Large class sizes, but that's par fot he course with DPS. Some teachers are good, others not so much. It's a crap shoot. Would reccomend keeping a close eye on every step of your kids education at this school.
There's a lot of good parent involvement. But it's still DPS, so you can expect large class sizes and spotty teacher performance. One of my boys excelled here, but the other slipped through the cracks with reading and I'm pretty sure the teacher was more concerned about her upcoming retirement to care.
I have had two children complete Cory with two different principals. I couldn't recommend Cory any more highly. The teachers, principals and staff are all extremely child-oriented and the education they provide is excellent. My daughter has special needs as well as being highly gifted and the school accommodated her very well, allowing her to be very successful. My son graduates from Cory tomorrow night and he is very well prepared to go on to a challenging middle school program.
Cory has great, dedicated teachers and a very active parent body that supports all kids.
We have two kids at Cory and love it. This is one of the best elementary schools in Colorado according to 5280 magazine and we can testify to that. The parental support is unbelievable. The teachers are outstanding. Mrs. Shepherd is a great principal. What a great atmosphere to learn in. Our kids look forward to going to school every day. Wish we could have gone to Cory as a kid.
My daughter has attended Cory since Kindergarten and is now a 5th grader. We have been extremely pleased with every aspect of our experience with the staff. Cory is a magnet school for gifted and talented and the teachers really strive to make sure that all the kids are challenged. We 'choiced' into Cory and are so glad we did!
We loved our experience at Cory the teachers and principle are wonderful caring and really on top of the elementary education game. Parental involvement is incredible and the kids are happy and well educated.
Friendly Staff, great teachers (as in most schools, I think,) and principal Lynn Scates was involved and on top of everything, keeping things running smoothly and effectively. Parent involvement was incredible, often exceeding expectations on fundraising amounts.
