  • I graduated from Creekside in the early 90's. 93 to be exact. What a dump that place has turned into. South Fulton in itself is a trash heap. Glad I live no where close to that place now and my kids are in a great area.

  • This is not a school for any child wishing to succeed in life.This school is over crowded with kids that wish to be mediocure. This school possess teachers that are not in any way encouraging and have terrible attitudes. The students are nothing but disruptive and is affecting the students that need and want to be sucessful in life. The school needs to be rezoned so that students have a fair chance to learn!

  • The principal and some of the teachers refuse to respond to correspondence. Creekside is overcrowed with 2400 students and lack the efficiency of most high schools in the Atlanta area.

  • Creekside High is not a conducive school for any student. The attitudes of the teachers and staff are non-productive and they do not exemplify a stance of being good role models.
