Cordova Elementary has some great potential if the teachers would be more concerned with their students and Parents. many parents are afraid to voice their opinion about the teachers because of fear what the teacher might do to the child and this is uneceptable. The school itself is great but some of the Teachers are not.
I am a teacher in another school, but my son goes there, overall this is the best school I know. Faculty, staff and the community in general contributes with the best for education.
My daughter has been at Cordova Elementary since Kindergarten. She is now in 2nd grade. We have been very pleased with the teachers and the administration. The involvement of parents is such an important part of children's learning experiences and Cordova has great parents that are involved. My only concern is the lack of an art program (Memphis City pulled the funding). Thankfully our PTA has the cultural art program where our children learn art through parent volunteers and artists in the community. The comment that was negative above mine, was obviously made by an uninvolved parent. I want my child to be challenged and Cordova does this. The homework is not too much and these children need an education. These are the people who will be running this country 30 years from now. I am very pleased with Cordova
My son has attended Cordova Elementary school from kindergarten through the 2nd grade. Overall I am very pleased with teachers, curriculum, and school grounds. Cordova has an accelerated reading program that lets each child maximize his reading potential. I have volunteered in the shool during the past three years. In doing so, I have become familiar with most of the teachers from kindergarten through fourth grade. Most of the teachers seem interested in providing a great learning environment and care for their students. The principal, Ms. Avanzi, is excellent. I would trust her judgement in choosing new teachers, etc. Overall, Cordova Elementary. The school is a few years old. All of the facilities are clean and well maintained. Overall, Cordova Elementary is a great option for parents who wish to keep their child in a public shcool around memphis.
I am very disapointed with this school, my child teacher don't seem to understand my need in having answers when I question her. This and some other administrative problems makes this school lack in good reviews. Besides the kids have to much homework and this will only make them hate school. They spend too much time in school already and they should make the most out of it, and not have the child come home and sit down again for another 20 or 30 minutes to do their homework, and some cases even more than an hour. The system is overworking the kids too early in childhood, somethings needs to change, or our society is going to grow more and more stressed. That's the future of our kids, more stress, more work.
I have two children that are attending Cordova Elementary. My son is in the second grade,he comes from a struggling school. He is not on the level he should be on. He has a wonderful and caring teacher who has helped him in every subject. This teacher has helped him come a very long way.
My daughter is a third grader at Cordova and she loves it. Great teachers and super parental involvement. The support classes are very well done. It is a challenging program that yields excellence.
We currently have two children in Cordova Elementary and love it. Mrs. Avanzi is doing a fantastic job as principal.
