We're moving and wanted to get an idea of where might be the best place to live in terms of the local grammar schools our two kids would be going to. Thanks very much in advance! --BEM

There is no school district specifically called "Cherry Hills". Are you planning to live in the town of Cherry Hills, or do you mean the Cherry Creek School District?

Cherry Hills Village is the CCSD anyway.

OP, its a HUGE district, there is no single best school. You will have to narrow things down and do research on the schools in the locations you are considering.

Oh, sorry, I meant to write Cherry Creek School District. And, no, I wouldn't be able to afford to live in Cherry Hills Village, so that elementary school is out of the question. Thanks again in advance….

To emm74, I am not considering any particular location. What I choose will depend to some extent on the quality of the elementary school I'd be sending my kids to. Thanks….

A little more information will help us help you narrow things down.

1) Where is work?

2) What's your housing budget?

3) Do your children have any special needs?

4) What is your high school preference? CCSD offers six high schools, about a dozen middle schools, and forty-something elementary schools. If you want your kids to attend Grandview, for instance, that narrows things down considerably.

There are over 40 elementary schools. And it covers over 100 square miles. I think you need to narrow the field based on job location, etc. and then you can do more investigation on the more likely possibilities.

I think I saw recently that 2014's most highly-ranked CCSD elementary school was Dry Creek, which feeds to West Middle School and Cherry Creek High School. That said, all of the schools in that general area are very, very good. Choosing between them often boils down to what kind of learning environment you want for your child and where you can manage to find housing. I don't believe any of them would disappoint.

Thanks for the advice so far. I'd be working in Aurora. So, location I guess is an issue as I hear that rush hour traffic out there can be brutal.
