Cherry Creek High School offers rigorous classes with experienced teachers. My son has learned a lot. The teachers have adapted well to the COVID-19 pandemic in preparing the kiddos for their AP tests.
I wish there was greater racial diversity at the school.
The campus is beautiful, but huge! I checked my son's phone step count one day and he had 10,000 steps. The athletic programs are strong, but huge.

It brings all of the aspects of a high school experience together. Academic excellence, a dedication to sports and extracurricular activities, educated and renowned faculty, and a college-like campus that will teach you a variety of skills early on!
Cherry Creek High School is guilty of being a large, mostly white, affluent school with many students being socioeconomically above average. However, despite this, Creek's staff and administration take great effort to create a welcoming and tolerant school environment, supporting student organizations of Black, Hispanic, and Asian focus, as well as hosting seminars to educate their teachers on the LGBTQ+ community. The academics and professors are well-funded and paid, all of which is reflected on students' high AP scores and college readiness. I can't speak for all students, but the countless academic opportunities offered were invaluable for me and I enjoyed my time at CCHS despite not being as rich or white as my peers.
