    Welcome to the webpage for Creekside Elementary School, a part of the Franklin Community Schools, where We Are Family is more than just our motto, it is the way we work for our students every day! Creekside Elementary School serves approximately 615 students in developmental preschool and grades kindergarten through fourth. The Indiana Department of Education has awarded Creekside with an 'A' school letter grade now for four school years out of the past six. Construction was finished on Creekside in the summer of 1998 and we opened our doors to students in the fall of 1998. We are now enjoying our 23rd school year serving the students of Franklin, Indiana. Creekside is a school that serves all students' needs, including general education classrooms, special education programming for all students severe/profound through mild disabilities, high ability/gifted and talented education, Developmental Preschool, Essential Skills Classrooms, Response to Intervention programming in literacy and math, ELL (English Language Learners), speech and communication programming, physical and occupational therapies, music, art, physical education, library class and media center services, STEM instruction, a sensory room, and full day kindergarten. We are an Indiana Gold Star Counseling school and a national ASCA RAMP Award winner because of the school counseling services we provide our students. Creekside is also home to a Globals-reaching Destination Imagination team and other incredible student clubs and academic teams! Creekside is a great place for kids because of our talented and dedicated teachers and staff. I hope you will stop in or give us a call if you'd like more information about our excellent school.
