I am going into 7th grade, but I've been here since kindergarden. A previous comment was that Cherry Creek Academy had serious bullying problems, which I totally agree to. I have been bullied here, and I don't look weird, have any mental problems, smell bad, etc. but I still get bullied, but not as severely. I'm not going to go into some huge sob story, but I have been punched in the neck, tackled, and plenty of name calling, too. The teachers are ok, they usually don't care about the way-too-strict uniform policy and never seem to notice any of the bullying happening here. Some teachers have told us how much they hate us and how terrible we are. Overall, this school is good academically except for the "math program", Saxon Math. I recommend not going there at all for the middle school, but elementary school is okay. Whether you're in elementary or middle school, though, go to the neighborhood schools instead of this uppity, dramatic, rich, terrible charter school.
