The Cheney School District has 5 elementary schools (Betz, Salnave, Snowdon, Sunset and Windsor), 2 middle schools (Cheney and Westwood), 1 high school (Cheney), 1 alternative high school (Three Springs) and 1 parent partnership home school program (Home Works).
Take Action and Link Kids to Healthy Choices Coalition (TALK 2 Healthy Choices) was established in January of 2019 with service to families in Cheney and Airway Heights to bring positive change and to create a protective network of prevention services for youth and families. Strategies selected by the coalition to combat risks within the community include parent education sessions and information nights, youth education such as Project Success, Positive Social Norms campaigning, and drug take back events. The coalition has an active youth coalition at Cheney High school, High school Health Helpers (H^3), that work to promote and educate their peers and community on living positive healthy lifestyles. As well as coalition members who are actively involved in meetings, events and decision making to help represent the 12 sectors of our community, such as – local school districts, youth leadership, parents, local government, health care, youth serving organizations, faith-based organizations, other substance abuse serving organizations and law enforcement.
