This school is filled with disrespectful and rude children that do not value an education. I feel sorry for the children that want and value an education because the environment they have to be educated in is so disruptive. It is hard to rate the teachers when they are teaching to a class that has at least 6 or more children that are rude, disruptive and disrespectful. There should be some sort of program that reaches out to these children that do not care about education and lets them know how important education is and without an education they have no future.

. Everyone has been so harsh on the E.A. Cox s principle! I have talked to her a few times and she does have a hard shell. However she really does care that s why she is so strict. A few people have made great comments about the special ed/resource program; these are all because of the principle. Her goal is to get every child into the regular classroom before high school. This truly makes or breaks a student's future. I guarantee if you go to the school and ask the principle if there is anything you can do to help out you will see another side of her. Everything she does is for the students. There is no way the school board is going to take her out of the school and I wouldn t either.

Cox has a few great teachers that seem to really care about the kids. I am not pleased with the principal. She doesnt have very good communication skills with the kids or the parents. I wish this school would find a new one. Over all this is the only reason why Im not pleased. My childs teachers have all done a great job. The other thing that worrys me as a parent is the lack of supervision.

This school is in dire need of a principal-one who is concerned about addressing problems with workable solutions. There are some extremely good teachers at this school-it's the leadership that needs to be corrected.

Awful. Absolutely no structure and discipline is inconsistent. The overall focus of the school is is not on helping the children thrive and most definitely not on the students safety.

I'll echo the great band, music and sports programs. My son has been involved in all and has learned so much.

Great band, music, art, athletic programs. Academically one of the best in Middle Tennessee. Could use more teachers.
