I've replaced two boxes that disappeared and changed the location.

Spring Creek Academy was established by Karen Morrell. A local divorce attorney's daughter was a gymnast at World Olympic Gymnastics Academy, and she couldn't keep up with the load at public school. He asked Karen to home school her, and she agreed. Within two weeks, five other gymnasts joined them. Initially, they studied at the gym. Karen was unable to get a loan, so the attorney bought the land at Spring Creek and Custer and held it for five years, when Karen was able to get a loan. The attorney sold it to her for what he paid. Olympians Carly Patterson and Nastia Luikin attended the school.
Go to the Spring Creek Academy High School, 6000 Custer Road. The school is located on the southeast corner of Custer and Spring Creek Parkway, behind the strip shopping center. Go to the high school student lot east of the building. There is a bush-like tree at the southwest corner of the lot. It is among the trunks of the bush/tree.
