“Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” - Educator Rita Pierson
As your elected representatives on the Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education, we are committed to providing your children with what they need to succeed in school and in life. That success begins with an outstanding classroom teacher.
Research shows that a qualified teacher is the most important factor in a child’s academic success. Fortunately, the Cherry Creek School District is filled with exceptional educators, people with a passion for teaching, a love of learning and a never-ending desire to help students realize their full potential. We are proud that our district has the third-highest number of National Board Certified teachers in the state, that 77% of our faculty members have advanced degrees and that they average 10 years’ experience. Cherry Creek Schools also has one of the lowest teacher turnover rates in the state.
Because of those outstanding classroom teachers, our students are able to grow and excel academically. They consistently score above state and national averages on assessments including the ACT and SAT tests. Our on-time graduation rate is 88.1% compared to the state average of 78.9%. Our graduates earn millions of dollars in scholarships annually. Most importantly, our students leave us with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in higher education, the military, the global workforce and our democratic society.
In addition to outstanding classroom teachers, we are proud to provide programs that meet students’ individual needs. They include Advanced Academic Services for advanced and gifted learners, Special Education for students with special needs and Language Supports and Services for our English language learners. We also offer AVID, Honors, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs to help all of our students excel academically.
In addition, students in Cherry Creek Schools can take part in nationally recognized programs in the arts, athletics and activities. Those opportunities allow students to have fun, make friends, discover and develop new talents and contribute to their community.
There is so much waiting for your child in Cherry Creek Schools! It’s our pleasure to welcome them to the 2017-2018 school year.
