Overall this is a good school. However, their communication could improve. The one/two teacher conferences that last about 15 minutes just is not enough. The teacher's we have do not keep up their website very well. That could improve. E-mails to parents from teachers every couple weeks stating how the student could improve would be nice. The teachers, leadership and staff are very friendly and all return calls quickly. They do their best to resolve issues very quickly too. Overall is a good school.

My son has attended Cockrell from Kindergarten and is now in the 4th grade. It is true that 2008 through 2011 the staff, teachers and principals were not helpfu but very controlling. However, they have come a long way. We had some serious issues with our child last year and all at Cockrell bent over backwards to assist. This is a VERY good school with caring and loving teachers, staff and a dynamic principal. You would be blessed if your child were to go to Cockrell. Keep up the great work folks!

I am extremely happy with the education my two children have received there. They have been there since Pre-K and are now in 1st and 3rd grade. Teachers are all very dedicated and PTA works very hard. It is sad to see a couple of isolated cases dragging down the rating in this web site...

The staff has done an outstanding job with my son. He got blessed with an awesome teacher that he looks forward to see her everyday.

This is my daughters last year at Cockrell and I have seen an improvement in the principals and staff. I hope they keep up the good work for the rest of the kiddos to come. :-)

This is an excellent school. The teachers and staff go out of their way to provide support. It is evident they care about the students. Teachers are very responsive and return phone calls and are available to meet.

The staff are not welcoming at this school. This is the first school that I haven't put forth the time nor effort to get involved in because of the staff. The teachers seem to pick at the kids, or atleast at my child. I told the asst. Principle that she should tell her teachers to listen to the kids even if what the kids were saying seemed not that important , next.thing I know, both of my sons.teachers called me on speaker phone attacking me! Not a good school! Also, they are not organized at all for the morning drop off!

My child went to this school for two years. Great school! The principal is excellent. My child learned a lot and had fun doing it. Teachers had a good balance between fun and seriousness. The only con that my child mentioned is that in third grade they hardly had recess. I am pleased with the school. This year the school was rated with the highest possible in the state of TX: EXEMPLARY. Way to go Cockrell Cubs!

My daughter was in kindergarten last year - she had the VERY Best teacher - she was strict with the kids in the appropriate way but loved them dearly and treated them all as her own - MRS. V...YOU ROCK! My daughter learned so much and enjoyed every minute of it. Her teacher was very creative and made learning fun!
