I enjoy my high school a lot and the teachers and staff are extremely nice and helpful. The teachers know their subjects really well and Creek has tons of fun clubs, sports and activities for everyone at creek so no one is ever excluded. There is a club for everyone! The only minor complaint I have about Cherry Creek high school is how strict they are about landyards. You will get sent to the dean without a warning if you are caught even for the first time not wearing it. Other than that I enjoy attending Cherry Creek high school.

Even though it is my first year at Cherry Creek High School, I love it already. People always say Cherry Creek is full of spoiled brats and that they are very prejudice because they are a mostly all white school. That is not true. I have joined lots of clubs and they welcome color there. They have lots of groups and clubs that support race, for example the No Place For Hate club. It's amazing. The academics there is very challenging which is why I love it. The staff actually care about the students and the principle get to know all of us. They have amazing team spirit!!! Overall I think Cherry Creek High School is a great school to be at because the people there are nice and have the same mindset as you; to achieve your goals and to be something in life.
Cherry Creek has a reputation of being pretentious that it very much so lives up to. The faculty there are either a hit or miss, not a lot of middle ground between terrible teachers and ones that are so wonderful that they should be college professors. The students at Cherry Creek tend to be the same way. Students are either kind, friendly and caring or terrible people piggy-backing on their parents' money. There are so many people attending the high school that diversity has five stars. Student culture and traditions at this school are very strong. My parents attended Cherry Creek as well and I did some of the school traditions that they did 20 years ago.
