Hunter's Creek Elementary School

Background & History

Hunter’s Creek Elementary School opened August 15, 1994. It is located in a rapidly growing community and draws its population from the Hunter’s Creek community. The school serves Kindergarten – 5th grade. The many countries currently represented on campus represent a microcosm of the world with its wide variety of cultures.

The school offers a wide range of academic programs as well as the following support programs: English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD), Dual Language Enrichment (DLE) Program, Guidance Programs, Enrichment,  Mentoring, Advising, Guiding and Instructing Children (MAGIC), Primary Varying Exceptionalities, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Adaptive Physical Education, Language Arts Resource, Strings Programs, academic enrichment for Extended Day, and Speech/Language to meet the needs of all students in our unique community.

The success of Hunter’s Creek Elementary can be attributed to the cooperative efforts made by students, staff, parents, and community all working together. The community service involvement earned them state recognition as a “Five Star School,” and their instructional program and student achievement earned a grade of “A” from the Florida Department of Education.

Learning Context

The school is based on two-way dual language programs owing to the culturally and linguistically diverse population in its community. Instead of separating students according to their primary language, they are placed together to learn from one another about their language and culture. Teachers do not translate in a dual language class, but they maintain instruction in one language for the entire lesson, instead. Peer support and communicative interactions are frequently encouraged. The goal is to have 50% of the instructional time in Spanish and 50% in English. Students receive instruction in both languages for reading and language arts skills. The school’s vision entails an intense focus on student achievement and sustained community engagement.
