    "I could not agree more with the previous posts. If we wanted to, we could send our children to a private school. We feel it is much more important for the overall development of a child to be a part of the neighborhood school close to home. Our goal is to raise self cofindent children who feel connected to their community. Cherokee is a great place for a strong foundation."

    "I've had 3 kids attend Cherokee, by choice. I have driven my kids from a different district after shopping many schools, public, private and charter, in and around my area and found Cherokee to be the perfect fit and the best public school we have encountered. The teachers are mostly top notch who really care about seeing their students excel. The special programs for those who need extra help at the high end or low end are spectacular and the principal has the kids and their needs met first, while maintaining a good relationship with the parents and teachers. The classes are a bit crowded as are all public schools but the funding from the parent teacher association helps maintain a nice ratio with extra aides in the classrooms. I believe wherever your kids are in school it is essential to be as active as you can to make it the best it can be. You will not be disappointed in Cherokee. It is a highly excelling neighborhood school where the parents and staff alike care a great deal about seeing each student excel to his/her highest ability."

    "We have the means to send our children to any private school and are so happy and thankful we chose Cherokee. Besides the fantastic academics and brilliant staff the fact we chose our neighborhood school has helped feel invested in the neighborhood and have met the most wonderful families. We are so blessed to have Cherokee in our own backyard!"

    "This is one of the finest schools in Arizona. Cherokee elementary is definitely ahead of the curve. Very polite staff and teachers. Principal Walter Chantler is an extremely kind individual who cares a lot. He is a great leader. Classroom size are a a bit large, but that is par for the course these days. Can not say enough good things about this school and its leadership."
