School Accountability Report

School Accountability Reports are available online on the Colorado Department of Education’s Web site, or parents can link to it via Cherry Creek School District’s Web site at

The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) annually issues the School Accountability Reports, also known as SARS or School Report Cards, for each school in the state. They include information about the school's academic performance, CSAP results, safety and discipline incidents, student/teacher ratio, teacher qualifications and how taxpayer dollars are spent.

CDE gives each school a rating of either Unsatisfactory, Low, Average, High or Excellent. More than 60 percent of Cherry Creek Schools were rated Excellent or High. No school in the Cherry Creek School District has ever received a Low or Unsatisfactory rating.

New this year is the Colorado Growth Model. The Growth Model compares each student's academic growth to students in the same grade throughout Colorado who had similar CSAP scores in the past year. Ninety-three percent of Cherry Creek schools showed High or Typical growth on the model.

High Plains' rating from CDE is High and the Growth rating is also High. We are especially pleased with our Growth rating. As mentioned previously, the growth rating measures the academic growth of students from their performance in the previous year. We hope you are able to take the time to look over our school report.  Please contact the school if you have any questions about our School Accountability Report.
