Celebrating Our 30th Anniversary

This year, we honor our past, celebrate our present and embrace our future as we look to the next thirty years of helping students learn, grow, and thrive.

News & Notes

The year was 1990. It was the year of the reunification of Germany, the first steps of the Internet, the release of Nelson Mandela, and the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope. It was also the launch of a new idea – a foundation dedicated to serving the students, staff, and community of the Cherry Creek School District.

Thanks to the Mitch Hanson Memorial Scholarship, named in memory of a beloved Smoky Hill High School teacher, Cherry Creek Schools students who had Hanson as an educator have been able to honor his legacy.

  • "Thank you so much for funding Peak Academies! You are providing EVERY student in our building the opportunity to have experiences they may not otherwise have. On behalf of the staff and the students at Red Hawk Ridge, THANK YOU!"
    *Peak Academies offers these courses rooted in a hands-on, inquiry-based approach to learning to all students at Red Hawk Ridge Elementary School.*
