Cope middle school has the best letter grade in its area, which is why we chose it. Mrs. Grooms is one of the best principles that we have ever met, but her staff are not. My child and her friends felt that her English teacher shows blatant favoritism toward the cheerleaders. I as a parent felt a bit out of the loop, like maybe they could do a better job at making sure that the parents know what is going on. They could We are a military family and my children have gone to better schools! Its nothing to rave about and its not the worse.
Cope Middle School is the 2010-2011 top rated middle school in Bossier Parish. Both of my children attended for three years, this school has a fabulous administration, staff and students. They are always looking for new and better ways to do things and not just do what has worked in the past. I would not have chosen any other middle school to send my children to.
Cope has been a good school for our son. He has been pushed acedemically and has thrived socially. Not all of the teachers are what I would consider to be great, but many are wonderful. There is a fair amount of teaching for the LEAP test, but that is what we have experienced in this area (Shreveport schools are much worse about this!). The principal is fabulous! She takes every concern seriously and has time for every parent, every child. She strives to know all of the students by name and attends every academic, musical and atletic event. The new band director is wonderful. I would love to be here in 2-3 years to see what he does with the program! I wanted private schools, but this was a decient alternative. I just wish they had more sports!
My son is in 8th grade this year & will be going to Airline next year. I LOVE Cope & Mrs. Judy Grooms (the principal), she is absolutely awesome:)
In my opinion and many others, Cope is an excellent school. I would never want to go to another school. I'm going to my 3rd year at Cope And i love it not nearly as much violence as another school.
Teacher's are very knowledgeable and go out of their way to help students.
My daughter chelsi attended this school, and i want to say that i have never seen any other school get so involved with the students. This school has shown my daughter what life is all about. These teachers and adminestrative had been really helpful through my daughters attendace. -Kaci Lyn
My child attended this school for three years. The principals, teachers and administration were very caring before and after she was diagnosed with Graves Disease. I will be forever greatful at the attention, and support they provided my child during her education. My child was an active honor student. With much prayer, family support intervention and love from Cope she survived and is now in high school. Thanks Cope.
