Plum Creek Elementary School Reviews

3 reviews
My daughter has been a student here since Kindergarten and it has been an amazing experience for her. She knows all of the teachers and many of them know her by name. Our principal is wonderful and makes each and every kid feel cherished in our school. The teachers are excited to teach and love their kids like their own. They go above and beyond to make sure each kid is challenged enough to break through and learn as much as they can year after year.

Plum Creek Elementary by itself would get a "good" rating from me. Unfortunately the school is governed by an administration that is bond-happy. They just passed a bond that will build one of the most expensive middle schools in the entire state and a 2 million dollar animal stable. We now have the highest taxes in this area of DFW.

I would not move into Joshua ISD if I were to do it over again. I would find an ISD/town that had equal or greater education quality without an ISD that seems focused on building a school infrastructure empire.
There seems to be a lot of stress and drama going on between the staff and teachers. There are also always a handful of children that get preferential treatment.
