    "Uniforms that are way too expensive and if you want to buy used at the uniform sale it is all picked over by the organizers. Do you want to go to a public school but still have to pay inordinate amounts of money? This is the place for you. The principal sees parents and students as $$$. Train to the test? You bet, this is the place where you will learn how TCAPS are administered and how to take them (how has the state/federal not caught this yet?) This school COULD be a shining star in the CCSD BUT they chose to think "It is our way or you are an idiot!" Students learn in unique ways but the staff is trained to keep a chair warm. I would suggest staying away from this school. I made it through but at what cost? Last, after all of it there are volunteer hours, senate, after school activities but relatively little to no emphasis on sports. Sports is how some children shine, they become leaders, they compete to win. If you don't have that competition there is zero outlet for assertive or dominant behavior and the children are expected to "fall in line!" "zero tolerance for bullying!" (which has been shown to be detrimental) Google it and educate yourself with citaion!"

    "The principal is very money hungry. There are fees for everything under the sun. I do not find him warm to the children. The school is run like the military. He even got the students to write a letter to the school board shaking them down for more funding."

    "CCA is a great school. The teachers honestly care about the children; there is a strong academic focus, and the school teaches strong values. It has a limited sports program, but a growing music program. Our daughter loves it there. We strongly recommend it."

    "I am going into 7th grade, but I've been here since kindergarden. A previous comment was that Cherry Creek Academy had serious bullying problems, which I totally agree to. I have been bullied here, and I don't look weird, have any mental problems, smell bad, etc. but I still get bullied, but not as severely. I'm not going to go into some huge sob story, but I have been punched in the neck, tackled, and plenty of name calling, too. The teachers are ok, they usually don't care about the way-too-strict uniform policy and never seem to notice any of the bullying happening here. Some teachers have told us how much they hate us and how terrible we are. Overall, this school is good academically except for the "math program", Saxon Math. I recommend not going there at all for the middle school, but elementary school is okay. Whether you're in elementary or middle school, though, go to the neighborhood schools instead of this uppity, dramatic, rich, terrible charter school."

    "Cherry Creek Academy was a good alternative to a mediocre neighborhood school. My kids were bright, but needed to be challenged and CCA does challenge every child to do the best of their ability. It is diverse and the focus is on academics, so it is perfect for average kids as they can thrive academically without as many social distractions. That being said, there is some low level (think annoying sibling type behavior) bullying and in the past, favoritism toward some children and families. Also, your kids can suffer socially as they may not have many friends in their neighborhood. Overall, if you want a focused academic environment for your child, it's a great choice."
