Cheyenne Mountain High School is located in the shadows of scenic Cheyenne Mountain in the southwest part Colorado Springs, Colorado. Cheyenne Mountain School District is one of only three districts in the Pikes Peak region that has been "Accredited with Distinction" by the Colorado Department of Education.
Recognized nationally for academic excellence, Cheyenne Mountain High School is a Blue Ribbon School as selected by the U.S. Department of Education. This is a prestigious national award received by only a handful of schools in Colorado. Additionally, Cheyenne Mountain High School has been a winner of the John Irwin School of Excellence award every year since the award's inception in 2001.
CMHS also excels in athletics and the fine arts, and has won numerous athletic state championships. Our choral, band, visual art and drama programs are state and nationally recognized, and CMHS is home to the 2011 state champion Science Olympiad team and the 2011 and 2012 state runner-up Science Bowl team.
If you provided any medication to the nurse this year, you may stop in during finals week to pick it up. We are unable to send medications home with your child. All medication must be picked up by Friday, May 24th at noon, or it will be disposed of.
Cheyenne Mountain ran its first live webcast on Tuesday, May 14 for the Academic Awards Ceremony. The response was overwhelming!
Check our our Video Archive page to watch Academic Awards again.
Graduation will be broadcast live on the web, and viewers may watch by pointing their web browser to:
Graduation will go live on Sunday, May 26 at about 12:20 PM and the ceremony starts at 1:30PM. Both streams will run continuously through the entire ceremony. The ceremony should end around 3:00PM.
Family who are out of town or deployed overseas and those who cannot travel to these venues can still tune in. Anyone with an internet connection can watch either of these events live on the web. This service is provided free of charge to the public.
Every attempt will be made to provide a continuous stream with high quality audio and video, but as the high school is still new at providing this access, we may encounter unexpected glitches during the broadcasts. We thank you in advance for your patience.
Dear Parents of Graduating Seniors,
It’s time to gear up for the Senior Breakfast. This is a traditional event for graduating seniors sponsored by the PTO, held after graduation practice at the school. This year the Breakfast will be held on Friday morning, May 24, and will be the very last event for our Seniors on the Cheyenne Mountain High School campus!
We are in the midst of planning and are excited to make this a fun and memorable event for our Seniors. But, we need your help to supplement our budget to purchase food for this fun event. Rather than ask you at this busy time of the year to bake and cook, we are asking you to contribute a suggested $10 (any amount is greatly appreciated) to help purchase food and drinks.
Please send your contributions by April 25 so that we may continue the planning process for the Senior Breakfast. Make checks payable to CMHS PTO and mail to Michelle McLean, 450 Roxbury Circle, Colorado Springs, 80906.
We will also be decorating the cafeteria with our children’s 6th grade school yearbook photos. If your child did not attend a CMSD 12 school, please email a 6th grade photo (jpeg) by May 1 with their name to be included to Michelleamclean@aol.com.
Let’s make this last event a very special and memorable one for our Seniors!
Your Senior Representatives
Michelle McLean, Terri Lux and Lori Dewhirst
