The staff at Coffenberry is great and they work hard with the small amount of resources they are given. The principal (Park) has no business working with kids and is a real jerk to deal with. I will not send my kids there as long as he is the principal.
I think Coffenberry is an excellent school,There are some teachers that really try and reach out to each and every student and you can definetly tell which ones they are.Then there are those teachers who just yell at the kids and make the kids hate them.The sports could be better,All there really was was Volleyball Basketball Track Football and Wrestling,I would love to see them get into Softball,Baseball and Soccer.I would like to see Coffenberry become a better school considering I was a recent 8th grader.I know what the school is like and I have a better veiw than parents would.
I have had five children attend Coffenberry. I appreciated the advanced math programs. My children were involved in the band program which fed into a high school state championship band. They participated in volleyball, basketball, football, wrestling and track. The staff had good communication with the parents and I appreciated that. I was unable to attend the parent group meetings but they were an active group and provided a wonderful moving on ceremony for the eighth graders. Great experience!
I've had a good experience our first year. I think that there is not alot of encouragement for parent involvement, and I don't like that. My child is too young for scool sports this year, but he has loved his teachers and enjoyed class. The Band teacher is new to the area, and has been great. Both he and the Highschool teacher have worked together to encourage the kids to enjoy the experience. Overall, I think Coffenberry is a good school!
