Jordan Creek Elementary School Reviews

My husband & I specifically bought our home in this district for our son to attend Jordan Creek Elementary in Kindergarten. He is now in the 4th grade, & I cannot express how IMPRESSED we are with Jordan Creek from the Exceptional Teachers, One on One Learning, Academics and Student Morale the school exemplifies in!
Each year, it is hard to think that the next years teacher can be as wonderful as the current year & then I realize EVERY year it has continued and how invested each teacher is & how they truly care about their students.
The Best decision we have ever made is allowing our son to have the best education & Guidance from some of the best Teachers, Staff and Facility that only Jordan Creek can offer.

Best elementary school in the state of Iowa. I also attended three of the current “top 5” elementary schools in Iowa and none of them even compare to Jordan Creek. Students in my grade alone at Jordan Creek went on to attend Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University, MIT, Georgetown, multiple full ride scholarships to Iowa and Iowa State. The teachers I had at Jordan Creek, Mrs. Flagg for 4th grade, Mr. Weih for 5th grade and Mr. Witt for 6th grade were easily my three favorite elementary school teachers. Overall I don’t feel like I would be the person I am today without attending Jordan Creek.
We could not be more impressed with Jordan Creek. We transferred our kids here from a private school and I can easily say they are getting a much better education at Jordan Creek in a more loving and caring environment. The teachers and staff are exceptional. They are knowledgeable, creative, and dedicated to helping each child regardless of their level. In fact I feel they succeed most at recognizing the individual and helping that child learn the best way they can whether they are below or above the rest of the class. The atmosphere is one of respect for each other - we have yet to encounter a "bully" situation and this is in no doubt to their proactive approach to getting the kids to understand they are all a family in learning.
