Welcome Mr. Zinsmeiser

Director of ICHS Theater and Drama Program

Creek high school has a brand new theater – and a new theater teacher, too. Mr. Zinsmeister joins eleven other new teachers beginning in the district. Among the classes he’ll teach are Introduction to Theater, Acting and Script Analysis, Costume and Makeup, and Set Design and Construction. 

“This is a dream come true for me,” says Mr. Zinsmeister, who graduated from Clarion University and pursued acting and theater arts for years. He plans to run shows of all sizes throughout the year and hopes to establish a tradition for a spring musical.

Watch for next month’s spotlight of another new teacher.

Another reason Creek is a Great Place to Learn

“Snacking” on Books at Hills!

Hills Elementary students can reap rewards and hone their reading skills through a new book vending machine available at the school. The machine was acquired by the school PTO organization and students can earn tokens to receive a new book through the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program.

#CreekPrepares All Students for the Future – No matter which path they choose.

Creek’s Career Pathway Success Plan is a binder that begins for every student in 6th grade. With input from the student, parents/guardians and teacher, this organizer helps students understand their skills, aptitude and passions.

Our goal is for every student to graduate with a solid plan to enroll in college or other training, be employed in a career profession or enlist in the military.


For college bound students, Creek offers students opportunities to earn credits while still in high school in College Credit Plus. Creek also provides ACT/SAT preparation and tutoring and other college admissions support.


Creek offers career technical options that include: Information Technology, Interactive Media, Business and Administrative Services, Engineering and Science Technologies and more.


Creek educators help students at every level continually develop skills, habits and attitudes that can contribute to their success – regardless of where their life journeys take them. For many students, this aptitude is perfect for military enlistment, where they continue learning, seeing the world, and proudly serving our country.

Providing the Time and Support Students Need to be Successful.

Choose Creek for your kids.
