This is a great school. We love the new Principle Mr. Duncan. He is a good leader and cares about the kids (he takes the time to learn their names, and the kids love him). The location is great (right next to the famous Springville Art Museum). The staff is great. We have enjoyed getting to know the teachers and front desk staff. The PTA is very active at this school and is a good asset and support to the teachers.
This is my son's third year at Cherry Creek, and we absolutely love this school! The teachers, principal, and staff have all been wonderful, and really go above and beyond for their students. They don't seem to be understaffed (they have SIX first grade classes this year), so the children have the benefit of smaller class sizes to ensure they get the attention they need to thrive. The PTA also does an amazing job at organizing fundraisers and family events. I also appreciate that they acknowledge and praise all departments -- the head custodian is great with the kids and everyone knows his name. The atmosphere at Cherry Creek cannot be beat!
Cherry Creek has been fine. My sons attended Westside in Springville previously and had more problems with other students there. Their test scores and attitude about school improved after switching to Cherry Creek. Their principal is much better and more involved than Westside's.
Cherry Creek is such a **GREAT** school! Being a teacher there, I know how hard working each and every teacher at our school is. Every single one of us is striving to do their best to educate the students in our classes, with or without parent support. I don't know a single teacher who doesn't go above and beyond what is expected of them. We have a welcoming, friendly environment and some of the best teachers, interns, and staff you can find!!
I could not be happier with Cherry Creek. From the time we first stepped into the school we have been treated so kindly and everyone has been so helpful. We've been at the school for 4 years now with a new kindergartener starting and are so excited to be attending Cherry Creek. I have loved the teachers! They have gone above and beyond the call of duty and have really helped my child develop in her education. We have had nothing but positive experiences at Cherry Creek.
My children have gone to this school for almost a year now. I have been extremely disappointed in the quality of everything at this school. From teachers, so safety issues, to professionalism, this school has a lot that is lacking. The front office staff are very unprofessional. The cafeteria is a complete ZOO, the decibel level in the cafeteria is unreal. The school is very unsafe, and extremely unprofessional/unsafe about busing issues, and switching kids to/from different buses. I wish I would have known this before my kids started school here. It is going to be hard to switch them schools now that they have all of their friends, but they are not learning the things they should, and I don't feel that they are safe there either.
My children attended this school for 2 years. It was not a good experience. We have since then attended 3 different schools and all 3 have been better. The teachers that my children had at Cherry Creek did the bare minimum. I was the homeroom mother for my son's class and throughout the year only one other mother helped with the class activities despite my constant pleas for help. I would not send my children back to this school.
