I haven't attended any schools in our area, but as I check them out every so often to see if maybe. But there is no great info. the main page is lacking w/information, pictures and something thet may want me to stop and be interested. So, then I send my kids way out of my own area.

Cochran Middle School is a school for everyone...we have students who are English learners, gifted, special needs. For this reason we have the School for Advanced Studies, the AVID Program, English Learner programs, and Special Education Programs. We have a great staff that supports all these programs. We also have a great after school program as well. I woulk like to see bulletin boards with student work displayed and more mentors and volunteers asissting with tutoring students both before and after school.

Cochran Middle School has seen continuous improvement during the last ten years. A dedicated and hardworking faculty and staff continually ensure that students and families have excellent options for rigorous learning and achievement. The school is not perfect by any means, but consistent annual growth makes this a school to watch!

well i believe this school has taught me so much... it taught me that the school does not make the student, its the student that makes and tries to be the best. This school may not be the best but it will teach you well

Hey I'm a student at this school and i rate it a 8 because this school has taught me so much. Most student are bad here but they can be smart, it's just that they are lazy. Johnnie L. Cochran may not be the best but you can find the best of friends and teachers.

I have a son in the 5th grade and debated if I wanted him to attend this school. I went out of my way to have an open relationship with his teachers and they know that I am more than willing to participate in the needs of my child. I am proud to say he is on the honor roll and doing great. Ms/ Jelloule, Ms. Vawter, and Mr. Williams made the first year of Middle School a great experience for my son. Thanks so Much!!

Prinicpal keeps the school running efficiently but not enough is focused on children'd behavior or curriculum.

I go to this school , and it is not that bad if you want to do good and want to succeed. But the only reason why some of the reviews say 'the teachers dont care any more' is beacause us students loose respect . Please do not put the blame on the teachers. Even though some care and some think that they are better than us.

The teachers are not so bad. I found them helpful and concerned about my child. The kids on the other hand... Ms. Lender, the dean, is wonderful and does her best to do her job with what she has to work with. Over all, I would say the school is about average compared to the surrounding schools in the area.
