    Creekside Elementary has a lot of spirit and heart. The teachers really care about the students and want to help them ion anyway possible whether giving them extra help when struggling or giving them food so they are not hungry during the week. Our students and parents also care about each other and want to help in any way. It is a very caring loving school.

    The school does an excellent job meeting each student's needs. Difficult in this economy & with the state screwing around with the funding. So much could be done with this money to enrich our educational community

    I love Creekside because of the people. Our school has the most caring and compassionate staff students and parents. We are more than a school; we are a family. We come together as a school to not only teach our children the subject material they need for their education any way possible but we also nourish their souls with Character Counts and Creekside Cares. This IS the place you want your children to be!

    Creekside Elementary is a very compassionate loving and caring school that provides programs for those families suffering economic hardships. We have Creekside Cares which is a weekly food backpack program and Warmth for Winter to make sure students have winter items! Creekside truly does Care for not only our learning community but for the surrounding community as well!

    Creekside has a lot of work to do academically and most teacher's lack the enthusiasm to inspire kids to learn. The classes are extremely crowded and creativity is lacking.
