Open Quote I'm from Saudi Arabia and I studied at Sugar Creek school for one year 4th grade(1999-2000) and it was amazing and memorial year. The ESL class was beneficial and supportive. I attend the school and I don't no what is Yes and No (No English at all)! and I left it with a very high Spoken and written English. My handwriting until now is different and neat. Thank you all Sugar Creek staff especially Mrs. Sloan Couch my 4th grade teacher. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter goes to Sugar Creek and the Principal (Scott Peters) couldn't be more attentive. Not to mention an involved staff. This is a wonderful school! We are currently basing our new house purchase on being in the district so we don't have to leave. Really great. 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.
