The classes here are really good and teachers are for the most part amazing. I especially like their Computer Graphic Design classes, where you can get certified in Adobe Photoshop for a super inexpensive price! Like half of the people are stuck up rich kids, but I never really talked to anyone, so it's fine. I transferred from Rampart, because that school wasn't the best, and I really liked Pine Creek, so that was awesome. Also, the school wifi sucks like half the time, so hopefully they fix that.

Pine Creek High School allows students great opportunities to choose a wide variety of classes, sports, and advanced/honors'/AP classes. It is set in the most beautiful Colorado landscapes and has updated its safety recently by having armed security and check in at the front of the school. The sports teams at Pine Creek High School are consistently up for state titles (especially football, baseball, and wrestling). The lunches are offered by a variety of restaurants such as Chick fil a and Pizza Hut as well as offering Chinese food, subs, and healthier options. The school has many opportunities to get early college credit through AP classes, honors classes, and a partnership with Pikes Peak Community College for technical classes.
I started at Pine Creek as a freshman and I was new to the district. I felt very welcomed and comfortable with the environment. The teachers helped me when I struggles and I was never afraid to ask them questions. They offer lots of clubs which helped me find my closest friends. The sports are great and the school spirit rises above any other schools in our district. Something I would change is the class help. They should establish a tutoring system for students who don't have flexible schedules and need extra help in challenging classes. Around testing season, they should have certain study groups for specific classes, especially AP classes.
