Cave Creek Unified School District Reviews

I went through the Cave Creek Unified School District all the way from elementary school through high school. My experience was great! This school district is very involved in the community which I loved! The teachers were always there to help and wanted the best for their students. I was involved in the cheerleading programs at both Sonoran Trails Middle School and at Cactus Shadows High School. Being apart of a team in this district gave me many opportunities to become involved in our community and at school. Many of the coaches and teachers in the district are alumni of the Cave Creek Unified School District, which speaks for how amazing of a community it is.

Been in the district for over 5 years now. It is a fantastic district with dedicated admin, teachers, and students. Great place to begin or continue your children's education. Students, you will get out of it what you put into it. If you join clubs and or play sports and make an effort to be outgoing in class, you will find the school experience more valuable and enjoyable. It won't be perfect at any school, no matter what review you read. Give CCUSD a shot!
I have been attending Cave Creek Unified School District since I was a Kindergartner and now I am currently going into my senior year of high school. Overall I've had an amazing experience at Cave Creek Unified School District. However, the teachers that are brought into the High School for the "regular" classes are not always the best and are unable to efficiently and effectively teach the subject. This is the case for most "regular" classes but taking advanced or honors classes the teachers have been exceptional.
