    "Wonderful school, teachers and principal. We moved from a private school to Cherokee and I had high expectations - and Cherokee has exceeded them! The teachers really care about your kids, the principal cares just as much and every time I am at the school I see him in the kids classrooms, he responds to emails, listens and tries to fix concerns. My child is advanced and still finds enough challenges in the classroom. The APT works extremely hard on fundraising and on fun events to make the school better. The parents are out of this world involved and you can tell everyone here cares deeply about the kids. Highly recommend this school!"

    "I have to say I am amazed at the experience my daughter and i have had at Cherokee. I pulled my daughter from Hopi in hopes that another school would not label her, but would observe and make suggestions for a way to break through her shell to enhance her learning ability. Her teacher immediately took action and made suggestions and got her in a reading and math program to fit her needs and level. She is now w excelling and loves reading and math. I do not know what I would have done if it weren't for the teachers and staff at Cherokee. We are so blessed."

    "Cherokee Elementary School is one of the finest schools in the state! Our daughter receives special education and we could not be happier with Judy Crosby and her team. Walt Chantler is a 5 star principal. Well respected by all. Our daughter has been with 3 teachers now, all of which are first class."

    "The parent that wrote the autism classroom review is way off. First of all, both the autism teachers at Cherokee are certified and highly qualified special education teachers. I have worked, as a parent of a regular education student, with the primary special education teacher. I watched her included students throughout the day, even students who have limited language and had difficulties with academics because of cognitive delays. Her assistants are amazing and the students made leap and bounds of growth. This teacher was new to Cherokee last year (2011/2012), and she created a program that included all her students. Although I am a parent volunteer at Cherokee and not a teacher, I can tell you that this teacher was amazing. I have never seen children make so much growth. I feel sorry for the person that wrote this review as it is obviously unfounded, as to my knowledge ALL in the Scottsdale Unified School District teachers are highly qualified. I know parents who were begging to get into her program! How sad! It's parents like these that drive amazing teachers out of the classroom. Things should not be posted if a person does not have the correct information!"
