I am an Alma Mater of Cooper, but I went there in the 60's. California's standards and Vallejo California have changed drastically since then, unfortunately. Long live Mr. Changus.

This is my sons 2nd year at Cooper Elementary School. On his K year he did not have any problem. His teacher was Ms. Bridwell and she is the best teacher a child can have. If I can only have my son stay in her classroom I will but he needed to step up to higher grade and plus Ms, Bridwell was assigned as a 2nd grade teacher. Now that my son is on the 1st grade, he encountered a lot for a 6 year old child. As a young age he already encountered to bully and nothing is being done about it. As a parent, would you like for your child to have a nightmare and wakes up 3x every night. This nightmare had been going on for almost 2 1/2 mos. Have I known it until I volunteer one day and saw the kid that was bullying my child threw a pencil at his face right in front of me. I have spoken to the staff and principal but nothing was done, I don't think I can ignore this. I don't know if I will send my son to the same school where he can not be protected. They have a sign in the school that says stop bullying but I think they are not paying attention to it. Cooper Elementary School don't have action and how to protect this kids from bullies.

My kids have been to this school since kindergarten,(2000) I have to say that the academic level for this elementary school was outstanding, unfortunately this has decrease in the last couple of years..maybe due to the state cuts in education. But I need to say that this school needs more parent involvement and participation. Its been proved that when the parents are involve in their kids education, such as volunteering at the school, the kids are more likely to succeed., and this also help the school community to achieve more goals for the school, with the participation of parents the school voice get louder at the district level to get the needs met for the students , teachers and the school. proud parent.

My son is now 20 years and was a product of Cooper Elementary. My daughter is 6-year-old and in the 1st Grade at Cooper. It continues to be a great group of teachers that have always pulled together with teamwork. This is so necessary, especially during these times of financial difficulty! Great teamwork!

This is my son's first year with Cooper. He's a kindergarten student in Ms. Grasso's class. So far I'm very pleased w/ Cooper, he's learned alot and is even being challanged in areas he has already mastered at kindergarten level. Most of the teachers are very patient and outgoing with the students. Though he is not yet in the After-school program- I think it an excellent program and they have lots of interaction w/ the children. Proud parent-Mrs. Marshall

My kids have been to this school since kindergarten & we haven't had any problems. The only thing that the school need is more support with the parents. I have helped my children's teachers throughout their school years and noticed that many children needed their parent's support. The school also needs more support for special needed students (i.e. speech, English as a second language, math, etc.). I believe that the new principal is doing the best she can for her school & is doing a good job. The school district just needs to straighten themselves out so our children can have a better future!

My child has attended this school since the kindergarten. I personal do not care from for school and some of the staff. I love my daughter teacher this year and she has helped a lot. I think this school has a few good apples in the whole bunch. I also believe that more parents should be involved in fixing the schools problems and not just blaming the school.

Cooper is not a very good elementary school. Cooper also has way too many kids per class.

The school staff and yard duties treat the kids like they're criminals from the day they walk into kindergarten. No wonder we have problems with youth violence in Vallejo by the time the kids are big. There is zero role modeling of respectful interpersonal interactions on campus. I demand better for my kids and we left this school.

I personally do not like this school and I am seriously considering taking my child out of cooper before she starts the 5th grade. Her teacher has a very heavy accent, in which my daughter has a difficult time absorbing the knowledge necessary to do her assignments. The teacher has no control of the students. When frustrated, the teacher calls the parents, not to inform them of discipilary issues, but more so to try and get the chidren in trouble with their parents, which is unacceptable.

My son has been at this school for three years and I have had nothing but support from his past and present teachers. They always make time for me if I need to discuss anything with regards to my sons education. I like this school and will keep my son here until the end of his elementary years. I can't believe that there are some disappointed parents.

I am pulling my child out of this school this year she came into the school with very high self esteem and has left it shattered. The children are not well supervised and often play malicious tricks on those who are smaller than them the teacher has given my child nothing in the way of academics. I have never seen a school as bad as this school.

I don't feel safe sending my kids to this school! My son's 3rd grade teacher is a dream however, but the rest leave a lot to be desired! This summer we plan on moving out of this State completely, just so my kids can have a better education and feel safe. The people at the school did not cooperate when we have had problems in the past.
