    "Extremely committed teachers, who truly care about their student's success! Challenging courses,amazing facilities (5 Gymnasiums, Baseball Diamond, Stadium, etc. etc!). Into Athletics? No Problem, over 20 sports (eg, CCHS has won every tennis state title since 1971!) . Into Debate? MUN? Drama? Creek has over 200 clubs for everyone. Basically, people from any background, with any interest, and any academic level can be the best at this school in terms of academic/extracurriculars. The campus is astounding, being an architecturally beautiful campus of 100 acres, emphasis on nature! However, where the negative comes in is the elitism and social structure. Students are incredibly wealthy, and like to flaunt it through their numerous cliques- and I first-hand witnessed awful social discrimination and exclusion towards students of low income background. Minorities will never really fit in at this school, and there is a very detrimental drug culture (including hard drugs- due to the wealth cited above). The extreme affluence is what seems to ruin the culture of learning, and the powerful pros of academic and athletic opportunity must be weighed against the destructive social environment"

    "My child is a recent graduate of Cherry Creek and I volunteered in one of the associations he was involved . I agree with the parent who cited the general social discrimination with a huge clique and drug problem. I saw it first hand. We choose this high school for the Chinese program. As a low income family very little assistance was ever offered, even when we asked and knew programs were available. We could not afford several of the field trips and my child was outcast due to this. Due to my child's determination he did graduate in the top 2% of his class and now attends and Ivy. There were several great teachers who inspired him but just as many who were little assistance due to our "social status". The first counselor he had was worthless since we were low income. He had a new counselor his senior year who made a huge difference . The school is superficial (including many teachers who pander to the wealthy), and only now , that my child is at a top university, is he telling all of the times he was discriminated by staff for being low income."

    "In terms of academic/athletic excellence and opportunity- CCHS is as superb of a school as can be plausibly found. Facilities and campus are simply stunning, and the choice available to students in terms of classes, sports, and clubs is simply unmatched in the entire state of Colorado. HOWEVER, in terms of social structure , Cherry Creek represents elitism at its ugliest. Taking into account that its area is the 6th richest in the entire United States of America, there is little acceptance to be found and general social discrimination with a huge clique and drug problem. It is an amazing school if one is accepted well and quickly, but any that do not fit the cookie cutter model will find themselves ousted (socially) after some time. Would recommend this school to any that are willing to sacrifice their morals and personalities to fulfill and be exposed to the astounding opportunities and committed teaching staff."

    "Cherry Creek is a TERRIFIC school if your child is generally a confident, responsible, mature person. Cherry Creek also seems to be working on improving its services for less mature, or less motivated kids. Great teachers and a terrific variety of classes and extracurricular options, in our experience!"

    "Both of our kids went to school here and they both loved it. We are middle class, not rich. There are plenty of academic opportunities and extracurricular activities."
