I am a former student at cochiti and I loved it, I was here kindergarten through 5th grade and graduated in the 2007-2008 school year. This school has the best principle. However the teachers are where it really depends some are good some are bad! They also have the best school councilor and school nurse, my only issue were sometimes the front office people had bad attitude but overall the best school ever!
I have nothing but good things to say about Cochiti. The staff is wonderful including the principal and I am very please with individual attention each child has received (I have three kids that attended Cochiti). The gifted program is excellent and my children have been given the necessary tools they need to move on in middle school.
What i think about Cochite elementary is that it is a very nice school. The teachers there are very wonderful upright and intelligent and know how to have a great time. The billungual service is not up to capcity there should be more envolvement in it and the students how are spanish speaking should get a chance just like every body else. The art is good and great. There should be more after school activitys for children and the principal should run a poll saying what kids like most and try to organize that.I think cochite is a good school and a great place to learn.
