Welcome to Overall Creek Elementary! We are home to approximately 1,000 Kindergarten through 6th graders on the West of Murfreesboro. Overall Creek was one of the first STEM designated schools in Tennessee. In 2019 and 2021, we were recognized as a TN Reward School for student growth by the State. In 2020 and 2021 Overall Creek was recognized as an RTI2B Gold Model of Demonstration School by Tn Behavior Supports Program.

At OCE we are committed to providing authentic learning using high-quality materials that integrate hands-on experiences, interdisciplinary approaches, and real-world applications. Through engaging projects, cutting-edge technology, and the arts, we aim to nurture students' innate talents, ignite their imagination, and equip them with the knowledge, skills, and mindset needed to tackle complex challenges and make positive contributions to the world.

On any given day you can find students walking the creek to learn about ecosystems and writing in our outdoor classroom, coding Ozobots to identify historic battle locations on a map, 3D printing student-engineered tire treads, studying erosion by interacting with our real life EmRiver system, or harvesting crops with our farm to school educator. Our teachers strive to cultivate a collaborative and inclusive learning environment that fosters exploration, critical thinking, and a passion for learning by inspiring innovation and empowering our Otters to be problem solvers and creative thinkers every day.

We are preparing our students to thrive in an ever-evolving global society. To accomplish this, we believe it takes all stakeholders being involved. We depend on our families, community, and business partners to share their talent and expertise, so our students are exposed to a variety of career pathways. Together, we are building a community of fearless learners who embrace innovation and limitless possibilities.
