I had 2 daughters go through this school with one currently in the school for her second year. I am thoroughly disappointed with the leadership and example some of the teachers set for our children. I trust the the school leaders would set good examples at all times. This is not the case with Cox Middle school. There are good teachers there but some teachers that are very poor examples and use there athority to be nothing more than County employed bullys. I can't speak for any other school but Cox is just a step above a dictatorship on how it leads it's other activities other than teaching.
We moved here last year and at first I was nervous about my daughter going to school here because I heard bad things about it. But now that she has gone here for a year I don't know why people talked bad about it. Yes the dress code is strict and some things are to touchy but I feel kids our so focused on showing skin now days that it takes away from education so I'm all for the dress code. I do feel that they should have a better choice of elective classes other than band and Teen Living but maybe that can progress as the years do. I feel the security and friendliness of the school is great. We felt so welcome when we moved here.
E.A. Cox is a wonderful school. Their teachers create a good enviornment for the kids. They have great sports programs and encouragement is a very important thing here. I highly recomend it. My friends and I lve it there.
This is a very good school. This past year the Maury County School Board has really messed things up with the dress code. Instead of addressing the 'problem people' utilizing our old dress code, they made a new dress code. This dress code is hard for parents to adhere to due to the styles that are currently out there. The teachers do now spend excessive amounts of time on the dress code. Teaching is their job - not being 'clothes police'.
The teachers are more concerned about policing the students that teaching and creating an environment condusive to expanding the children's potential.
