Inspiring Greatness in Every Kid

Creekside Charter is a TK through 8th grade free public school located in Olympic Valley, CA serving students from Truckee, Tahoe City and surrounding communities.

Our Program

Our dynamic, collaborative learning model emphasizes experiential instruction, social and environmental consciousness, and an awareness of each student’s unique potential. Students are empowered to become positive contributors to society through partnerships with education specialists, parents, peers and the community.

Creekside academics inspire the greatness in each student and look to challenge, support and celebrate individual academic and outside passions. At Creekside, relationship building and the team effort between staff, students and families is unique, leading to empowerment in our kids’ education.

Building a Stronger Community

By encouraging students to discover and pursue their interests, talents, and passions, Creekside Charter School and its community partners enable students to become self-motivated, competent, lifelong learners who are active contributors to the community, while pursuing academic excellence.
