    "Terrible administration at this school. They are unresponsive and lack responsibility for their actions. They teach for testing because it benefits their pockets. There are few teachers that are here that care about the actual students. The counsellors are terrible in providing guidance to the students. The administration thinks because they have an "a" grade (mind you, based of Florida's terrible set of standards) that they are invincible. Policies are only enforced when they want to show their "power". Unfortunately, most of the time it is with the wrong students that they choose to demonstrate this. They have policies for students against "bullying" other students and staff, but maybe they should consider a policy of staff "bullying" students. They also don't tell you how many students are transferring out of this school to neighboring schools because of these things. I understand that Bartram Trail is a far superior school than Creekside. Unfortunately or fortunately, my child does have goals for after graduation and Creekside is the only school that offers an academy that aligns."

    "Creekside was a decent enough school. I attended all four years and did learn a lot from certain departments (e.g. English, History) but one department in particular, Mathematics, needs a lot of work. With the exception of Mr. Johnson, most of the math teachers at Creekside have little to no knowledge about the subjects that they teach. It amazes me that a woman like Lydia Wiles is allowed to continue to teach with the amount of students that consistently receive low scores on not only standardized tests, but they tests that are given in class. For most people living in the Julington Creek area, it is almost impossible to transfer to another school; and you don't have to. Creekside is a good school, just needs some work in certain areas, like guidance and mathematics"

    "Creekside is an aesthetically pleasing school to be at; I have found this to be true through my last two years of attending. I have also found this school to be, in every way, placed on a pedestal for its greatness and superiority over other St. Johns schools. Unfortunately I do not rate CHS a 5 star school like most parent-submitted reviews. My reasoning lies behind what I believe to be a lack of staff "involvement." Involvement means more than preparing for the next district test. The purpose of public education is to provide knowledge for the learners future, whether they decide to pursue a path involving it or not. I do understand that when teachers teach around 120- 150 students a day in a matter of 7 hours, making sure every student understands the topic is near impossible. But I feel some teachers at this school do not care for the students actual understanding, but rather that their students will just remember the information for the quarterly district exams. I suppose that's a lot to expect from a limited staff that must teach 1800+ kids, but I was hoping for a greater quality from something that's been glorified to me since elementary school."

    "I may not be a genus but the comment that rave about the school look fabricated by the Administration. The truth is the academic are good, if you are looking to be taught to the test. Teachers are so concerned about the standardized test scores that their pay is based off of that they lose sight of actually engaging students. The Administration doesn't care about the students especially the Principal, who is more concerned about dress code than anything else."

    "A GREAT school! Creekside is ranked 155 in the nation by Newsweek's 2013 America's Best High Schools list, and 155 by The Washington Post's Most Challenging High Schools list. This is no small feat as there are 30,000+ public high schools in the U.S.. Principal Randy Johnson is doing an excellent job despite the rapidly growing student population...everybody wants to go to Creekside. Students always are smiling and polite. Deans Helmly and Highsmith handle a myriad of jobs and are always a steadfast presence for the students. The administrative staff is responsive caring and there are many excellent teachers. There is also a great TV news show featured daily on the school's excellent website, and there is a large number of parents who volunteer, another reason why this school is so great."
