Principal's Message

Great Things are Happening at Creekside High School. I am proud to display and communicate the extraordinary accomplishments of our staff and students on a weekly basis. It is my goal to continue to be as transparent as possible whether communicating the abundance of positive events or our areas of concern. Developing and earning the trust of all stakeholders is a focus for me and my administration and we understand this can be obtained with open dialogue and communication. We will have various options to engage with me and school staff including but not limited to parent meetings, surveys, and opportunities to schedule meetings when there is a concern. I would like to thank all stakeholders for suggestions and I will continue to allow opportunities for communication for us to work together for the support of our scholars.

Communities In Schools Mosiac Project Highlights Creekside Student My'Yelle Warner

Community In Schools Atlanta held its 15th Annual Choose Success Awards Dinner on Saturday March 16th. Students were recognized for their remarkable accomplishments and academic gains. Creekside Student My'Yelle Warner received a recognition for her participation in the "What We Are Made Of" Exhibition.



Touchstone Gallery is excited to announce “What We Are Made Of” exhibition by Communities In Schools (CIS). The exhibition will ask audiences to look closer and listen harder to our nation’s students who are thriving in the face of significant challenges ranging from school violence to problems at home to hunger.

This exhibit launches a yearlong campaign, “What We Are Made Of,” that focuses on the powerful stories within every student. Through the art exhibit, the campaign will take a deeper look at seven students and showcase their individual journeys through school and highlight the communities of support that have played a role in their success.

Featuring the work of renowned pop artist Jason Mecier, each mosaic portrait is assembled with objects from the student’s life to represent who they are as individuals as well as the life and school supports that empowered them to succeed. This vibrant collection includes portraits of seven students from across the country. Their stories represent a multidimensional view of the challenges and triumphs students across America experience every day.

“Too many of today’s youth are painted in broad strokes, often labeled as so-called problems to be dealt with. As a result, their potential goes unrealized,” said Communities In Schools President & CEO Dale Erquiaga. “‘What We Are Made Of’ will demonstrate that when we take a closer look at this generation—when we go beyond labels and really examine the social and emotional factors that make these young people who they are—we begin to understand the richer story today’s students have to tell.”
