Called Subaru-U, Our students and instructors now have access to Subaru's entire technical training library used for their dealership personnel.

With the recently approved change in start time for schools in Cherry Creek, all students in 3rd through 11th
grade are being invited to participate in a survey on sleep habits,
daily routine, and general wellbeing. While existing sleep research
indicates the change in start times will have an overall positive
effect, we are committed to understanding the impact this change has on
our students, parents and staff. With this understanding, we can
determine what areas of additional support, if any, may be needed as we
make this transition.
Download a copy of the survey to review and then check your email for more information.
