"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!"
"Amazing, and extremely committed teachers, who truly care about their student's success! Challenging course options, mind-blowing facilities (5 Gymnasiums, Baseball Diamond, Stadium, Track, Football Field, Auditorium, 2 Cafeterias, etc. etc!). Counselors were so helpful, and Mr.Silva is doing a great job as principal! Into Athletics? No Problem, over 20 sports (eg, CCHS has won every tennis state title since 1971!) . Into Art? 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. The atmosphere is astounding, with an architecturally beautiful campus of 100 acres, emphasis on nature! Although some may complain about the elitism due to the existence of very wealthy communities in close proximity, it does not mean that we are exclusive or bullies to those of lesser income! Having lived all over the world, I had the best year of my school life when I attended this school! What's not to like about Cherry Creek?"
"Many claim that Cherry Creek High is a "rich kid's school", and while this may be true, it doesn't seem to make a difference! Very friendly, open students! Despite its large size (almost 4000 students) you can always find a niche here. The teachers I had were some of the most caring people I have ever met, and the counselors and administration truly care about students' success. The fine arts and academic areas are amazing with over 100 clubs devoted to just these. In terms of sports, CCHS is a powerhouse with over 200 state championships. When you go this school, you truly feel as if you fit in and this was definitely true for me. The elitist feel is mostly untrue, and this school is unmatched in its success and opportunities. Go Bruins!"
"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."
"As a former student at CCHS, I can truly say that having a diploma from this high school has prepared me more for college than many other high schools in Colorado and the nation. Cherry Creek offers a challanging and rewarding environment where any student can succeed if they put the effort in. The teachers are some of the finest around and truly care about the success of their students. As for preparing students for college, it quickly becomes apparent that going to CCHS isn't the same as other high schools. Naive freshman soon mature into responsible young adults as they are exposed to a more collegiate-type environment, including off-campus privledges, choosing their own classes, and overall more freedom. The only negative about CCHS is that unless you are very skilled in a specific sport, don't plan on making it onto any of the cut teams. CCHS takes their sports very seriously and therefore are very selective. I am honored to be able to say that I attended one of the best high schools in the country. Students not only recieve an excellent education, but will make lasting friendships and learn invaluable lessons during their time at Cherry Creek High School."
