Copeland Elementary has improved tremendously. The new administration has done wonders at Copeland and everyone is working towards one main goal...student achievement! It is a wonderful school for students in the area! Go Wildcats!

Copeland is a school that has done nothing but go down hill in the few years my child has been going there. most of the teachers do not care, the principal only cares if it benefits her. They do not follow proper protocall if something happens to your child. Also there is alot of favoritism there too.

Copeland is a school that has steadily been improving throughout the years. We have students who are well behaved, a dedicated and caring staff and a building that is safe and secure.
