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.
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.
im currently a 7th grader now but i moved here after 5th grade and this school makes everyone feel safe and welcome.its hard to be there on the first day because you get lost or you dont know anyone but you make friends fast on the first day.i highly think you should send your kids to cole because they do everything they can just to help you out trust me! its the best school in the district not even going to lie i thought my old school was better but its really not! cole is the best school so send your kids here and no where else and you will love the results i promise you that!
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!!!
Hello, I am a currently attending Cole Middle School right now. Cole is a very good school, mostly all teachers are nice and and the extracarricular activities are great! If you were thinking about enrolling your child to Cole, it is a very good idea. We are the BEST of the BEST! 'EAST IS BEAST!
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!
