Our school celebrates and encourages entire families to become involved in their children’s education. Exciting reading challenges inspire the whole school and every student to engage in reading and our dedicated staff help support and encourage every student. Cherokee is also proud of its partnership with the Travelers Foundation, which provides art and theatre experiences including African drumming, spoken word, and hip hop dancing. With a fully-equipped television studio, students produce a live newscast twice a week for the whole school. After-school programs extend learning time and help build teamwork and social skills. Students at Cherokee Heights love our indoor pool, with swimming lessons provided by Red Cross certified instructors.
