It might help if you include where it is located I Googled it and found it was located in Manatee county-Palmetto. Is this correct?

I don't know anything about it but there are many people that post that live in Manatee that should be able to offer an opinion.

Buffalo Creek is a great school. I teach for Manatee county. It's a very new school and was just built last year. It has an A rating as far as I know, but since it's so new it may not have an official rating though. It's in a nice area also, it's out East and is far from the trashy areas that can be found inland in the county

Default Buffalo Creek

I was recently a student at Buffalo Creek, and it was probably one of the worst schools I have ever enrolled in. The administration was very poor, and most of the teachers were not involved and didn't love what they were doing, and had no love for their job, which made those classes absolutely horrid. I went there for 7th grade (the first year it was opened) and half of 8th grade, and I switched over to Carlos E. Haile, which was such a breather compared to what I had come from. For my 6th grade year I went to Manatee School for the Arts, and Buffalo Creek was much better than that, but if I were to choose again I would not go back there. The school is not very academically challenging and although they might have a lot of fancy "things" they don't teach with them or use them in any way. It is also a little rough as far as the kids go and you have to have a very strong head on your shoulders because the administration or teachers certainly don't do much about it. Hope this helps, and good luck with your decision!
