15 Parent Reviews for Coal Creek Elementary School

Coal Creek is a kind a loving school. The teachers are super involved and clearly care very much for the students. What seems to be lacking is the ability to differentiate accademically. How to challenge the students who are advanced and provide more resources to those who need.

Coal Creek does not have an ILC. The students at this school are main streamed. If the person whose child needs ILC services is at Coal Creek, no wonder they are not successful, they are not at the right school or the right program. Parents who insist that their kids get intensive learning services ...  Read more

When entering this school, my child had an IEP. He did not receive the help that he needed and the school gave him the bare minimum of what was required by law in order to help him succeed, which wasn't nearly enough for my child. The principal of this school did nothing to help my special needs child ...  Read more

I have two children at this school. Both have had the "M&M" teacher, and I had to speak up to say what an outstanding teacher she is. She is truly amazing and both of my children have loved being in her class and their learning has truly taken off in their year with her. She is a great educator and also ...  Read more

The parents concerned about the M&M's in the classroom should ask the kids what they represent....they'll tell you it's not about eating candy. I'm wondering how much time these parents complaining about the M&M's have spent in this classroom watching this teacher - they would have nothing to complain ...  Read more

Yes the kindergarten classroom is covered in M&M's but the teacher is not promoting candy. She promotes a love of learning. My child is thriving in her class. She is a dedicated seasoned teacher who actually cares about the kids in her class. My child is sad on the weekends when she can't be at school ...  Read more

The kindergarten classroom at Coal Creek Elementary is covered with M&Ms. I feel as though I am sending my child to the M&M factory for school. Neither the principal nor the kindergarten teacher could explain how having M&Ms covering the walls and shelves of the classroom would enhance my childs education. ...  Read more

I agree with the parent commenting on the M&Ms covering the classroom. Kids eat enough candy. A kindergarden teacher should be promoting good minds and health, not be advertising for a candy company.

The school is great but I feel like the district is slacking in trying to attract African Americans and Hispanic families I believe there s only 3 African American children in the whole school and they re mine. I believe if there was more diversity in the school children would be able to learn more ...  Read more

Coal Creek is a very good school with great and caring teachers. The parents are always kept very well informed and the front office staff is Top Notch and highly accommodating. The Principal has very good goals and ways to assure they are consistently being met, but he can be standoffish, way too bureaucratic ...  Read more
