Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

They all are caring, respectful, and they bring their 100% to the table, it's the students who cause all the issues.

Amount of homework: Disagree

Teachers don't bother to teach seeing as students don't bother to listen and they outright disrespect the teachers.


Develops character: Disagree

They try to promote it, but the discipline structure is a joke and the students are all disrespectful.

As a former student who is now off to college, my year at this school had taught me many things. I used to despise school and I went to some really great schools, but I learned to value the schools I went to and ended up going to. Almost everyday there was a kid, or various students who started a distraction in the classroom and sometimes even a fight. The result being that the teacher refused to teach and graded the good students greatly for doing nothing. I also learned that the teachers were people too. I would not call myself the best student, but I had an amazing time conversing with all the teachers and they truly cared for the students and wanted them to be their best. Sadly, no other student saw this in the teachers leading in a massive disrespect for authority. Parents beware the re-branding as Cochrane Collegiate Academy means nothing, seeing as they have gotten no improvement. It is still an Alternative School.

The school has some great faculty but the students are ruthless, undisciplined and already off to a bad future. I have never had any discipline problems from my daughter until she started going to this school. Students are picking at her, telling her who she can be friends with and what to say to people. She feels intimidated and don't want to go to school. The students are wearing anklet bracelets and is on probation. They need to be in an alternative school vs. regular population. They are an obstacle for students who want to learn as my daughter. She wants to go Duke. She wants to be a Peditrician. Now she so focused on not going to school its disappointing and very upsetting.

If you can help it, DO NOT have your child enrolled in this school. As a new resident to the Charlotte area, the office staff assured me my son would continue hisEngineering studies but he was NOT assigned to any such thing. I was informed to contact CMS but wasn't given any details regarding how to have this done. After it was done (he transferring from regular to Engineering classes), he still remained in his original classes for nearly 2 weeks. I originally decided to change my son from this school because of the ratings on this site but the office staff assured me everything would coincede with his home school's schedule. THAT WAS NOT TRUE. I also find that the teachers are either unconcern to maintain contact with the parent or condenscending in his/her attitude. "Can't wait for a change to come!"

As a former student I can say Cochrane is not a bad school but is far from being good. MANY times the teachers complained about the limited resources this school had to offer and the staff definitely could have been more encouraging. Cochrane Middle School did not have a positive impact in my education I would not recommend this school to parent's who VALUE their child's education.

The 6th grade language art teachers are hard working and really care about their student progress and achievement. It would help if more of the parents would encourage their children to make education an important part of their future. Great things are happening at Cochrane but, it take everyone, the students, teachers, parents and the administrators to make a great school.

I am a former student at this school and yes this school could use a lot of improvement but overall this is a good school. Yes the test scores may be low but some of the students at this school do try really hard. I know that there are rumors about this school bvut if you plan on sending your child here go ahead because if you know that your child wants to learn then yes tis school will bea good one. The school doesnt make the child the child makes the school.
