Indian Creek High School Reviews

Some of the core appeals of the school were it's strong student-teacher relationships, sense of community, and traditional teaching style, but that all has but vanished. Several teachers have retired or quit, and their replacements have a high turnover rate. Many of the incoming teachers are lack experience, and leave just as quickly as they came. Indian Creek fails to offer the extra curricular options and resources for students. Indian Creek remains traditional at the expense of its students.Indian Creek has dismal resources to help students who need it. The school has almost no mental health resources. While they claim that they actively fight bullying, many student reports fall on deaf ears.While larger schools can have more problems because of their population, I would recommend prospective parents and students look to at least somewhat larger schools and communities if given the chance, as Indian Creek's small size creates more problems than benefits for their students.

My experience at Indian Creek High School was a very good one. It was encouraged to be involved in a lot of activities, making it easy to catch up when I got to college. Their award-winning educational system was challenging but fair. I see room for improvement in their facilities, but that is to be anticipated in a rural area. There could also be more involvement with arts programs.
During my time at Indian Creek High School, I enjoyed being a part of the exciting school spirit. However, although sports there are good, the arts and music programs lack immensely. I would love to see that change.
