Our School

Kersey Creek Elementary School building

Kersey Creek Elementary School, established in 2006, is home to 755 (and growing) caring Comets. We are proud to be a LEED school and are RAMP certified. We value the process of education and strive to create an innovative and creative learning opportunity for all students. We honor the partnership between our talented staff and supportive families. This collaboration fosters an educational environment of academic excellence.


Our commitment to giving back to our community is reflected in our participation in a variety of activities from food drives for the Christmas Mother to can tab collections for the Ronald McDonald House organizations. We invite you to be part of our community and the activities that occur throughout the year.

Relevance, Equity, Innovation

Students dressed up for the Fall Festival Haunted HallwayGroups such as reading ambassadors and STREAM buddies keep students voices heard and help students share in the learning process as they work together. Programs such as the 5th grade Career Cafe and Reading Olympics continue to be part of our offering.

We continue to develop a culture of literacy with Kersey’s Literacy Month and PAWS to read. Authors such as Marc Tyler Nobleman and Chris Grabenstein have visited Kersey Creek presenting to grades k–5 on how to be a writer and the writing process.

Create, Think, Grow

Learning is always a joyful experience at the Creek. We are very blessed to have a community of teachers, administrators, parents, and business partners who support our mission to create, learn, and grow. Join us as we continue to build the rich heritage that is the essence of Hanover County Public Schools.
