    "The teachers are good and the focus on academics is also appreciated at this school....in general all schools in Forsyth county. One of things that was very frustrating and exhausting with Big Creek is the endless amount of gifts they ask for teachers. I personally think it's unethical and unprofessional. This is an educational institute and unfortunately the focus in on keeping the teachers pleased all year long. The PTA gets carried away with constant gift giving for teachers. They need to spend extra dollars they may have on building their science lab. The front desk staff can be very rude and condescending. I also feel that this school hires a lot of young teachers and I am not prejudiced, but I think that they are not equipped with dealing with other issues the children may have in the classroom, besides academics. Training these teachers to deal with behavior problems in kids, would be beneficial. We had an ongoing issue with a student in my child's class who was picking on my son and other kids in the class. We brought this to the teachers and schools attention many times but finally had to have a meeting with the principal. You really need to speak up as a parent."

    "This is a fantastic school if you want to focus on the academic achievements of your kids. I have two kids at Big Creek and the teachers here are doing an amazing job. The intensive regimens in mathematics, sciences as well as language arts are state of art and goal oriented. The only downside is lack of extracurricular activities or sports related avenues, even the after school extracurricular leaves much to be desired. At the end of the day, our aim as parents was to focus on the academics and it is paying off well."

    "My daughter is out of Big Creek this year. This school has excellent teachers. My daughter enjoyed going to school. Staff and teachers are very dedicated and they love what they do and work hard at it. Mrs. Drone is awesome. On imorovement side, PTA is too much focus on celebrating B'days and gifts, etc. They have very good intetions, but I believe PTA got carried away. This school is extermly poor in area of promoting math, science and technology. Teachers lack the energy and depth in science and math. After school programs need complete overhaul. They need improvement in all areas. Luch meals is worst than junk food. However, teaching staff is excellent and they are doing their best within the scope of their reach."

    "The teachers are awesome. Ratio of teacher to student is small. It's a blue ribbon school. Excellent method of teaching. Wonderful staff. Great location. Excellent school activities and after school program."
