I went to pick up my little sister and yes my mom forgot to put on as a contact. So it's was a issue but Marion in the front was very unhelpful cut me off when I was speaking to her didn't say excuse me and picked up the phone while I was speaking to her. I had to ask her what to do to get my sister out she did not offer any help it was like playing 21 questions with her. I finally got an answer from her what I needed to do I called my mom and my mom called the school and she was giving her a hard time?!

i just came to this school this year and it was a big change. i made friends quickly but most of them are guys because the girls here are self centered and catty. but i feel like i haven't learned anything. i got a lot of work done in my old school and every student here just doesn't shut up and pay attention to the class. all my grades are low!! and some of my teachers are strict and don't teach very well. i hate school but i do wanna learn. i only like coming to talk to my friends.

Too many rules limit the human mind. This school will strip your children of their individuality, If they have any left. Teach your children to question everything they here, and that bending to conformity will deprive them of their freedom. Let them decide their own morals and tell them not to impose them on others.

The teachers and principals really care about the kids here. Wonderful family community to live in.

Great school with Great teachers and Principals. My children attended Copperas Cove High School and had great caring teachers. I know there is a lot of push for the TAKS Test and I understand it is state driven and CCISD has to follow standards sets. Thank you teachers for going above and beyond to teach my children

I have a son that is in the 9th grade at this school and I amazed at how the teachers and the staff treat the kids with respect,and they are there if the students need them. School just started but I have already had calls from Mr. Hart letting me know my son's progress and if there are any areas that my son has expressed that need to be took care of and how he feels about the school. I appreciate the calls and the concern that he has for his students. My son has a positive attitude and wants to attend college and he is in the ROTC program and really loves the school. This is a excellent school for anyone's child to attend. I have tried others and this will be the school my son graduates from. GO Copperas Cove High

I have a 10th grade student at CCHS, this is his first year at the high school and so far I am very satisified with the school. I do not agree with the TAKS test, but also know that many of the teachers aren't either, sadly, that's not their choice. I feel the school is safe, teachers care about their students and are available to help if it is asked for. Although, yes their sports programs are very intense.

I am very pleased with the honors program. My daughter did very well on her SATs and I credit her teachers. I am impressed with Coach jackson and his expectations he has for his students in AP English. I know that my daughter will go to college prepared for college level classes.

CCHS has some amazing teachers, like Ms. Sheffield and Mrs. Hofford who go above and beyond the limit but then there are teachers who do below the bare minimum..really? these are the ones teaching our future generations? The rules are not followed through by the administration..it's hypocritical. All teachers focus on is the Taks...what about the actual curriculum. When American schools are compared to other nations' schools, they don't care about a state implemented test.

The teachers do not care about the students. Everything any student does is scrutinized by the teachers, principals, and other administrative staff. We have no freedom.

Cove is a great place to go to high school. The teachers actually try to get you to learn and you can talk to them like someone to look up to, not just an uptight teacher. I left cove because of the army, and if I could go back I would. You would really have to go there to know. Cove is getting better every year, I love it.

Not a safe high school. Very little Teacher and principal involvement with students. Principal does not stand behind teachers.

This school is pretty awesome, especially considering we have great teachers like Mrs. Hofford, Mrs. Cullar, Mrs. Devillier, and such. The one thing I absolutely miss is our block schedule- seriously, that was super convenient. Overall a very positive experience. It was the cooliest.

Copperas Cove High school does not impress me in the least. The teachers just kind of show up and sit there. My daughter didn't learn anything new her junior and senior years and now I have another child that is a sophomore and luckily she is in the band where there is at least evidence of learning new music and marching routines so I know the teacher teaches SOMETHING!If I could leave Texas I would. I am tired of having my children in schools where one stupid test is the only thing anyone cares about.

I don't agree with the TAKS testing. I think that we should allow the teachers to pass or fail a student based on the their performance throughout the year. I also don't think that the principal (Mr. Willey) cares about the children, its just a paycheck.

My son graduated from Copperas Cove High School and my daughter is currently in the 10th grade. The school is a closed campus - no students can leave for lunch; anyone entering campus must sign in. This is fine. However, the entire campus seems to worry about athletics more than academics. There are principals for each grade, yet things still slip through the cracks. They spent $millions building a new fine arts auditorium, yet wouldn't arrange enough seating to hold graduations there and we must trek 35 miles away into another county for graduations. Overall, a good school in this area - most around here are poor - but is lacking compared to most states.

I graduated from CCHS in 2002. The teachers are wonderful, and the principals are getting better. The JROTC program is wonderful! The new auditorium is perfect.

I was once a student at Copperas Cove High, it had a wonderful academic program with lots of classes dedicated to ensuring college acceptence and readiness. It is a great school and I wish I could return again sincerely, Tatiana Gilbert Former student P.S. If you know Anastasia Massey tell her I said hello and i hope that she is doing well.

I am not pleased to know that my child's school is listed as 'acceptable' by the state. I think the school should do a much better job in communicating with me as a parent. The school's website offers very little information about events at the school and is not updated often. There is no PTA for parents to be more involved even though I have asked several times in the school's guidance office. Often, my child has no homework since teachers were absent and the students watched a Disney movie instead of learning. Even in the most advanced clases available in her grade level, she is doing worksheets and watching movies instead of having challenging, thought-provoking assignments. Since there are no private high schools available in the area, and nearby districts seem to have worse ratings and conditions, I feel like the lack of competition for the best teachers and students is creating a school system that doesn't care if my child learns or not.

Academicly it's a good school. Extra Curricular Activities, it has a great football team, great Band, great dance team and an outstaning JROTC program. The leadership of the school is headed by a great principle and the teaching staff is one of the best I've see. The parential involment is much like most schools. If the kid is in trouble, the parents show up. I am both a parent and a teacher here. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else as long as the administrators are here also.
