Cherry Creek Schools named to Forbes America’s Best Employers list for second time

Forbes business magazine has named the Cherry Creek School District one of America’s Best Large Employers for the second consecutive year.

“We continue to work hard to make our district a great place to work,” Cherry Creek School District Superintendent Harry Bull said. “We have among the lowest turnover rate for teachers in the Denver Metro Area, all of whom are supported by a dedicated classified staff that ensures that we create the best possible environment for teaching and learning.”

Cherry Creek Schools was one of seven organizations, and the only school district, in Colorado to make the list. Of the seven, the district was highest ranking once again.

Nationwide, the district moved up to #92, from #143 last year. Cherry Creek Schools is one of just three public school districts in the country to make the list.

  • Atmosphere at work and potential for development
  • Working conditions
  • Salary / Wage
  • Workplace
  • Diversity

The survey, conducted by Statista in collaboration with Forbes, analyzed employer attractiveness from the perspective of American employees. Employees of 1,100 organizations were included in the survey.
