The Cherry Creek School district was more Average than Very Good or Excellent. I felt like you weren't noticed by the school or teachers if you were more on the introverted side unless its recognition to your academic success otherwise you're just a regular student to all the staff. Otherwise school spirit is definitely there, so the assemblies were very enjoyable. The learning experience for me was odd as for many of my peers had a similar experience. We felt as if some teachers did a poor job of teaching us the material in a way where it is engraved into our minds. Counselors were amazing though and touched base with every student in the grade and made sure each student was aware what the next step is in their life.

I loved how honest teachers were, and how often they did not give up on students. In my experience, only 2 teachers have quit because of students. Principals are the most supportive and inspirational speakers I have ever met. The students in the district are mainly the same all around; occurrences with racism are rare and everyone is generally accepting of people who don't look like them. Overall, I am proud to be a part of the Cherry Creek School District.
The academics at creek provide a really great range of opportunities and interests for students to get involved in. Especially with the new career and technical building, the district is able to cater towards students who learn hands on and need to prepare for the work force. There is unfortunately an incredibly great difference between the wealthy and poorer schools in the district. As a student at cherry creek high school, our school lacks diversity and is way too big. Especially for those interested in ivy leagues, creek’s ranking system is skewed and almost everyone at the school is overachieving and spoiled. There is also a great amount of anti-Semitic hate going around creek more recently.
