We have 3 children at Canyon Creek. We have really appreciated all the teachers our children have had. They help our oldest challenage herself and they give us lots of ideas to help our youngest two succeed. We love the principal and will miss her next year. There is a lot of areas for parent to get involved and lots of activities for the children to get involved in.

My family started at CC in 2008-09 school year when my daughter entered second grade. We were very apprehensive after a subpar experience in first grade at another local school, but Ms. Debbie Pearn made our 2nd grade year one to remember! When I realized what an outstanding teacher she was I quickly found myself volunteering in the classroom and more involved in the warm, welcoming organizations offered at CC. I think CC is extraordinary, too, in an area like SE Aurora because it is so diverse! We came from a school just across Arapahoe Road that had very little to a school that has several different cultures represented in EACH classroom! I love CC and recommend to anyone interested in a Cherry Creek school.

This is a wonderful school! I have a son who attended this school its opening year when he was in kindergarten. He was here through out his elementary 'career' and now is in the 6th grade at TRMS on the honor roll. I also have a daughter here now in the 2nd grade who is well on her way to following in her brothers footsteps! Couldn't be happier with all the teachers & staff!

This is a great school, with a lot of high achievers. This is where I think this school is lacking. They need to start ability-grouping by the 3rd grade, maybe have a teacher teach one grade level higher to meet the needs of the high achievers and to alliviate the GT teacher to focus on other thing than math. I don't think they are using their GT resources appropriately. I think they need to involve more technology like, pod-casting, extended research with the internet, involving real life situations in the GT lessons, not just a extension to the regular classroom curriculum. I just think they could be doing a lot more with their GT students.

Excellent Teachers, Excellent Classrooms, Challenging Work and a Great Community Environment. I couldn't be more happy with how well my son has grown both socially and academically since he started going to school here in just 3 months.

Both of my children attend Canyon Creek and I cannot say enough about the outstanding leadership and teachers there. Mrs Magro (1st grade) and Mrs Alden (5th grade) are both outstanding teachers as are the rest of the staff at Canyon Creek. I absolutely love this school and if you are moving into the area I highly recommend it.

I personally think this school is one in a million and I love it. Not only are the teachers good but the principal is great! She makes sure everyone is feeling comfortable and safe. Dr. O'Brien is a wonderful person in general and I am really going to miss her in the years to come. Another teacher that I love at this school is Ms. Tracy she is a great person who has great teaching techniques that my child and I loved. If you ever want a great school have you child attend this one.

My children attended Canyon Creek for three years. The principle was very accessible to my children and myself. The teaching staff was outstanding. We have moved but my daughter still wants to keep in touch with her teachers. The first grade reading program and curriculum was wonderful. My daughters teacher in particular was the most amazing teacher and human being I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. There is also an outstanding kindergarten teacher there. This school makes a great effort to have extra curricular activities as well. My children loved science and gym here. If you are moving into this area strongly consider any homes in this schools area.

This is an amazing school full of good staff and very involved parents. My daughters are so fortunate to be a part of this body. Dr.O'Brien and Mrs. Sloan as well as the very friendly office staff have literally made us feel welcome and have become a part of our extended family; especially being from out of state. We love it here!!!

Academic programs are very good. For the most part, the teachers are very good. Some better than others in relating and being flexible in teaching so that the child understands the lesson. All specials are at the school. Parent involvement is excellent. Parents bond with each other. The administration would fair better with more compassion for the children.

My experience with this school has been quite unfavorable. Parental involvement is only encouraged insofar as it means cutting, pasting or gluing. Parents who can think for themselves are politely belittled if they have non-traditional/liberal beliefs and are largely ignored by the administration. The administration seems unwilling to entertain the notion that times are changing, minds are opening and children need a little more than just the answer to 2+2. The administrators and teachers seem to all be of one mind, so introducing new ideas that will enrich the children's lives in novel ways - such as bringing 'humane education' into the classroom - will not be welcomed with open arms. Parents need to feel welcome in the school. Teachers and administrators need to be better role models and put into action themselves what they claim to be teaching the kids - respect for others.
