Message from the Board
Cherry Creek Schools Board of Education
Welcome to the Cherry Creek School District, where we are constantly expanding our vision of excellence to ensure that each and every one of our more than 54,500 students is prepared for success in the world that awaits them.

Kindergarteners in the class of 2029 will face a world that looks much different from the one our graduating seniors will enter in 2017. That’s why the Cherry Creek School District is focused on innovation, relevancy and real-world experiences. We are emphasizing the skills students will need in the jobs of the future: communication, critical thinking, adaptability and teamwork. We have strengthened our graduation requirements and are expanding our career and technical education opportunities to multiply the pathways students have to both college and careers.

These steps enhance the educational excellence that already exists in Cherry Creek Schools. We take pride in our safe neighborhood schools, outstanding classroom teachers and programs that meet students’ individual needs. Our programs 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.  

The Cherry Creek School District is the second-largest employer in Arapahoe County and is #92 on the Forbes list of 500 of America’s Best Large Employers. We are ranked the highest of just seven Colorado organizations to make the list and we are the only school district in Colorado to be selected.

We know that strong schools contribute to strong property values and strong communities.  We will continue to strengthen the excellence that is Cherry Creek Schools so we can fulfill our mission, “To inspire every student to think, to learn, to achieve, to care.”
