Eaglecrest has been excellent for my daughter. The academics are rigorous but the teachers are supportive and committed to student success. The school is large and the student body is diverse, so there is a wide variety of clubs, community activities, arts and athletics to keep students engaged. My daughter has enjoyed everything from softball to robotics. She always feels safe and has never been bullied. She has flourished at Eaglecrest and is leaving with the confidence and skills she needs excel in college.

I graduated from Eaglecrest in 2018, and I would recommend it to anyone. My teachers genuinely cared about me are made themselves available for any questions I had. I originally hated math and planned to drop it at the earliest opportunity, but thanks to some fantastic, passionate teachers, I stuck with it and ended up getting 4s and 5s on my calculus AB and my AP statistics exams. I always loved social studies. My teachers at Eaglecrest encouraged me to pursue my passion both in the classroom and outside of it through Model UN. I entered Eaglecrest with very little confidence and left knowing that I had the skills to succeed anywhere, which I am now doing at CU Boulder. I made lifelong friends, tried everything from french to football, experienced different cultures and even traveled to France. Eaglecrest is a diverse and inclusive school that prepares its students effectively for life.

Terrible school. Way worse than any other schools in ccsd. If you live near the school I recommend that you have them go to grandview or cherokee trail.

Eaglecrest is an amazing school; really a "best kept secret". Their academic programs are strong and they have something for every level of student, from their Honors Diploma to SciTech program. And they're about creating well-round students; I love their music and arts...it's fun to go to the musical. It's a great school overall!

Eaglecrest High School is such an amazing school. They offer so many Ap classes there and the teachers want you to strive. They are very good at keeping CSAPS High. They have something called "Sci-Tech" which are for kids that are interested in becoming engineers someday or other fields. So many kids tend to work for Lockheed-Martin, Raytheon and many well successful jobs. Music is amazing, my daughters were in band and they had a blast. Art department is sooo amazing also, If you're interested in art eaglecrest is a good place for you. Sports have a HUGE variety to choose from. There Volleyball was 2006 State Champions compiling an 81-6 record in the past 3 years. Our Softball team won State championship in 2005. They do their best to push our kids to becoming state champions, but most importantly believing in ourselves. There are so many clubs to join like Dodgeball Club, Key Club, and so many others. There will be something your kids will like. My daughters were in 6-7 clubs each during the year and it was just an amazing blast for them. Eaglecrest has Pep Assemblys for Fall, Winter, Spring in which they award many athletes and students that do well in classes. They give them medals and they have a blast doing it. They have a huge school with lots of rooms for "labs" for kids in need, lecture centers, 700-seat theater and alot more other stuff. Parents involve so much at Eaglecrest, thats how the students do so well. Parents care a lot for their students.
