Great extracurricular choices--something for everyone (garden club, art club, ski club, and lots more). That's on the good side. On the bad side are the academics. Yes, the teachers are nice, but the curriculum is sorely deficient. Gotta feel bad knowing these kids are going to be thrown into high school totally unprepared.
Just moved to the area, the secretary is unpleasant/ uncooperative. I'm unable to get a tour of the school during the day, only after hours. Very disappointed as I pay about $6K in taxes per yr for the schools alone.
I have a 6th grade student at Cooper. It is a great school - the best i have experienced yet. The teachers are very knowledgeable and i love the extra curricular programs the school offers, in terms of Sports and music - for the childerns involvement. Great allaround!.
My child is a new sixth grader and is loving it so far. He is on a great team with very nice teachers. He is a bright student and comes home telling us he is having fun. He is doing great things and is challenged...can't wait for the opportunity to get his hands on the new Chromebook!
I am student at the school, and I think that all the teachers are great. The school has a great accelerated program, and all students are in the classes that fit their needs. We do a lot of hard working, but still have fun. That keeps students attached to the learning and ready to learn, ALWAYS! -a current student-
The teachers don't care about the education of the students, they're just here to collect their paychecks. Many of the teachers have actually admitted to not caring about students and have stressed the fact that it's just a job to them. Many of the teachers are clueless about the subjects they teach about. They google most of the questions that students ask them. Also, teachers think that they let students have "fun" in the school. That's a joke. They yell at you for talking (even while they're not talking), they yell at you for being in the hall after the passing period even if you have a pass, they don't allow you to use the bathroom no matter how much of an emergency it is but whenever they need to use it they just leave the class and use it and ask another teacher to watch over the students, teachers also bully students and talk bad stuff about them to other students, and teachers will openly tell other students your grades. The principle doesn't do anything. Read her reviews from students from Thompson Middle School and you'll see. This school is terrible. Avoid it at all costs. -- Current Student
This school was great. Every teachers don't hesitate giving help to students. My son transfered as I moved, but I thougth I can give 5 Star without question on this school. I would like to give many thanks to teachers and Priciple. Thnak you.
There's little or no communication with parents. Most of the teachers shouldn't be teaching. The administration needs to be fired. They can't do their jobs!
My daughter is in special ed and Cooper is the only school (of 4 attended) that addresses her needs fully. The Principal addressed a bullying issue himself and it stopped immediately. My daughter loves Cooper, and so do we.
I'm a gifted student attending this school and I'm not gettng much out of it. I learn more doing programs and reading books outside of class. It's like the teachers don't care as much they need to. I can only name a few that truely go beyond and care about their students' success. It clearly doesn't meet my expectations and it won't help me much in life.
There is a lack of communication with the parents. I know of two fights in the cafeteria that parents were not notified of. The Honor ceremony was blah and lacked any real sense of recognition for students who achieved academic success. Students who didn't miss any school days were not recognized. There was no recognition for other divisions such as science, math, etc. The drop off and pickup situatioin is atrocious.
Amazing staff at the school. Academic programs and skills are amazing, my clid grew and learned so much from this school. And so many activities for parents and students too!
Copper's 'new age' approach neglects the basics essential to every child's educational experience. Classes are not all run with an equal emphasis on providing a robust, challenging, academic environment. Teachers and staff are condescending and unresponsive to parents. If you have any options, do not send your child to this school.
Awesome school! so many things to do! lots of kids to make friends with. No bullying at all! the teachers make class fun!
the accelerated programs are really good they let the gifted sdudent's go higher and meet other gifted friends. the teachers are really nice and there is close to no bullying. there is close to nobody who do drugs. over all it's a magnificent schhol
