Located near the growing vicinity of Harbour View, Creekside Elementary serves kindergarten through fifth grade students in the suburban section of northern Suffolk. The vision of CES is to foster our students’ full academic potential to become capable, confident citizens who are aware of their responsibilities in our ever-changing society. Our staff, our parents, our community volunteers, and business partners work together to prepare our students for a prosperous future. With our record of academic achievements, charitable outreach, and extra-curricular activities, CES has proven to be a great place to grow and learn.
Our instructional program focuses on providing appropriate challenges for all students based upon the Virginia Standards of Learning through differentiated instruction and research-based strategies. Whole brain teaching and the availability of state-of-the-art technology allow the staff to motivate students toward academic excellence. As a Title I school, we realize that reading is the cornerstone for academic achievement, therefore, reading initiatives such as Accelerated Reader, Fundations, and the Wilson Foundations Reading Program are supported throughout the building.
Whether by raising funds for organizations such as March of Dimes or American Cancer Society, working in our garden, facing off with the faculty on the basketball court, decorating the windows of downtown merchants for the holidays, or attending a performance of the Virginia Symphony, our orange & blue Gators have ample opportunities to have fun outside of the classroom, promoting school spirit, reaching out to the community, and becoming better citizens.
