My school is a very great school. We are the only school that jumped 9% in our writting scores. Why, because our principal is amazing. He makes programs that are right for you. He will have after school tutoring. Not only that but we have amazing coaches and teachers, Our soccer team is the second best team in state. Why, again because our principal hires the best coaches and teachers. Also, i have never met a person that cares so much for their student. You can tell how much he loves his kids, he will be in campus to hang out with the studenst to socialize. It is rare to find a principal like him. He is the perfect principal anyone can ask for.
Copper Canyon is a great school thanks to Mr Potts. A principal involved in every aspect of the school. I have seen him attending Aztec games, and competitions after hours, or on weekends, taking time away from his family to support the students, because he cares. He held meetings one Saturday a month "Coffee with Potts", to talk to parents, get to know us, ask questions or rise our concerns. We respectfully ask the District Superintendent and the Board to reconsider their decision and renew Mr. Potts' contract. The students need him. AZTECS ASPIRE, AZTECS ACHIEVE.
My school is and excellent school since Mr.potts is there. We need him at copper we are his family his only kids. Without potts copper will be nothing. We need him there. He bleeds copper!
This school is by the best the one where I would like to graduate. Mr. Potts shaking my hand as I go down the way to get my diploma would be just great. Not renewing his contract wouldn't make this possible.
Im excited to finish this school year all for mr. Potts he motivates me to stay in school.
As I first attended this school was In 2007 that yeas wasn't forgetful or none was it the best time of my high school years, a lot of fights and no one cared for that school at all.. as I was approaching my senior year Mr. Potts became the principal that school felt like a home and somewhere safe to be at, he cared for his students he made us feel like we can succeed and graduate. I attended games and etc events that went on at the school I always seen him through and supported the after school activities. He made copper canyon a better place I could proudly say that my senior was the best. because he bought to the school so much pride and spirit no one was scared to go to school. because he made it feel like home and no one else did.
The school is one of the best best in the west side it has gone from a really bad school in the west side to the best no fights no gangs no drugs nothing but casual school days.
Copper Canyon is one of a kind School, and that is all because of our beloved principal Mr.Potts determination to make our school the best it can be. He Motivates us all to do better, he believes in us. And unlike all other principals, Mr.Potts works hard to keep students in school and not giving up on us and just kicking us out of school. I couldn't have asked for a better principal to run our school, he is like a second dad to all of us who attend Copper Canyon and we won't let him go, not now, not never. I really hope the district reconsiders, they're making a huge mistake. Aztecs aspire, Aztecs achieve !
I am so proud to be a copper canyon student and to have been taught to be a true aztec; courteous, commited, helpful and safe. It has made me more confident and hopeful for moving on in life like getting on the right track for college starting with good grades and a positive attitude. Moreover, I appreciate my teachers and all their hard work they have put in for me and my future but most of all I want to thank Mr. Potts. He has done everything with love and passion and even someone blind can realize this just by feeling his presence. He puts out something special to all copper canyon students that motivates us all for hope and achievement. He has always taught us to be courteous by being generous to others; commited by doing our school work and aspiring for those A's; helpful by helping others on campus, doing food drives and donations for poor people in Az in need and finally; safe by staying in school and joining extra curricular activities to distract us from the temptations. Im glad to say that my high school, where we learn to be a true aztec, is Copper Canyon High School with our dearest principal, Mr. Potts.
My school has been great thanks to Mr. Potts. I as a student feel more safe due to Mr. Potts. It is great that he actually care about how we perform in each classes! He has turned us into courteous, committed, helpful, and safe students!
Great school I have one son that graduated from there and my daughter who currently attends. I know I made a good decision when I enroll them there. Thanks Mr.Potts for the great job you have done with this school
This school deserves nothing but 5stars thanks to who? MR.POTTS he made a huge different to that school! So If I have to fight for hi. I will and I don't care he made a difference in my life and I want to thank him back by helping him and being on his side! We are his children and we will help him! Copper isn't a school with out MR.POTTS!
This school is everything it is today thanks to our principal Mr.Potts. He is the most dedicated principal, in advancing his students, I have ever had and I'm positive many more agree. His preporation and willingness is beyond what I expected in highschool when I first enrolled and copper canyon. With out a doubt Mr.Potts has rearranged the future for his students and with out him, education and leadership with vanish without his voice to lead us in life. His ways of how he enforces and controlls our school is amazing. Does anything, and promises students to make sure we are lead in the right path. He cares about not what he does to keep us tall, but how tall we can get. Best principal ever and best role model to anyone.
This school is fun especially with Mr.Potts he motivates me to be in class and do my work
Copper Canyon is an excellent school, it has improved soo much throughtout the past years. I have attended this school for the last 2 years and have never had any complaints. This school is filled with outstanding teachers who the students can trust and with a marvelous principal, Mr. Potts, who brings life to the school.
I Am Currently A Junior At Copper Canyon, I Have Recently Started In August My First Year At Copper As An Aztec ! I Have Never Felt The Way I Feel About Copper Canyon, It Is Not Just Going To School But It Is My Home. Copper Has Been A School That Anyone Just Feels Comfortable To Be At... I Can Say That I Have Not Seen A Single Fight At School Since I Started. I Just Feel Safe ! Mr. Potts Has Done So Much For Us His Kids (He Calls Us His Kids) He Is A Principle That Transmits Happiness By A Single Smile Or "Goodmorning Aztecs" Everytime He Talks In The Speaker He Sounds So Happy To Gives Us A News. HE has Done The "F" Challenge At Our School Which Is A Challenge He Makes Us Do To Improve Our Grades And It Has Worked Great On Me And Other Students ! What I Want To Say Is That Mr. Potts Has Done A Difference And I Wouldn't Want Him To Leave! I Haven't Cared About A Principle Like I Care About Him Because I Can Tell You That Mr. Potts Loves Us All To Death ! Please RENEW His CONTRACT!!!! #savepotts We Love You Mr. Potts ALWAYS & FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS
The high rating that I'm giving this school is based solely on the fact that it has been continuously improving over the past few years under the watchful eye of a very devoted and kindhearted principal. Without him there, this school wouldn't so much as be on anyone's radar. Tolleson Union High School district is making a huge mistake trying to get rid of this man.
This school has the greatest principal ever. The tolleson district is making a huge mistake letting him go. If they do not renew his contract I am pulling my kids out of the school.
Ever since I first entered Copper Canyon it felt like home. I had a relative who worked there before I was attending and she absolutely hated it. She would come home complaining about the disrespectful students and the dangerous environments. I've been attending Copper since my freshman year and I'm a senior. The year I started my freshman year was the same year Mr.Potts was starting too. I can imagine just as I was afraid of something new, Potts was too. But I was determined to better myself and Potts was determined to better our staff, students and community. Coppers days consisted of constant fighting, uncontrollable behavior and very poor acedemincs but when Potts entered, everything changed. Mr.Potts got rid of most if not all drug gangs, lowered the number of fights to VERY few and created a SAFE and FRIENDLY place for ALL students. He became our "adoptive father", guiding us each step of the way. Potts completely changed Copper for the BETTER. District will NEVER understand the kind of person he is because they are never there, treating him like the students do. We all know that the real reason for letting him go was NOT work related. So district, whats your justification?
I am a former student of this school, and it simply deserves nothing less than five stars. The past few years under the head of their most recent principal have been a complete night to day transformation. The student body is united, test scores have improved, and the school is such a healthy place for students to be. Tolleson Union High School district is making a huge mistake in getting rid of the best thing that has ever happened to the school, and I hope they can come to their senses.
