Dakota Henn- Class of 2017 Graduate
I started my high school career at Cheyenne Mountain. I was so excited I was finally in high school. I met a lot of great people. I started freshman year doing very well with keeping my grades up. I was trying my hardest to impress my parents and stay eligible for sports. I finished the year with no grades lower than a C; I was so proud of myself. On to sophomore year, this is where things started to go wrong. I started off okay and then I started not to do my homework and my grades started to go down a lot. I was only eligible for 6 games of hockey season and I was not able to play any of the baseball season…. Read more HERE
Megan Crook- Class of 2017 Graduate
I want to start by saying, high school is never easy. The maturity that grows within a person in these four years, comes from monumental experiences. Everyone has different things to deal with during high school. Whatever it may be, we had to overcome it. But we did it. Being able to walk across the stage, shake the hands of the people who made the difference for us and having a high school diploma in your hands. As long as I can remember getting my diploma would never be a second thought. That was my attitude until I actually got to high school. As Mr. Mike Perez famously says “no one graduates high school on their own.” *Read more here
*Pablo Wilkins- CPS Senior*
Hello, my name is Pablo Wilkins. For all my time in school, I would have to say the school I’ve enjoyed the most is definitely this school. Here at Community Prep the teachers care and motivate more than anywhere I’ve seen so far. They will still push you to try harder when you’re down, they know when you’re not giving 100% and sometimes that’s okay but other times it’s not and they will push you back to full drive. *Read more here

Logan Found Success
Logan Mountain graduated from Community Prep School in October of 2013. He says that he had been unsuccessful at his previous high school because he had to work on required curriculum at an ‘average pace of the classroom’ that did not work for him and his style of learning.
At CPS, Logan found that he could work at his own pace and that the teachers are flexible enough to have allowed him to pursue further study and exploration into topics of his choice. Logan says that because he was allowed to work at his own pace, he is graduating sooner than he would have otherwise at his previous high school.
Liz Found Caring Staff
Liz Benton says that CPS is a “really great place” because “the teachers actually care about you here. They care what happens to us and about what we plan to do with our lives.” She says that since she’s come to CPS, the school has helped her to “wanna be somebody instead of wanting to drop out of school and be a nobody.”
Liz says it was specifically the Outward Bound component of the CPS Expeditionary/Outdoor Education program that made a significant impact on her and her decision to change her life for the better, get herself on track again with her education, and get motivated to graduate.
