I've had two children through this school. The teachers and programs have changed based on the principal and available funding (the 4-stars). However, the interest in teaching and compassion for the kids is of highest quality.
My son was struggling to adjust to public school when we moved because he has been in a private school all his life, but his teacher made sure that he transitioned well. At first he was getting 3's and 4's, but towards the end of the year, his teacher helped him improve his performance and he was back to getting 1's and 2's again. This year, he is doing just as well as he did at his private school. The only complaint I have about this school is the calendar. This school is a track school, so the kids go to school all year. That makes it hard to plan summer vacations, etc, but the school is working to change the school to a traditional school year. Otherwise, I recommend this school to parents! The teachers are very nice!
Love this school! Just got out, and was definitely ready for a new school because they prepared just the right way. I love it! I also felt very safe and in good hands because even the teachers were my friends to watch my back.
The principal and staff truly care for the children at this school. They make great efforts to ensure the children get the best education possible. Those children that have special needs are supported fully with activities to stimulate their learning. This is a model school for the direction that public education should be headed.
WOW!! What a great school. Cherry Creek schools stand up to the highest standards possible when it comes to our children. I can't afford private school but I feel that Antelope Ridge is pretty close to the real deal. My son has ADHD but that hasen't't stopped him from learning, growing, improving himself and making the honor roll. The staff is able to think outside of the box and challenge him in ways that create excitement and fun. The principal and teachers communicate with each other and enjoy their jobs. I could not ask for a better school if I had built it myself! Send your children to this school. You will be glad you did!
I love this school. My daughter is there for the second year. She is thriving, making friends and getting many opportunities to do new things. The curriculum is challenging and she enjoys it. Her principle is active and involved in everything. He comes around in the morning and in the afternoon to greet parents. He comes into the classrooms. He genuinely seems to care about getting to know the students. The 'special' activities are wonderful. She has music, art, gym and technology. The teachers for each have been impressive. The gym teacher does many free extracuricular activities and my daughter really enjoys it. Last year, in Kindergarten, her music teacher taught all of them how to write music and how to play a song on the piano. I hope that we can have all our children go through this school.
