Nancy Creek Elementary School
Nancy Creek Elementary School was built in 1970 and served the local area south of the perimeter for almost 40 years. Due to under utilization, in Fall 2008, Nancy Creek ES students were moved to Huntley Hills ES and Montgomery ES to make room for Kittredge and the high achievers magnet.

Over Crowding in Region 1
Over the last few years, DeKalb Schools has built 2 new elementary schools and rebuilt Austin elementary school.
