This school has always been a great school with great teachers. The sad part is within the administration dept. parents don't feel welcomed any more. They have been shut out by a principal that has no people skills let alone skills with children. I have never seen her with the children on a positive light. She has her little click of people that she uses that if your not part if then you not welcome. She's furthering her on agenda to make her resume better. It's time for parents to stand together and let people know they work for us and our children and not the other way around. If not it will eventually be to late to do anything. We need an dmistration team thats as strong as our teachers so that our children have the best available to them.

Very frustrated. This is my daughter's second year. I loved it last year. This year it's a business. They only care about money. My daughter has been so sick because they would rather sick teachers and students. Very annoyed that it has become about money and not the welfare of the children.

Incredible school! The teachers and staff are caring and very supportive. I feel confident in knowing when I send my chidlren to school they are in a comfortable, positive, safe environment. Martin Walker is a school which other Elementary schools look to for academic success, by modeling some of their unique programs. You will not be disappointed with your choice to send your children to Martin Walker!

Great! My son has been to three schools in Copperas Cove, one on Fort Hood, Two in Garland, Texas, and this is the ONLY school in 4 years that he ENJOYS. He comes home everyday happy, seems well adjusted and is NOT whiny and complaining everyday. Plus, the teaches there do not yell, scream, berate children, or throw there desk across the room. Not to mention, at lunch there are no signs or cones tell them to hold there voices down. The kids are allowed to talk as much and as often as they would like and surprisingly this is the ONLY cafeteria I have been inside in the last 4 years that was actually calm and fairly quiet. Respectful, our kids are NOT animals and should NOT be treated as SUCH!

Martin Walker Elementary is absolutely amazing. The staff is out of this world. I won't go into detail but I will say that any one group that suffered as many unfourtunate personal situations as this group did last year and were able to remain kind, courteous, and STILL put all of the children first, just absolutely amazing. This bunch of ladies and gentleman represent Copperas Cove well. I never thought I would say that I felt a part of this community, but AMAZING is ALL that I can say. The quality of education that my child recieved here in 1st grade is unprecedented, to say the least. Others have named names, but if I do so the list will not stop, from the secretaries, to the registrars to the staff...everyone! Top notch performers, and I think the principal did everything to ensure that the staff conveyed this. This is definitely my family. If you go here...get involved, they appreciate it and it shows! Thank you Martin Walker family! I keep wanting to name names but honestly all of these ladies and gentlemen are phenomenal! Katherine said it! It is true!

I can't say enough how much i love this school. i drive 20 minutes to take my daughter there and it is well worth it. My daughters teachers Ms. Sides and Ms. Johns are always kind, respectful, friendly and have a great relationship with my daughter and i. the first day of school i fell in love when every single staff member said 'good morning' to my daughter and i with a smile on their faces :)

They have an amazing Pre-K Program!. I have 3 children in 3 different Pre-K Classes and each teacher tends to their own indiviual needs. Everyone from the front office down to the Janitor and Lunch Ladies are guinely compasionate, caring adults. I have spent time with their volunteer program, well organized and they will use all the help they can get to benefit children of ALL ages.

This school is wonderful, My child is in PK and her Teacher is Mrs. Lee. Mrs. Lee works so well with the children. My child comes home teaching me new things that she has learned everyday. Also the people that help with drop and pick are so nice and you can tell they love to be working at this school. Happy teachers, happy kids learn better. Thank you Mrs. Lee for all the hard work you do with our children.

My son has been in this school since Pre-K. Now I have 3 of my 4 kids in this school. I tried them at another school last year, but they were moved right back. The staff is great. Most of them know me on a first name basis. The security at this school is great. I feel safe knowing that not just anyone can walk in and wonder the halls. If it was up to me they would be here the rest of their elementary days, but the new zoning keeps them out next year. This is going to be a hard move for me and them, but honestly I don't have a choice.

When my daughter attended this school, I was very pleased with the whole environment of the school. The teachers were awesome, the principal was very involved and genuinely concerned with the children. After being in the school just a few times, the receptionist knew me on sight, remembered who my child was, and her name! I feel this is a great school and my daughter loved going there.

This school is very well organized. The teachers are very informed and involved with the students and parents. They keep the parents informed of the childs progress and try to help if the student needs it. The principal is always willing to meet with parents to dicuss the student. the activities are fun for the students and enjoyable for the parents. Like I said the parents are very involved and willing to help out at the school at anytime, most of the volunteers are parents of students that attend the school. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their child to have the best education advantage they could in this area.

This is a wonderful school. The principal takes a personal interest in the children. He sent me a postcard praising my kindergartener who had read to him something she had written in her 'Writing to Read' Class. The school staff were all very welcoming, which was wonderful. They have a parent lounge where parents can come and volunteer for a specific teacher or any teacher. It is also used for nervous parents leaving their kids at school for the first time. Younger children are welcome in the lounge. This school has won several academic awards. I love their system for dropping off and picking up the children. I can stop by anytime to take lunch with my daughter, I love that! They have family night once a month at the school. Parents are always ecouraged to participate. My daughter really enjoyed attending this school and the staff.
