Open Quote Great atmosphere for kids. The school was overwhelmed with twice (1200) the number of students during the 2014/2015 school year. The opening of Parkside Elementary in the fall of 2015 has provided much needed relief for Highland Creek Elementary (HCE.) Now HCE can really excel! Smaller student to teacher ratios, dedicated staff (both teachers and administration), and even a Dad's group that volunteers several hours a month to helping at the school make for a great place for kids to learn and thrive.

We love this school! 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.
