Creekside Elementary School is part of the award winning Poway Unified School District. Creekside has the distinction of being the 21st elementary school in the district and the first school to open in the 21st century. Creekside was built with a vision for the future and preparing our students to be productive citizens and experience successful careers. The physical structure of Creekside is unique. It consists of 30 permanent classrooms as well as two temporary classrooms organized into five villages.
Each of the villages contains six teaching stations or classrooms, student restrooms, a staff restroom, as well as a workroom and a large village “square” or common area. The common area is used for individualized instruction, groups to collaborate, space for technology, and parent volunteers to work. In addition, the main building houses the administrative office, a full size multi-purpose room, library, computer lab, and the special education programs. The before and after school care and the preschool are also located in the center of the campus adjacent to the cafeteria and lunch area.
The staff of Creekside represents a group of outstanding individuals who are well educated and trained to meet the needs of each child. Staff, parents, and students have come together to create a positive learning environment that provides numerous opportunities for all children to experience rigor, relevancy, and relationship building. With the support of our PTA and Creekside Educational Foundation, we are able to provide our students with enrichment opportunities in technology, math, art, and music. The support of parents and the numerous volunteers on campus each day contribute to the success of our students.
