My son will be attending a virtual public school at home next year. Some teachers were fine, some were not. One in particular would lecture the kids on racism against Hispanics instead of teaching the days lessons, and another that would lecture them on her personal religion instead of teaching history. Are these teachers not trained at all? He had 3 teachers that would put another kids grades in for his grades screwing up his grades. My son told me several times of a boy in his favorite math class that would constantly talk back to the teacher. Finally my son whipped around and told him to shut up and learn some respect. Good for him, but heshouldn't have to ever do that. The kid was never sent to the office. The school was a good idea in theory but needs a lot of work.

I actually go to this school. Its better than most others up here in the high desert. Our Decathlon team even beat University prep. What other school do you see with PTLW (project lead the way)? I'm in an engineering class everyday, and I got to choose what type of engineering to study. I don't have problems with my teachers and they have the after school program or tutoring for kids who need the extra help. Our principal is awesome and involved with whatever we do. We have a college and career center and we can go in there whenever we have time or make appointments to learn more about our future. We have a library with all kinds of books, and 3 computer labs. If a student can't keep up with the work there's help available everywhere they just need to ASK. Yes, we have uniforms but it's not so bad once you get used to it. Fridays are spirit days and we can wear school related shirts that aren't uniform, and we have jean days. I honestly think this is the best school up here in the high desert, but that's just my opinion.

I FEEL THAT THIS SCHOOL IS NOT AS GOOD AS THEY TRY T O MAKE IT SOUND OR LOOK, MOST LIKELY IF YOUR KID GETS STUCK WILL STAY STUCK .THE SCHOOL JUST TRY TO DO WHAT THEY CAN TO COVER THEIR BACKS, BUT WILL NOT DO MUCH FOR YOUR CHILD (LIKE TRY TO FIND A PLAN FOR THEM ETC) MY SON WAS STUGGLING ON SOME OF HES CLASSES (WELL BEHAVED)NO ONE SAID ANYTHING TO ME UNTILL I CALLED IN A MEETING TO SEE WHAT COULD WE DO AND OUT OF 7 TEACHERS 2 ATTEDED THE MEETING AND THE THE SCHOOL COUNELOR JUST SAID IF MAYBE I SHOULD JUST HIM TO ONE OF THE LOCAL MIDDLE SCHOOLS ...... MY SON NEVER GOT IN TROUBLE FOR ANYTHING ....BUT YET THIS SCHOOL RATHER KEEP KIDS THAT FIGHT ALL THE TIME AND HAVE NO RESPECT FOR ANY ONE INSTEAD OF TRYING TO HELP SOME ONE ACADEMICALLY. ALOT OF PEOPLE THINK THIS IS A GOOD SCHOOL CUSE OF THE UNIFORMS AND LOCATION BUT IS NOT I WOULD RATHER HAVE MY KID IN HOME SCHOOL THAN JUST SEE HIM FAIL AT THIS SCHOOL!!

I think that there is a lot of hype. It is great to offer a variety of modern classes but the staff should be specifically trained to teach the classes. I think they have misrepresented what actually takes place at this school.

I say its a great school great teachers but one thing about the school that i don't like are the students no disipline and no respect for the smart kids teachers don't send the kids to the office when disrespectful to the teachers. Students who have f's are the kids with bad disipline and respect they cheat off other kids who have good grades and students with f's and bad respect go to the fun programs but not the respectful and smart students. I wish they can just kick them out. I'm a A and B student and every thing they ask me are my answers for the test and homework and I just get annoyed by them every single day since the first day of school. Students who just go to tutoring are just playing and fooling around with there friends and the kids who are really working are distracted by them and the teachers get mad and they send the students to the office or to go home and not to come back if there are fooling around. Don't send a bad student even they are respectful at home but at school there bad dis respectful and have BAD GRADES. this is a school of choice not a school for bad and good students.

Cobalt, love this school. they have really good teachers.Except Mrs Domingez.. If she would stick to the lectures & not her religion, the kids in her class could excel.. so far im happy with this school. just get a better history teacher. thanks to all the teacher & staff for everything you do.

So far Cobalt is an okay school, this is the first year for its Math and Science Institute, so I really can't judge yet. But, I will say give them a chance before you judge, and if you feel they are a bad school then take your child out and put them somewhere else (Mesa Linda or Hook). You know where kids bring guns/knives and drugs to school. No one is perfect and every teacher style is different, we just have to teach our children to adjust just like in the real world.

The teachers experience and teaching methods are mediocre at best, especially Ms. Garcia. She is one of the worst ones there and lacks the experience to effectively work with ELL students and often offended and defensive if a parent tries to provide critisizm. If you want to improve the school, hire better teachers!

Cobalt is the greatest school there is. I attended ther in 2007-2008 year and it was the best years ever. The staff is wonderful and very supported. They help you through everything. If I could go back I would. Their school activities and classes are great to. Without Cobalt i don't think I would have made it through my 8th grade year. Now I am a 10th grader attending Oak Hills high and all thanks to Cobalt I am taking 11th grade classes. Thanks CMS GO Cougars

Cobalt is an okay school. It's pretty poor, lame, and the food is terrible, but most of teachers are really good at their job. The sports program is good too.
