Let me start by saying I wanted to give 5 stars.We have had 3 kids go through this school. 90% of their experience has been fine, with good teachers, largely, and a strong learning environment.. The down side is the lunch setup, which I understand to be in order to limit bullying/student "down" time. However, it's been a net negative experience for my kids. The last thing is they (and by they I am referencing the governing body) seem to want to ignore students who misbehave. Decisive action is not taken to stop things like bullying, or general disruptive behaviors. Otherwise, it's been great.Excelling in music, math and English. Great job there.

This school is ok. Though the teachers are the most helpful and can be annoying, but they have helped me the most in the two years I've been going here. Falcon Creek has two helpful programs called aim and avid. Though I am only in aim, I've heard many great things about avid. I remain on my journey to high school and college. But if there may be one thing bad about this school, it will be the new lunch. Please reconsidering getting more staff and changing it back to normal for future kids. Thanks.

This school is really great I am in seventh grade. This school has about 6 programs that anyone can be in like A.I.M or Avid. I am in A.I.M and my skills have grown so much from when I was in 5th grade. The sports that are here work on individuals than they look at the big picture. There is an Honor Roll for students that achieve a 3.5 gpa or higher. This place is a really great school!
