Cherry Hills Christian School (CHC) in Highlands Ranch has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2014–2016 for its one-to-one implementation of iPads for students in first through eighth grades.

The Apple Distinguished School designation is reserved for programs that meet criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, and that demonstrate a clear vision of exemplary learning environments.

“Recognition as an Apple Distinguished School is an outside confirmation of the quality of our technology in the classroom,” said CHC Superintendent and Castle Pines resident Robert Bignell.  “In some ways, it is similar to the dual accreditation we earned from AdvancEd and ACSI for overall educational excellence.  These are just two of the many indicators that show the terrific job our teachers and staff are doing to prepare our students morally and academically for the next step in their lives.”

Teachers at CHC embrace the iPad as a powerful tool to actively engage students, who can explore their interests and take creative steps to complete projects and assignments while learning to be discerning consumers of information, growing in independence and responsibility.  Teachers are using technology to provide differentiated opportunities to meet personal learning needs.
