Cooper City Elementary School1

My children started going to school about two weeks ago, now the first week I did feel very well about placing my children in this school because my sons interest took an interest to my son and I was very pleased to see that she was very communicative with me overall I have to say the TEACHER is amazing, however the following week came along and I was trying to reach out to the school in the effort to try to provide my kids a Friday school shirt so they would not feel left out I never received a call back and I went that Friday to vent my frustrations to the front office about the situation now the ladies response at the front desk was "are you sure you called the school?" Because we would have told you what was the procedure into getting a shirt and then followed with a snippy attitude referring to a blue page in the back of registration form and stated that it was in the registration packet.
Organic lunches at this school are delivered by Tiny Meals. This is a great school and they accept organic school lunches made by Tiny-Meals.com. Cooper City Elementary is a small school with 790 students and a caring staff.
Coming from another country I have to say Cooper City Elementary is very good! sometimes parent-teacher communication is non- existent but I think that is a norm in a US public school. Not knowing exactly what to expect this, our first year, was difficult. Sometimes we did not acknowledge that parents can join children to certain activities and found no one to tell us in advance that parents were allowed, we know is difficult but coming from a private out of the US school, it was easier to communicate with teachers even in higher grades, but overall the school is very good. Thank you
My 5 children went to Cooper City elementary in the 80s and 90s and now my grandchildren attend there. They definitely cater to the smarter children, while those who need a little extra help or time to understand certain subjects, get left behind. The ESE program needs improvement and some of the teachers do little to help instill confidence in those children who need it most. I understand that budget cuts may be blamed for some of the problems, but teachers and staff should try concentrating more on the shy, quiet kids who need a little extra help. The smart kids will always do well.
My daughter has been at the school for 5 years. She is in 4th grade moving to 5th. We love the school and the staff. All of her teachers have been great and easy to communicate with. This year she had a new teacher to the school, Miss Rodgers. She is excellent. My daughter really likes her and she was fast to answer any of my concerns. The office staff is very helpful. We have used the aftercare for the past 4 years and my daughter is very happy there. Often times telling me to come later to pick her up.
I am very disapointed with this school, most of the staff are rude and careless. My dauther has been bullied by the "popular girls" and after repeated visits with the teacher nothing has been done. it is obvious that the teacher is indiferent to my daughter and the girls sence this, so they try to hurt her as much as they can by taking her stuff and they know they won't be reprehended. They said nothing can be done which is okay, but at least they should fake that a conversation will take place prohibiting this kind of behavior but they didn't even bother. I was screamed at because my daughter had a phone that she was't supposed to have. Instead of them maybe pretending to care or work something out? But again, that would be too much to ask from the faculty at this school.
My son has been a student of Cooper City Elementary for 5 years (he is currently in 4th grade; has been attending since Kindergarten). One of the reasons we moved to Cooper CIty was for the schools in the town. Let me just say that we could not have asked for a better school for our son. The Teachers and staff go above and beyond for the welfare of our son. Any child would be lucky to attend this school.
