First we love them. Then we teach them" is the school motto. The kids are evidently the purpose for the school. Kids matter. Parent involement is tremendous and the teachers, staff and administration work together as a team and involve parents in the decision making and partnering in the education process. A great place to go to school. I can rest at ease knowing my child is getting a private school education in a public school setting at Hickory Creek Elementary. The school had the highest test scores in the district and the district is the number one district in the state. What more can I say?
