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.

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!
I enjoyed Cherry Creek very much. As a school with high standards, the school provides support to all students academic-wise and mentally. The teachers overall are nice and knowledgeable, helping students with any work or issue. There are many clubs and sports students can attend, and the school spirit is immensely present. Fairly large campus with classes of roughly 30 students. With a wide range of courses, from core subjects to extracurricular activites, Cherry Creek also prepares the students early for college.
