    The teachers and staff are doing an excellent job. Not only are the kids learning but they LIKE school!

  • (6 years ago)

    I have 3 kids that attend Cherokee and I personally think that it is one of the best schools in the district. The teachers are very caring and seem to be genuinally concerned about the children in the school. They don't hesitate to call you when there is a problem or if they just want to speak to you about your child and everyone is always greeted with a smile.
