As a whole, coosa middle is a pretty good school. I do feel that they need to either install a camers system, or use the system if they have one.There is a thief if not more than one that is stealing everything they can get their hands on, and nothing has been done about this thief or thieves.Kids should be able to bring a purse to school, especially for personal reasons, and it not get stolen. Someone at the school should set up a decoy to catch whomever is doing this. Some of the teachers are a bit rough around the edges, but most are great! the band and sports are also great! just catch the thief or thieves there and send them to a school!

This school is great. Coosa has many different ethnicities at Coosa. There aren't to many sudents and there are enough teachers. They have Distance Learning with Armuchee, Model and Pepperell Middle Schools. The Parents are involved. The Chorus program isn't as good as it's afterschool. The Band program is great and it's during school. There is Spanish, German, French, and Geometry Distance Learning classes. The Distance Learning classes are great. The art program is pretty good. Sports are very great there. They have Basketball, Tennis, Football, Soccer, Baseball, Softball, Cheerleading for Basketball and Football. There aren't many other extracurricular activities, though. That is all that I can think of. Good luck finding a school.
