Open Quote Very bad experience with this school. My kid is shy and takes time to get along .I explained to the teacher about her and asked the teacher to help her blend in.
The teacher replied that she cannot do it !!! There was no communication from the teacher to us on any matter.When emailed there would be no proper response.Would never recommend this school to any parent . Close Quote

Open Quote Big Creek Elementary is a high achieving school and one of the best in all of Forsyth County. The teaching staff is well chosen and guide your child to academic excellence. The administrative staff is very friendly and helpful. We are very pleased with our decision to save our elementary private tuition money for college!! Looking forward to another year at Big Creek...

Open Quote My kids attend this school and the teachers are absolutely amazing. It is still relatively a small school so it's easy to become involved with my children's education. I could not be more thrilled with the school and the district. Close Quote

Open Quote Excellent leadership in the administration and educators. Lots of focus on how to take and succeed in tests. Beautiful campus and charming older buildings. VERY FRIENDLY staff and teachers - and that trickles down into the classroom. The kids are happy AND learning! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
