As a graduating senior this year, I am incredibly fond of Overland and all that it has given me in the past four years. When I came in as a freshman, the school resembled a jail, but now it is truly something to be proud of. Overland has come a long way. Our athletics, while not perfect, have improved ...  Read more

I too was partially dismayed by things I had heard about Overland High School while my son was a student at Prairie Middle School.

I work in various high schools in the metro area. Cherry Creek Schools are good schools and the teachers are held to high expectations. Overland has more economic challenges then more affluent neighborhoods so personally I feel that these teachers are some of the best in the state of Colorado. My daughter ...  Read more

I would never recommend anyone to attend Overland. I'm a current student, and it's horrible. I filled out my school-of-choice forms as soon as they were available. Teachers don't care, and students are allowed to do whatever they please. I sat in my math teacher's classroom to work on a test that I had ...  Read more
