My son started school this year and we had a rough start but Mrs Shephard and all of the other staff has turned this into a wonderful experience for my son. I can not say enough good things about his teacher, she has been a blessing to our son and his confidence in his acadimic ability. What a difference a year makes my son can read small books and write complete sentences with minor help. His math skill are off the chain. The staff seems to take a vested interest in my son, all smiles ands hugs when he sees them. We are moving across the bridge but if we was to stay closer my hubby and I would do whatever to keep my son at this school. I am sad that he can not remain in this learning enviroment the has been caring, patient, and kind to him and us.
I love this school. I like over 20 miles away and my husband and I take my child to school everyday. Ms. Cunningham the principal is excellent and the best teacher that I have ever encountered just retired from Cochran Ms. Walker. Without her both of my children would be struggling academically. As a result of her caring about my children and their education both of them are above grade level.
This school has the most respectful students, and extremely caring staff and teachers. The principal is extremely active in the engagement and learning experience of every students, ensuring that they are content and successful.
My 2 kids went to Cochran throughout grade school and they absolutely loved it. I really like the school and worked hard to keep them there when we moved. They have a great music and art program, teach the entire school sign language, and - of course - offer a great education . The only sport offered is basketball, but they do have Girls on the Run, CHOICE, Girl Scouts, FAST, and few other programs that come and go. They also offer after school reading and/or math help for those student that need extra practice. Parent involvement is moderate to low, but it doesn't seem to hinder the quality of the school. M.M.
I have had two kids go to Cochran and they loved it! My son went in the late 80's or early 90's and my daughter is getting ready to graduate there. They have been so caring and wonderful! Ms. Cunningham the counselor is awesome, and Ms. Baker the ece teacher is like family, she is a great teacher!
