I really enjoy attending this school. I have been here for 2 years and it's soooo much better than my previous school. I have made several friends and I feel very safe here. The teachers are very nice, and I know the school work is harder but they are preparing me for college!

Your child must have the ability and maturity to learn on his/her own and keep up with the fast-paced workload. I finally will be pulling them next year, going to either private or a charter school. Unfortunately it has declined over the years. There are some major issues that need resolution. It just does not have the ability to provide an education for children anymore. To be honest, I think the school is putting more effort on a fake reputation, then the education and development of the children. My children have said for a long time that when visitors come to inspect what is going on they have to act as if nothing is wrong. With the increase of violence, lack of guidance, ridiculous class sizes (70+ students in the electives, I am not exaggerating!) and a large amount of students failing this school does not get my recommendation anymore. It is sad as they really have a great program for the medical arts. Please do your research, call the school board, ask about the dropout rate or how many students request to go back to their neighborhood schools. You would be shocked. These are not students that are unintelligent, etc. Many go from 4.0 GPAs to failing.

Not exactly the best school ever, although perhaps good compared to some other schools. Some of the teachers are alright, but others either don't teach or don't seem to care. A lot of the better teachers and staff are leaving, though, and DC needs more clubs and the such. Also, to me there is too much focus on "medical" (so that students are watching bloody surgeries in 7th grade) and not enough on other aspects, which is why DC can't ever get past JWJ in competitions. Some of the teachers can be nice, though some of the kids aren't so great. That said, some of the kids and some of the teachers are also good, though DC isn't as good as I wanted it to be. And though it might not be the best school, there's still separation between Gifted and other students, and it has a magnet program, and it's still better than a lot of schools. It may be easier than JWJ for the middle school, though there aren't as many opportunities. There are also fewer sports available, and not as much school spirit as I'd like to see, perhaps because many of the people aren't being satisfied.

As a 9th grader at Darnell Cookman , i believe it's not such a bad school at all. Some people are complaining saying the teachers give too much work , well yeah i agree but do you realize every homework they give us , if you do it right , it's good for you . You succeeding at that school ensures you that you'll have a successful future. Some kids are complaining about how the high the high schoolers ruin the experience but i strongly disagree. If you don't step on their way and just go to your classes on time , then you don't have time for them to be 'bullying' you. Another thing , some complain about the teachers. As of now My teachers are Mr.percy (AP human geo) , he's alright. He gives you notes to take and if you do it right ,you will succeed in his class . The only teacher i don't like is mrs.roche and thats because she doesn't teach anything . She gives you classwork ,you do it ,GOOD !, you have a test next period. Anyways , Darnell cookman Is awesome , i mean , if you want an awesome future , then you'll love it

My child has been at DC for 4 years, she begged to attend high school there since she went through middle school. She regrets it very much. She has begged me to pull her out, but it is impossible at this point because of the magnet application process. I am afraid that she will lose her magnet opportunities. The HS vice principal does not ever listen to the children and he will always take the teacher's side no matter what. The principal is more involved I the middle school than the HS. They should separate the two schools and have two principals. Maybe that way they could put a little effort into the hs. The middle school experience was wonderful, the middle school Vice principal is amazing and the MS counselors are caring and committed. There is too much of a turnover in teachers, and that should tell you something. The best teachers from ms are leaving to go other places. It is unfortunate, but they need to do something to make the kids happier. The work load is too much and the teachers just pile on the homework instead of teaching in class. There needs to be more clubs offered and they need to start having hs sports soon. Do something to make your hs students happy.

I am a student here at Darnell Cookman and have been coming here for 2 years going on 3 and I enjoy it here. The classes are good especially for earning high-school credits in 7th and 8th grade. MOST (not all) of the teachers here care about you and your grade and work as hard as they can to help you pass. However, if you come to Darnell Cookman and slack off by not doing projects and homework you will have a hard time here and will not enjoy your experience very much.

This school is AWESOME and AWE-INSPIRING.....I have attended DC for 5 years and have watched it grow from just a middle school to a middle/high school. Some of my good friends are going to be in the first graduating class this year (2012). This school pushes you to the max and doesn't let you get by doing nothing. Expect a lot of homework and outside of class assignments (sometimes it seems like I am in school for 12 or more hours because of homework) but it pays off when you pass the AP Classes and exams. The teachers are great in both middle school and high school and they really care if you do good or not. I had a choice of this school, Paxon or Stanton and I chose this one and am glad I did because I love each and every day and can't wait for school to start back in a couple weeks.

I have attended Darnell Cookman for the past three years and I've been on the gifted team all three years. I will be returning to Darnell in the fall to kick off my freshman year. The staff is great and the teachers are histerical (Not in a bad way, they're just a pleasure to be around). The eighth-grade Runics team is the by far the most interactive team on campus. Recently, a variety of new clubs have formed in Darnell Cookman, and I am proud to say that the as the president of the Viknig Volunteers, that our service opprotunities we open to the students are beneficial to the community in more than one area and really touch the lives of all who participate. I have a special connection to this school, so I will graduate from this school in 2014.

When i first came here, i thought it was the best school ever! but time has passed & a lot has changed! For one thing, the high school basically took all the middle school freedom! i'm in the 8th grade and i always looked forward to this year so i can act like i'm the head of this school but the high school just messes it up. They take all our dances and we have to share our activities with them which isn't fair. The school is soo boring right now that it doesn't make no since! We dont even get a pep rally 4 FCAT! :( but if i was writing this 3 years ago i would give it 5 stars

This school is somewhat a good school. I am :} that our school has a high school but they made it bad for the middle school kids. We now don't have a nice good track or field and also no tennis court. I will not be attending the high school next year because the fact is, now its just now building up, but I would want to stay because of the medical program. Also this school have some good teachers but some teachers have to be more involved with the students instead they just give them loads of work.Overall this is a good school but need some improvement.

My son is in 6th grade valients team. Teachers are the best and in particular Dr. davis of world history and Mr. Gefen of pre algebra are the best teachers. Regularly, I cross check with teaching method, teachers involvement and attitude of other magnet middle schools in Duval county and I must say that we took right decision to put my son in Darnell-cookman. The school has great decipline as compare to other middle schools and it is much more easy to communicate through email with all teachers, parents co-ordinator and office staff. So far my experince goes, this is the best magnet middle school in Duval county (no doubt).

I graduated from this school last year. I was on the gifted team for the 3 years I attended that school and I was in the medical program. Most of the teachers were phenomenal. There was at least one teacher a year that had corrupted ways of teaching but all the teachers were very friendly and willing to help with anything. From personal experience, I have to say the 8th grade Runics team was by far my favorite. As for the medical program, it was one of the best experiences of my life. I acquired so much knowledge in that class. One overall flaw with the school is that it doesn't prepare you for high school as well as they claim to. Overall an amazing school with an exceptional medical program.

I'm an 8th grade student at darnell cookman. I have found this school to be very good. the school challenges you, and the medical program is great. I myself is in the medical program. I do plan to go to darnell for highschool because the school is affiliated with shands, which is affiliated with UF and UF has already told teachers they want students from darnell. I love this school and the sports are good, clubs are fun, and the after school program 'team-up' is really great if you need tutoring in a subject!

This school has very poor communication skills between the parents & teachers. When my daughter was in the sixth grade, there were school notes that we could use to monitor their assignments. In seventh grade, parents had to chase after teachers just to communicate. For all the kids who are presently attending there, good luck. I am placing my daughter in a better enviroment.

My children enjoy this school but it is not what it is made out to be. I have been very disappointed in the communication. Issues that I believe to need attention must not be important to the vice principal or teachers because I have not heard from the ones I have tried to contact. It is very frustrating. Some teachers are excellent. Others are quite disorganized and not interested in parent involvement. Communication with teachers is difficult because some use email, others don't. Some used school notes, some don't. Some have emails at the duvals schools site while others are still on dreams begin here. It is frustrating for parents who are used to enjoying easy access to teachers and administration. The athletic facilities are poor and the coaching is questionable. They offer many clubs, but the activity bus takes 2 hours to drop my kids near home. Ridiculous.

For gifted students only: i'm a sixth grade student and i'm in gifted. This school is really fun. The work is hard and there is allot of homework, but we do fun experiments and we have viking days (viking days are days when classes are 30 min. And at the end of the day we just hang out with friends). The teachers are really nice and they all have different personalities so your bound to like one of them. Mrs.Looper is really fun, you'll love her.

well i graduated from this school last year. and god it's changed a lot lately. now it's considered SoMA (school of medical arts) but when i went there it was just an advanced/gifted school. all in all, the school's okay i guess... some teachers may get on your nerves and not teach you as much, but when you get to high school, you'll miss them. trust me. sorry to say it, but i dont think that this school really prepares you for high school as much as they emphasized it would. but it's still good to go to because it will look good on your college applications.

This school is amazing! I'm on the Gifted Runics Team, and I am very appreciative of my teachers, Mr. Douthett (Science), Ms. Stansel (US History), Ms. Bolton (French), Mrs. Clancy (English), and Mr. Felice (Geometry). They are unbelievable. Also, Mrs. Looper, a teacher for the 6th grade Eagles, is phenomonal. She is probably the most hard-working teacher alive. She does so much for her students. I absolutely love this school, and it has prepared me for life and college. Next year, I am going to be attending Stanton, in the IB program, because of this wonderful school that pushed me to the limit in the gifted program.

My son is a gifted SOMA student at Cookman. from preschool to third grade he attended private school and was taught with the Beka system. Public school has been a challenge for him in certain subjects but he is finally starting to get comfortable. His writing skills have vastly improved. The teachers are awesome. He's on the Eagles team and I really appreciate the communication between Teacher and parents. When I got his first Progress Report I almost fainted, but his teachers are very helpful and concerned enough to help identify his deficiencies and offer tips on improving his grades. I utilize phone calls, emails and Schoolnotes.com. I am very pleased with the group of teachers that my son have. I give this school and the administrative staff Five stars. Submitted by a parent

I'm currently an 8th grade student at Darnell, and I have to admit really didn't like it Darnell in 6th grade. I guess it was just the change of schools, not knowing anyone, and I had some personal problems at home as well. But, coming back to 7th grade was AWESOME and of course I was a Wolf (best team in the world). My teachers Ms.Parker, Ms.Heaton, Mrs.Dellacrosse, and Mr.Pullen all prepared me greatly for eighth grade I am having barely any difficulties and I owe it to them. The only thing I would have to say about Darnell is people gossip...ALOT and it can really be annoying. Most of the students are nice you just really have to get to know them. The students are really helpful if you ask them how to do a problem they'll gladly help you, if not the teachers have tutoring at least once a week.

My son has been attending this school and I must say, I am so dissapointed. We moved here a few years ago and every since I feel like we have been misled by these schools including magnet schools. First coast sent my son a brochure inviting him to join the AVID program when he was in the eighth grade. I was so happy because we were at a magnet school and had applied to Paxon but got put on a waiting list which meant he would have to attend his neighborhood school which was FCH, well he had to apply for this program and month's later we recieved a letter stating that he had been excepted we were so happy. The program was supposed to be for students who were college bound but needed help organizational skills and study habits. Tutors, College tours was suppose to be provided but that didn't

My child attended this school for the 1st and 2nd quarter of this school year. This school did nothing to help my child. The administration is laid back, and do more socializing than what is expected. The wolves team should utilize email address, phone numbers and etc. to inform parents of academics as well. I felt the need to withdraw my child from this school this year because the teachers and administration displayed their lack of concern in helping me help my child get back on track. From the experience this school is not what it displays it really is.

The school, this year, has been very unorganized and its staff focus has been off track. Academically, it's fine but the principle, security and administrators all need to do a better job. The extracurricular activities are fun and all have marvelous teachers, though students do not seem to be very interested. Parents are very much involved with the school from their child maintaining their grades to putting school events together. I've been attending Darnell since the 6th grade and now I am in the 8th and have been in the gifted program all three years. It is a lot of work, but still, the teachers keep it fun.

Darnell Cookman is an excellent school. I am in the Gifted program and my favorite teacher is Ms. Simmons, the 7th grade gifted language arts teacher.

My daughter attended D-C, before going on to Stanton College Prep. At the time she was in the Medical Magnet and in the accelerated studies program. Dr. J. Rudolph was the Medical advisor and was a wonderful teacher. He inspired and challenged each of his students. All the teachers were there for the kids and went the extra mile. Advisors were wonderful and worked closely with the parents and kids. The foundation, my child received made it possible for her to continue on in Sr. High into the IB program. As a first year college student, my daughter was able to start as a second semester sophomore. Though, she hasn't used it she received a full 100% Bright Futures Scholarship as well as others.

I have to admit I was concerned at first about sending my child to Darnell Cookman. But after the first 9 weeks...I felt I made the right decision. Darnell is truly a learning experience. They teach our children good study habits and they do try and make learning fun for the kids. My son has attended Darnell all 3 years. The teachers are great! I wish he could stay through high school!

Initially, I was reluctant about DC because of community folk lore about the school's expectations. However, I am now pleased that I took the chance. My daughter performs incredibly well with the project focus and cooperative learning. She is becoming very savvy about connecting with teachers when she needs help and clarification. She is forced to organize her time wisely without much guidance(due to a couple of weeks of poor performance/readiness for tests). I only wish that communication to parents were a bit more sophisticated (ie, online or via monthly all-inclusive event calendars). But DC offers a wonderful school experience!

I am not a parent. I am a student. The great thing about DC is that the teachers get more serious as the students progress. Their personalty is just lined up in a way that they are teaching the correct grade level. DC has many extracurricular activities involving different things from Guitar club to band practice to newspaper club, to chess club. That isn't the half of them. Darnell Cookman is a terrific school even though it might not be in a perfect fancy neighborhood it still has great security.
