I made a huge mistake sending my child to this school. She can from a public school where she has made all A's and B's to now she is making d's and the teacher had nerve enough to say that my child grades from the previous school was given to her and not earned. This My child went from loving school to now dreading going to school. This will be her last year at the school and I'm looking forward to the end of the school year. The teacher acts like she have no idea what it takes to deal with students.

This school has a lot of room for improvement. The staff does not have enough experience and can not deal well with behavior issues. Instead of working with the child and parents, they would rather suspend and exspell students. They have very limited resources for children with disabilities and will not make accomodations for them.

My boy have both attended Copeland Elementary, School of Excellence Campus. This is this campus third year. I am very proud to see how far this campus has come. They strive to be the best. We have to remember that our public schools recieve more funding than charter school. I choose to send my boys to School of Excellence but I still have to pay taxes for a school that I choose not send my children. At School of Excellence my chilren are known by their name and my boys truly have develope long lasting relationships with their teacher. At David Copeland Elementary the have second moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandma, etc... They take my boys' education personally. Thank you Copeland Campus and Burch Campus for being their for my boys

This is the second year my son has attended. This school is currently over crowded with very small classrooms. The administration is very unorganized and does not follow through on many issues.
