    "We are completing our first year at owl creek, and have a 3rd and a 5th grader. I have volunteered in the classrooms and have worked with the school and the counselor to do fundraising for books and school supplies. The staff seems very happy overall, and there are really good teachers that our kids really love. I think there may be a few teachers who just don't want to be here, but the majority seem to really like the administration and work well together. There are a couple of PTO moms who are very difficult and have caused people to stop volunteering out of frustration. I am really surprised by the remark about the discord over the continuous learning calendar. The parents and teachers I have talked to are excited about the new calendar. I haven't heard anything but positives about that. We recommend Owl Creek to other families. We find the staff to be innovative and creative, and the children feel that they are an important & active part of their school. When we have had questions, the teachers and administration have been helpful and worked with us. I would like to see another bicycle rack out front."

    "I enjoy Owl Creek. After reading all the past reviews I will say that I agree with several of the negative and positive remarks. They could inform parents a better on when a field trip is, maybe should update their Facebook page on important events, and be better on informing parents about failing grades. They do have an online grade book however not everyone has internet. There are some amazing teachers who communicate with parents and some that provide little communication. I think that part of this falls from the parents lack of involvement and the teachers not knowing how interact with parents. The PTO needs new leadership, the lack of personal interaction causes a decline in volunteers. The women in the office do at times seem gruff but they are the people who get the complaint calls or the upset people who walk in and not to mention the kids who visit the office. Everyone has bad days but once they warm up to you they are really nice. I agree there does seem to be an intimation factor with the teachers vs the administration. I think this comes from a discord over the continuous learning calendar issue. The school is not perfect but it is not the worst school I have seen."

    "There is a place for everyone at Owl Creek, and we love the diversity that our children take for granted--they have friends from all over the world. The teachers are terrific, and they really care about the students (even coming to soccer games to cheer my daughter on)! I have found all of the staff to be very helpful. We love our school!!"

    "My family and I love Owl Creek! It has undergone a lot of changes in the last 5 years since the new admin has come. Several teachers that needed to leave have left-sure, there's a few more but every school has some. It has won several awards and recently been named an achieving school for their test scores. They offer lots of after school activities like violin, drum line, drama, and cooking classes. The PTO has been busier this year than in the past trying to get more parents involved. My family has really enjoyed Fall Festival and the International Festival. I feel that my kids are loved and get lots of attention from their teachers. The teachers have been very approachable. They have different interventions for reading that were very effective. We are thankful we moved!"

    "Owl Creek struggles with leadership issues. The teachers seem intimidated by the Principal and her other administrators; a lot of unspoken communication is shared during meetings between staff members and parents. What are we supposed to think? Meetings with the administrators are unproductive and very frustrating. Open choice means LOOK elsewhere and hope you can get a transfer! Owl Creek seems to cater to just a few people, we must not have been the right ones..."
