Creekside Middle School educates approximately 1,400 students in grades six through eight. We are proud of our diverse and dynamic school population. Our school is fully accredited by the Indiana Department of Education and the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement. The school is also a National Blue Ribbon Award and Four Star School recipient. Staff members participate in a wide-range of professional development activities that focus on both academic and social-emotional growth of the students. Many members of the staff have presented at local, national, and international educational seminars. Creekside's test scores consistently rank the school in the top three middle schools in Indiana. In 2023, Creekside's ILearn scores were again the best in the state among all public middle schools.
Creekside is part of the Carmel Clay Schools District and--along with two other middle schools, a high school, and eleven elementary schools--serves the city of Carmel and the township of Clay in southwestern Hamilton County, Indiana, just north of Indianapolis.

Our campus is located on the fast-growing western side of Carmel near the Michigan Road corridor.
