Open Quote They are not qualified for special needs children with learning disabilities. I’m talking very basic special needs. I do not recommend this school. Speak with Cherry Creek District about your options before being forced to attend here. I had two children that had to go here and both failed miserably. I switched them to another District and they both are honors students now exceeding beyond expectations and have nice friends, whereas they were both bullied in this school and both of our children are 6 years apart so we have dealt w this school for years in the past at different times and never were happy either time.

Open Quote Nepotism among parents who are teachers that have students at the school. Those students are awarded and treasured over others. Nothing special about this school. Helicopter parents abound. 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.
