Your friends at the Tom Gross Team are specialists for the Cherry Creek School District. The school district, officially known as Cherry Creek 5, is consistently a top rated school district both in Colorado and nationally.

Tom Gross, Lori Gross and Britt Armstrong of the Tom Gross Team have all completed the intensive nine month Cherry Creek Leadership program. This exclusive program gives a small group of community leaders the opportunity to learn about all facets of the school district over a full school year. In addition, Tom Gross serves on the Cherry Creek School District Long Range Facility Planning Committee as a district representative to provide input into long range planning recommendations.
Tom and Lori Gross have two children and have been involved as parents and active volunteers in Cherry Creek Schools for over 15 years. Their youngest is currently in Grandview High School. Britt Armstrong is a graduate of Cherry Creek School.
Selecting a public school district and specific schools is a critical decision for many home buyers. In the Cherry Creek School District principals are given considerable autonomy to lead their schools. We recommend that parents visit schools of interest. National rating systems are certainly useful but often do not accurately reflect the culture and unique attributes of a school. The Tom Gross Team will be happy to assist you in scheduling school visits or to arrange an appointment for a parent to meet with a district representative. A district level meeting is particularly useful in evaluating special needs situations.
The Cherry Creek Schools offers a broad variety of programs including college level AP courses in all high schools, the International Baccalaureate curriculum at Cherokee Trail and Smoky Hill High Schools , and career and technical education including an automotive program and Smoky Hill High School, aviation, computer science, photography, fashion, hospitality, and more!
