I have loved the past four years at Creek. It offers students a lot more freedom than other students and I feel it has readily prepared me for college next year. The majority of the teachers are respectful and professional. I have been given several opportunities through my teachers for internships, jobs, and service projects. Although Creek isn't the most accepting or diverse of schools, I still love it!

Being in college now, I realized how well Creek has prepared me to be in college. From all the AP classes they offer to the amazing teachers, Creek has taught me so much. At Vanderbilt University, I have always reflected back on things I learned at Creek to help me in my classes now. There is so much that Creek covers that many other high schools across the nation do not. They are without a doubt the best public school in Colorado!
Cherry Creek High School cares about its students and goes to great length to help them succeed on many levels. The administration is very attentive and helpful, and the teachers are available for assistance throughout the week. There are many state of the art features throughout the school, and the music program is outstanding. Athletics is a strength of the school as there are a very wide variety of opportunities as well as, again, state of the art facilities. There is excellent communication offered to parents and an opportunity to really be involved and connected with your student's progress. Safety is a key feature of the school, and although it is a campus style, the school takes every precaution to be pro-active in keeping students safe and parents informed. Cherry Creek has been a great school for our son.
