South Creek middle school in 2010 - 2011 I know this is a bit late however she thrived there. The teachers were great the students not so much. She did well and was able to get into OCSA. My son will be attending this school fall 2013.

    Two of my sons have attended this school. I think it is the best middle school in the area. The teachers counselors and principals are very involved in the students progress. Both of my sons were in advanced classes and if they or others in the class needed extra help the teachers would arrive early to tutor them. I highly recommend this school and I commend the teachers and staff on their excellent work.

I am proud to say that this school has been an 'A' school 2 years in a row. I have no regrets and neither does my son about attending South Creek Middle School ! -)
