Huh, interesting review below with the "suffers from overcrowding." In fact, there are three classes going on in each space when you get beyond kindergarten. For those of us who understand the Dry Creek model and are part of the Dry Creek family, this isn't an issue. In fact, it is part of why this ...  Read more

This school suffers from overcrowding. They have two classes going on at the same time in the same room. Then they turn around and question why kids can't focus. What a joke.

Wow! Six years with a child at Dry Creek is coming to an end, and it's overall been a wonderful experience, for our child and for us as parents. They offer many extra choices for kids' activities, they seem consistent with their teaching philosophy from year to year, they seem to work well with the ...  Read more

I wish I could give this school a higher rating than 5. My daughter was previously in the Aurora district, which you could tell they lacked the education. My daughter came to this school last year in November and they tested her levels, which she was a little behind in some areas but this school cared ...  Read more

I agree with the post of December 30,2010. With one exception, the teachers are top notch. However, not a lot of welcoming parents. If you are in with the PTCO good for you, if not, they certainly wont extend themselves. It boasts of Spanish, any exposure is good but a native speaker should be teaching. ...  Read more

Dry Creek was our 1st of 2 top-rated schools in the Cherry Creek School District and we left CCSD and went private for many legitimate reasons. Our feelings were not simply hurt, nor were our children s feelings. And our children did not have any special needs. The problem with such a forum as this ...  Read more

I have had kids in Dry Creek for the past 6 years and it has been an awesome school for both. They have resources to help those who need extra support, not just volunteers but actual reading specialists and educated teachers assistants. Parent volunteerism is high also. The goal of the school is to ...  Read more
