We transferred from another county mid-year and I noticed a positive change in my child. She is happy here. It is safe a and clean. The adjacent park and playgrounds are lovely. Administration is responsive. Bullying is not tolerated.

Horrible experience from this school!! The teachers are great but principal and vice principal are horrid!! They are all about the dollar and have no regards for a child's health or well being. Very disappointed in the harassment and bullying from office personnel.

BEST school in Vacaville!! Even trumps Travis USD schools. The principal is so nice and accommodating. I love the teachers there. So warm and welcoming. They all have a passion for teaching students. All teachers are so awesome. Academics are top notch!! My son is very advanced due to going to this school, loves math, english, science and history. Highest API in the district and very safe school. My son loves going to school here and we are so happy at Cooper. We even had an IEP and it was respected and followed by all his teachers. No bullying and all kids are nice and friendly. Go Cooper Comets!

My daughter was in a private school in Vacaville for the K and 1st grades. After some research I decided to put her in Cooper. WOW. First to find out she was grossly behind was disheartening, considering we were paying for her education prior. SInce she started Cooper in the 2nd grade she has been pushed and challenged academically. Now in the 4th grade she is doing amazing! Mrs Bailey is hands down awesome and I could not be more happier to have her in such a distinguished school, where teachers CARE and parents UNITE. Don't look any further from Cooper, they are the #1 elementary for a good reason!

When we purchased our new home in Vacaville, school district was important to us, but we had no idea how wonderful such a large public school could be. We moved from the other side of the country, where our kids went to a small Montessori school (fabulous one BTW!!!) so moving to such a huge public school made us a little nervous. 3 of our 4 kids go to Cooper and I can not say enough positive about the administration, office staff, and of course, the teachers. Our children are in Kindergarten, 2nd and 4th grade, (and year after next our 4th will start kindy) and they all LOVE school, and we really feel they are getting an amazing education. Every teacher we have had contact with has been spectacular. I need to make special mention of my son's teacher, Mrs. Pam Wilcox. I have never seen a kindergarten teacher so totally interested in each individual child, and with such unwaivering enthusiasm. She makes the kids EXCITED to learn. My son comes home happy EVERY single day, and cries when he has to miss school because he loves Mrs. Wilcox class so very much. Thank you to the entire staff at Cooper for making this transition for our kids such a positive experience!

The second grade teachers were great, the principle is great, but having a hard time finding a third grade teacher that cares. My son who is in room 26 keeps having issues. Hoping next year will be better. Everyone from the crossing guards to the parents are friendly! Over all Cooper is a good school.

Cooper school is a true example of community. Teachers, Parents, Volunteers, Staff, and kids all working together. It's a wonderful place to learn and grow.

Due to the huge budget cut the school is doing everything possible to raise money and has been successful in ensuring that the classrooms are equipped with the necessary tools to allow the children to effectively learn by not cutting back on any resources for the classrooms themselves.

My step son just moved out here to California to live with us and we had to find the best school for him to attend. Without a doubt I picked Cooper Elementary School, I did a little research and this school has the best test results in our area! I am so glad I choose Cooper, it has been the most pleasant experience already!!

They really do not leave any child behind, They have taken my child under their wings and helped her thrive, she was having a hard time of it, And the teachers and adminstrators made sure that she will succeed, and never made her feel like she is dumb. We love Cooper School home of the Comets. This is our last year at cooper, and Cooper school has given our daughter the proper tools that she will need to succeed in Middle School next year.

Cooper has the greatest kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Wilcox. She is so friendly and upbeat. She uses the best positive reinforcement with the children. Mr. Tietze is also a great 6th grade teacher. My two daughters graduated from Cooper 4 years ago and had wonderful experiences there. Parents are very involved with the school. Mr. Robertson makes sure the school has what it needs so that the students don't suffer.

Our teachers are simply the best teachers PERIOD. Each one continues to show a love for educating our future. It is also encouraging to be involved with a school where a great majority of the parents take an interest in all school activities. We are truly blessed!

Academic are strictly enforced at Cooper. Music, Sports and other extracurricular activities could be better. However, I know that they are working on it. An art class was just introduced this semester. Level of parent involvement...hummm, this will be my second year at cooper and the first year was not that great as far as parent involvement. However, this year seem to be much better.

My daughter has been attending Cooper Elementary for the past 4 years. It is a very clean and well organized campus - both in academics and the arts. My daughter has had excellent teachers who were very caring and qualified. She has had experience in different sciences, been exposed to cultural and religious differences and lives. She has been exposed to performing arts, the GATE program, and band (for the past 2 years). I strongly feel that Cooper Elementary has exceeded my expectations.

2004- This school has promoted the vice principal to the principal position. The PTA president and treasurer is also new and is terrific! So far this year looks to have a lot of involvement from the parents. The PTA has some wonderful programs planned. However, due to budget constraints many programs have been cut. The speech therapist also has a high turnover rate. The PTA looks to be succesfully trying to reinstate a few of the extra curricular programs. The teacher quality varies widely.. I have had some excellent teachers and other that were dissappointing. Overall, I do believe Cooper School is a wonderful school in a great area.

I went to Cooper fourth through 6th grade and loved it. The teachers were very good, I learned quite a lot in a year. They also have great activities such as performing arts and band for 5th and 6th graders(both of which I participated) along with many others. The school grounds are nice and it doesn't start too early or late. The kids are nice too. It used to be a year round school with four tracks and now has just one track but the times are very suitable and I found the year round schedule to be quite enjoyable, although I did not think it would be. My younger sister also went there and had the same enthusiasm for it. Cooper is a wonderful school.
