My daughter goes to Cockrell currently. The school itself is beautiful, classrooms are very nice and everything is state of the art and education is taken serious in Prosper. I rate this school a three because we have had several instances of rudeness my child has experienced with the staff. For example, my daughter had chicken nuggets one day at school and there were several ketchup packets on the table. As my child reached for a ketchup packet, an employee reached for it out of her hand and told her ketchup is not on the menu. She thought the lady was joking, but the lady just walked away with the ketchup. Not a big deal, but really?? The staff overall is a bit "militant" with the kids and I don't think it's hardly necessary. I would also like to see a bit more diversity with the teachers at the school. It appears as though the leadership or those responsible for hiring are not open to diversity. I will likely consider private school or if possible another school in the district next year.
Fantastic school....The standard is high in Prosper ISD and it shows in every aspect of the schools.We have been beyond pleased with Cockrell....
I am a parent of five, two of which attended Cockrell in its first year. We are very happy here! We are new to Prosper after having a bad experience in a neighboring school district. My children's teachers were amazing. There were a couple of issues I had that I brought to the teachers and also something I brought to the principal early in the year. Issues immediately corrected. I felt like my opinion truly mattered. I never felt this way in our old school. My husband and I have been VERY impressed. I also love the amount of parent involvement here. Parents are made to feel so welcome here at anytime, whether its volunteering or attending an assembly or party. We are invited to everything! This school is also awesome at recognizing the children's accomplishments and making them feel special. There are lots of special awards and assemblies to honor them. I also just love the spirit here-lots of fun. The P.E. coaches are awesome and the music, Spanish, art and computer programs are first rate. I have no complaints here! I am so happy we moved to Prosper and that my kids attend Cynthia A Cockrell Elementary. I wish we had moved here sooner!
Cockrell Elementary opened this school year (2012-2013) and is already honoring Prosper ISD's high standards in education. We are proud to be a part of this school system.
