My daughter is currently a sophomore at this school and has had nothing but great experiences here. The IB Program is exceptional, and they have a ton of opportunities here. A lot of people worry about sending their kid to such a large school, but there are soooo many different groups and organizations along with every sport imaginable for them to fit in to. The teachers give the kids every opportunity to meet after school for study groups/reviews. The parents really work together to volunteer to make Cherokee trail a great school.
Principal only cares about sports - not music. It would be nice to have more support for the music department from the administration. Teachers are wonderful and supportive of their departments.
Amazing school that has helped nurture me into a better student and a better person
As with many of the recent posts, I can't say enough about CTHS - it's been great! My son will be graduating from the IB program this year, and has really benefited from the world view it presents. It also fosters involvment with extra-curricular activities, as well as community involvement. I'm proud of his accomplishments and proud of what CTHS has done to help him. I worked for the school district, and know first hand that some other schools continue to struggle, but at CTHS the students are in a caring environment where they are challenged to succeed - and do!
Phenominal with AP and IB courses, as well as extremely qualified and passionate teachers. Activities as well as athletics are well organized,discplined and growth generating. Music dept. unsurpassed.
This school is amazing! I went here from 10th-12th grade. It's really easy to fit in with the great diversity in all the students. :) The sports are great too. Go cougars! -so much better than East High in Denver.
I'm a parent of a 12 grader, and had been at that school since 9th grade. We were from Michigan. And her grades was terrible and she was struggling. My daughter wanted to stay with her grandmother and it was during school year. To make the story short. She moved with her grandmother and went to Cherokee Trail High. Her grades has been improving. She is now bringing home A's & B's. I want to thank all her teachers and counselors for their support. Mrs. D. Schmidt, I would like to take this opportunity in writing also. Thank you very much for your guidiness.
My children transferred to Cherokee Trail form Grandview and it was the best decision we have ever made. The staff is very involved and helpful in all aspects of student life. The students are very polite and supportive and do not let stereotypes divide them. My children are ecstatic to go to school every morning. The school really involves the family and the community in all activities. This is by far the best school to send your children. Go Cougars!
this school is the best school a student can go to i went to this school for two years and i have never been to a scahool as good as this one if anyone lives near this school and is about to enter high school i highly recommend this school in my 2nd year there i was alredy learning senior classes and i was taking the easy classes because i didnt know what high school was like but trust me this is the best school there is
I think this is an okay school. I was in IB and it is an upbeat class, it shows great potentional students. The creativity in the art department is magnificant. I love it. This school is okay for me. It could be a bit better with cleanliness, but I think thats about it. (; The good stuff~
I currently have a junior attending CTHS and his older brother graduated in 2007. I feel both have received an excellent education and high school experience. Teachers and Coaches both have been a wonderful influence on both my boys who run track and cross country. I highly recommend CTHS.
CTHS is a great school! The IB programme is outstanding. The teachers have awesome credentials. My children love getting up in the morning and going to school. Ms. Gregory is a wonderful, approachable principal. It's only going to get better
After one of two children graduated, it is more than obvious how political this school is, yes it is diversified, this graduation has reflected the who's who as in who is the richest and politically involved with its student Valedictorian's as well as other honors. My graduated child has maintained a 4.0 or better since 8th grade and during the ceremony, was selected for only one award. It is a shame that the taxes we pay living close to this school do not reflect benefits for everyone's child. I hope things will change for the better for our youngest now attending CTHS.
awsome school great people excellent teaching highly recomened school! probly the best school in colrado thats what i think
Cherokee Trail is absolutely amazing. We are thrilled to have our kids attending such a wonderful school. Our daughter is in the IB program...a fabulous program that will give her a tremendous edge on other students starting college. We are thrilled to be part of such a fabulous school and community. Couldn't be happier.
I attend this school and it is absolutely amazing. People stereotype it as the 'preppy' 'rich' school. Its not. We are a diversified school. I love this school. Its beautiful, state of the ark, and perfect. Send your kids here! It's absolutelly amazing.
I love CTHS its a school full of opportunities some may say it lame or others may envy us but CTHS is a leader in our school district. All the faculty and staff creates a special bond with each student and they help you succeed no one is a failure and CTHS assures you that. This school is full of potential and of very talented and gifted people. Diversity is seen within the school making it easier for everyone to fit in. If I could change schools today I wouldn't because a school like CTHS I could never find.
