I have had the best experience at Leona Cox. I have twin boys that are going into 2nd grade and they have had the best education ever. The principal truly cares about the school, students and the parents and making Leona Cox a community school. I have brought several issues to the principal and teachers and they have all handled them extremely well. If something needs to be looked at, the principal makes sure the staff is trained and knows exactly what to do. They have a zero tolerance for bullying and stick to what they believe. I recently moved to a new house where i was assigned to a Saugus School district school, but chose to keep my kids at Leona Cox. I would recommend this school to anyone.
My school is wonderful. It starts with the office staff, administration, teachers and parents. We are well informed and safety is number one. My kids have been there for over 5 years and love the teachers and their dedication.
My son will be entering the 1st grade at Leona Cox Elementary this year. Last year, we were new to the area and my son was starting kindergarten. He loved his teacher and his school. Even though it is a public school, Leona Cox has a private feel. The small and warm campus is full of friendly, caring teachers and staff. We love our school!
We love our school! Our daughter enrolled there last year as a Kindergarten student and had the most amazing teacher! She loved going to school every day. We are so pleased with the Excel reading program, the highly qualified teaching staff, and the caring support staff. We are proud to be a Cougar family!
Leona Cox has a caring and knowledgable teaching staff and administration. Our child has just completed kindergarten and is all ready for first grade. We are so fortunate to have Leona Cox as our home school, and my wife and I are getting even more involved in school programs and PTA activities this year!
Mrs. Elder is awesome! I volunteer in her first grade class that my son goes to and she is creative and keeps the kids engaged. Her classroom is well-controlled, and she is on the PTA, and comes up with such fun activities for the school.
I learned so much from this school and not only that but the teachers support and help you with everything. Thanks!
The Teachers, Principal, office staff. are all awesome. They all really care about your kids here. I could have never asked for a better school.
Leona Cox is a great school! The best thing I ever did for my son was remove him from his old school and enroll him here. The staff is amazing. Look around, they are happy. It says a lot of the Principle. She is really great and shows concern. I am excited to know our other son will attend a this great school in a few years as well.
I have both my children attending Leona Cox school since last year. In my experience, the school principle is very rude and uptight.. But other than that, the teachers are absolutely wonderful. The school lunches seem to be a bit expensive when compared to other schools.
Leona Cox is a great school, a great community. Mrs. Smith the princple really brought the school together. She will be missed. A new year to come! My children are very excited!!
I really like Leona Cox School. Both of my children love going to school. The teacher and staff are great. The principle Mrs. Smith is the best thing that has happen to this school. She is for the children and would do anything to help out anybody. My kids love her and think she is the best. All the teachers are friendly and the office ladys, Mrs. Brake and Mrs. Cowhick are the nicest lady's and have a smile on there face. My kids get involve in a lot of things at school that go on. They love doing the valet program, they really think that Mrs. Stanley is the coolest lady there. She runs the program and is very nice to all the kids that work for her and she always has a smile on her face every morning. They love doing the talent show.
Wonderful staff and teachers! Very active PTA and involved parents. My daughter enjoys going to school. There are many events which families can attend and participate. My daughter speaks fondly of school to others in our family some of whose children attend private schools on the east coast...including the famed 'Sidwell School' ! Many of my family there(east coast) cant believe Cox is a public school that offers lots of support, activities and involved teachers similar to the quality they PAY for!
Leona Cox is a great school. Mrs. Banda did an excellent job. (we will miss her) My two boys a are very happy and proud of their school and teachers
Child number 3 of 3 is attending now. Exceptional teachers and a small student body combined with an active PTA and parents is what makes this school tops in my book. The staff is great, even though the Principal has some tough shoes to fill, she does a great job.
My fourth grader has had five excellent teachers in a row. He is in the band, and has a great percussion teacher. Great activities, nice school spirit. We are very happy. Love Mrs. Banda too.
My 8 yr old 2nd grader loves her school and teacher, Ms. Ayer. Ms. Ayer is young and energetic, and I am impressed with the montly 'projects' that she assigns. I truly feel that my daughter is learning a lot more at this school than at her previous, a private school. I was worried about her adjusting to her new school in the middle of the year, but the whole staff has been very friendly and supportive. The principal, Mrs. Banda, showed me the campus on our first day. Any complaint that is brought up is looked into and there's a weekly newsletter that goes out to the parents with any updates. So far, we are very happy with this school environment.
The Principle and teachers are very helpful and friendly. Every morning I receive a big welcome. smilling faces walk into Leona Cox school
I have had children in this school for 12 years and seen 4 principals pass through our wonderful school. I miss the loving and kind leadership of Marion Hamor most of all. Marion you are missed. The current principal leaves a lot to be desired. Just common curtesies like smiling and saying hello would be a start. Our lovely VP Mrs. Brower is so awesome. My experiences with her are always positive. She really understands how a school should be run.
The assistant principal and office staff are excellent. The new principal leaves a lot to be desired. Way too uptight and rude. Definitely no open door policy like Marianne Hamor had. We miss her. The teachers are superb. I have never had a complaint about any of my children's teachers.
