I saw a huge difference in the kids once we opened the new school. They LOVED their school and they were proud of it. I felt like they were more engaged and that we had a vastly more collaborative learning model because we had so much collaborative space. Kids also love to hang out there and do their work, even after school. Sky Vista was warm and inviting and kids can feel that.

The Cheyenne Mountain community is often described as more like a “small town” rather than a suburban neighborhood in a much larger city because of its history, tradition, and sense of community. The Cheyenne Mountain School District is at the core of this culture, so our schools are important not only to the students, parents, and staff who are directly impacted, but also to all community members. The schools designed by CRP Architects have resulted in buildings that only enhance this pride. The only downside is that our community now can’t wait for the “next” CRP project to replace our remaining original buildings.

Creating a building to be a home for the countless firefighters that will inhabit its walls for 24 hours a day, providing them comfort and meeting all of their needs to ensure the safety of the citizens can be a challenging endeavor at best. CRP skillfully embraced the arduous task of designing and overseeing the relocation of Fountain Fire Station #1 without hesitation, and intuitively added character, details, and personal touches, that were not specifically requested, but much needed.

Soda Creek is just as much a part of our community as it is our education system. We host the City’s After School Program each day and a School Days Off Program through the City when we don’t have school. Our building also gets used for various purposes outside of school programs, for example, Girl Scouts, Wyld Life (Middle School program of Young Life), Parenting Series through our early childhood advisory council, indoor soccer, and many others.
— Michele Miller, Principal

I believe that Cimarron Middle School, along with all of our schools in the community, are a hub for students, parents and community members to participate in growing our youth and socializing.
