Joanna Sampson, 6th grade teacher, needs an attitude adjustment. I do not appreciate the way I have heard her speak to children. Especially the younger children. There is absolutely no reason to be so rude to a child. ALSO - No one seems to understand the way the carline operates. Morning drop-off is the most frustrating. TWO lines are to be formed in the car line, but for some reason parents seem to always form one causing the line to back up onto the roadway. You are to form TWO lines people! TWO. Notices need to be sent home to parents as if they were the children because apparently not they can even follow rules.
love your principal, he is one of the best teachers and great influence on children. thanks
I went to Champ Cooper and so does my daughter. It is a pretty good school, but I've found that it depends on what teacher your child has. I wish they had more afterschool activities, and an afterschool care program. And someone on here said their kids went there K-12. Champ Cooper only goes to 8th grade!
I went to this school 5th-8th. I absolutely loved this school and would give anything to go back. You can't blame bad grades on a teacher, or school. The teachers here work their hardest to be at the top of their game. I appreciate everything these people have done for me. They truely care about their students education. Amazing school. Myself as well as many others of my classmates still would love to go back.
I think Cooper is a pretty decent school. I have a child there in the Autism program as well as in the mainstream classroom...They have the best program for these children around. However, the down side of this school is that they do not have enough extra activities/sports for these children. We need for kids to have these things readily available so they can stay on the right track growing up and out of trouble. All I ever see for this are notes about what the YMCA offers...which is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too expensive!...what happened to SCHOOLS offering sports programs for younger kids?!?!?!?! By the time I was in 5th grade, my walls were plastered with awards from Acting, Singing AND Sports. Now days, the kids don't stand a chance in that area and we all wonder why they hang out with the wrong crowds and find the wrong ways to 'stay busy'.
Use to be a 5 star education experience but since the school has become so liberal and left its true values, it has dropped a star
This school does not want parent involvment , they are only interested in financial parent involvment. They don't respect the parents anymore than the children. This school is not as warm and cozy as they want everyone to believe it is. Instead of it having a positive affect on my child, he hates school and would drop out today if he could. And I blame that on the school, because he loves to learn, but has been humilated daily at that school and sorry to say not my other students, but by administration.
I have substituted at this school for a number of years and have experienced first hand that most of the teachers there are not interested in being there at all. They act like they hate their jobs and the students. I hate that my child has to attend this school. He was previously at another school where he was on honor roll two nine weeks, since transfering, he has gone down to B's and C's. They need better teachers who care about the children and their education!
I went to Champ Cooper as a child.Now both of my children is going there.My children has done well in there studies.Although I do agree that the school needs to provide help to students who does have ADHD.My child was diagnosed with ADHD.I was upset when I found out that they have no special programs that could help with this.I think the school board needs to figure out a way to help students that has special needs in Reading,Spelling,and Comprehending.But I think the faculty of the school is doing a wonderful job.
All of my children have attended this school K-12. I think it is an exceptional school dedicated to teaching our children. I believe there should be more extracurricular activities offered but I think the current principle is working on doing that. I agree parent involvement is low but I hold the members of the PTA responsible for that. Seems they want to 'choose' who they want involved with their organization.
Champ Cooper is a great school. The emphasis is placed on academics and therefore we have some of the highest testing scores in the parish. The teachers /staff are exceptional. This is a top rated elementary school and should be praised as such. I agree that the parent involvement is low but I believe the parents must first want to get involved. This is not a daycare or after-school care provider. Extracurricular activities are available but the test scores come first. I moved to the area because of this school and I believe I made the correct choice.
This school does not allow parents to get involved in the school. They do not have any kind of music , art or sports for the little ones. They don't even offer after school care or before school care. I think we have some of the worst teacher. They only care about a pay check. I find it is hard on the kids that needs more help then others. I am always asking for them to give a little more help to my child. She is ADHD. All I hear is that they have other kids in class.
