Our school celebrates students of all ages and encourages entire families to pursue their educational dreams. Cherokee’s atmosphere is friendly and supportive, with monthly spirit and celebration days that honor our students’ hard work. International flair makes Cherokee a great place to learn, too. The communications field is a special focus for our school: we have a fully-equipped television studio where students produce a live newscast. Tutoring options and after-school programs all 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.
