Open Quote My child has attended this school for two years and I am ready to change school districts. Everything this school does makes absolutely no sense to me. They prefer children to ride the bus instead of getting dropped off and if you have your child dropped off/picked up, it is a huge hassle just getting around the buses to get your child. Breakfast and lunch is basically yogurt, orange slices and milk. There is a main entree, usually pizza or a corndog, but everything else is just yogurt, a piece of fruit and juice or milk. The kids running around outside after school waiting to be picked up or get on the bus are not supervised. Whoever happens to be outside, whether a teacher or the principal, are likely talking on their phones or yelling at someone instead of watching the kids. There is no communication between teachers and parents. I did not have a single parent/teacher conference during my child's year of kindergarten. When it came time for their kindergarten graduation they decided not to invite the parents and just go ahead with the ceremony and not let anyone know about it. I also paid for a class picture that I never received. The office staff has never been rude but they are completely clueless to any question you ask them and never offer an answer, just a blank stare. I am hoping to move soon and get my child out of the cherry creek district, which I believe is horrible. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
