My first child is starting 8th grade at Cole this year and my second child is entering the school as a 6th grader. Our experience has been for the most part very positive. The environment at the school is very safe, positive and productive. The principal and vice principal do not tolerate any inappropriate behavior and the extracurriculars are very good. There is a strong emphasis on sports (district wide) but the art and music departments are also excellent. There are very high academic expectations, and I would like to see more support for the middle achievers to become high achievers, and an honors English class. I've heard that support for IEP kids is very good.

This principle does not promote academic excellence in this school. She does not encourage students working towards their potential.

I am a student at this school. The academic classes are way too easy for all the kids. For all of the people who think it is easy don't try. If people don't try what is the point of even going there? This school only cares about its name, not the students. It is one of the worst schools in the state. Do not consider enrolling here.

I had two go through this school. The first one always was made to feel like there was something wrong with her, and us. We worked very hard but never quite felt supported. Equally bad experience with number 2. They like everyone to think its the best school in the state, but actually alot of cliques and bullying.

I sent my children to this school. I don't like the result. It was a great school under principal Militello.

The only honors' classes offered are 7th grade, and 8th grade accelerated math course. The 8th grade accelerated math course is a regular Algebra 1 course. Students are placed to two teams per grade for easy administration. There is an extraordinary amount of tutors hired by the parents in this community, which has inflated the real capabilities of the system.

Horrible response time from teachers/administration. Very unoganized!! Possible for kids to slip through if the administration doesn't think they are worth helping. This school tends to cover up incidents so you will never know if anything bad happens to your child!!!

I attend this school currently and it is definitley of of the bet middle schools in the state, if not the best. There are not many cilques and new students blend in fast and within a month its like they've been there forever. The color team program is organized and there are many amazing after-school activities to participate. There are high expectations but not difficult to achieve and the teachers are very understanding and kind. GO COLE LANCERS!

I attend this school right now, and all I can say is WOW! I have been in this school my entire middle school career, and it has been a blast! Yes, the teachers do expect a lot from you and set high standards, but it's nothing unattainable, as I am an honor student. The students are extremely friendly and the different programs offered are fantastic, especially the new one called C2 (C squared). It's a great way to get close to people you may not have been friends with before. The teachers and staff at Cole always have fun new ideas and raffles to enter with fun and crazy things! The Cole Mile is coming up again and I can't wait for another fun day! I highly suggest sending your children here!

I attend this school currently and I think it's great. I moved from Barrington public schools last year, and I do think they compare at the same, if not Cole is a little better. GO COLE!

I have atteneded cole for both 7th and 8th. I personally think its the best in the state. The expectations from the teachers are set high but nothing that we cant handle. If you move to EG I highly seguest sending them to cole because all the kids in both 7th and 8th are really nice and so are the teacher. There is no way that anyone wont fit in.

I have attended Cole for both seventh and eighth grade and it is the best school that I have ever been to! It is an enviting and comfortable environment that encourages learning. The teachers are fast paced and absolutely love what they do. The standards are higher than in other schools in the state and children are expected to meet them. Kids who are having dificulties can see their teachers before or after school for extra help, but the resposiblity for comming is given to the child. There are many fun after school activities and sports programs (both intramural and varsity) that kids are encouraged to participate in. Many after school activities are award winning. The mock trial team has won compitition at the state level for the past five years! I would encourage any parent to send their child to Cole. You wont regret it!
