Quotes from Parent Advocates
“Every time I enter the front doors at Rainbow Creek Elementary School I am impressed with the staff, support staff, facilities, resources and surroundings at the school. It has been my sincerest pleasure to be a part of the school. I have watched my own child grow from a shy and quiet girl into a confident young lady with an open personality and strong leadership skills. She is not only benefitting from the programs offered at the school. The teachers are caring and open, which helps students to excel beyond the standard academics required of them to being able to give to the community and support each other while at school. What a wonderful environment they have created there. We cannot thank you enough!” Michelle E.
