    Bullying isn't well regulated here. Teachers don't do anything, I hated 4th and 5th grade.

    My son just finished all day kindergarten and we loved his teacher. As an elementary school teacher myself, I am very impressed with the staff and the procedures that are in place. What a great school! This site is incorrect. The principal is Chad Golden and he is AWESOME!!!

    This is my kids first year at this school. I find that the two teachers I have right now do not know how to communicate. There should be more notification from the teachers in regards to what is going on with the students in the class. Ms Kee tend to be rigid and unable to adapt to kids that I feel she doesn't like.

    I love this school! My daughter has attended for the last 4 years and has loved it! the teachers are amazing and the music program is advanced. The music teacher not only had them sing but has them memorize choreography and play all types of instruments also! They have many programs and fun after school events too. They are caring and make sure the kids are respectful to one another. The only thing bad I have to say is they have one real grumpy lady at the front desk, everything else is stellar!

    Rude staff and boy are they noisy, and you would think for good reason. Kids sit on cold cement, staff get to stand or sit in chair. Very poor quality education.

    Penny Creek is a great school. I am so glad my kids go there. The principal is amazing,very involved, and knows the majority of the kids by name. I have really felt like the staff has my kids best interest at heart. For one that was giving her a challenge. For the other it was making sure she had the support to be successful. The PTA also makes this school great. It is very active and they do so many fun activities for the students throughout the year.

    This was a great school for my son. Mr. Jacobson is the best teacher my son has had and he is a pleasure to work with on an adult level as well. He has taken 21st century technology and used it to benefit the children and the parents (email and pdf scans all homework so kids are able to complete at home if they pull the 'I forgot it at school' routine). A++++++ for Mr. Jacobson

    I've spent six years here at Penny Creek and am excited for middle school. Penny Creek has helped me prepare for middle school and though I'm excited to gain this new responsibility I will miss Penny Creek.

    Two of our three children have attended Penny Creek and we were horrified to see how poorly organized and unconcerned the staff and teachers were about the progress of our children. After trying to work with the school for three years with no success we knew we had to make a change for our children's sake. I attribute our awful experience to lack of leadership, a new principal every year for the last 5 years, and poorly organized and trained staff. The WASLs scores alone don't show the whole picture but they sure are a great indicator as to whether or not the teachers are doing their jobs!

    I have a fourth grader at Penny Creek. He qualifies for special services. I have been very pleased with the school. They work extremely well with my son. He is having the best year he has ever had.

    This school is one that has highly involved parents and a very active PTA. I have been impressed so far with the academic programs, as well as the music programs being done. The teachers are excellent and the bus system is well-done. There seem to be a lot of kids involved in the highly capable program as well. There will be a new principal this fall.

    This school is located on a very busy street so most kids are bused. The kids line up each day at the undercover area and walked to class by their teachers. Same goes in the afternoon. School hours are 9:30-3:25. Lot's of parents volunteer. The school holds many functions throughout the year. Even performances from each class in the spring. They offer an all day kindergarden program. There is a YMCA daycare on site. Music and PE is offered. I have seen spanish classes offered as well for a fee. the doors are always locked for security and they require parents to go down from their cars to pick up their children. Their programs seem to be very structured. They also have a nice library plus a computer lab. My kindergarder even gets to go on the computer. Over all this school is very great.
