This school is average at best. Staff and faculty are as cold as ice. Located right off a main road it has the feel of a high school and the number of students to back that statement. Not somewhere I would be happy to boast my child goes here. We live in the district so are basically forced to go here as we missed the deadline for School Choice due to military relocation. Parents are not allowed to drop off their children inside the building. I would not recommend this school to military families or newcomers to San Antonio. It's horrible and we are only two days in. If you are used to high quality education this school is not for you.
We think Coker Elementary School is wonderful; The teachers are great, friendly and welcoming. The school itself is not too big, it has kind of a cozy feel compared to other schools and it seems lots of people know our son by name while he's not the kind of child that sceams attention. Our son likes it at Coker, he enjoys going to school which is pretty important.
Coker is a fantastic public school. We transfered in from a private school 2 years ago and could not be happier. The teachers and school administration have high values and always go the extra mile. Parent involvement is unbelievable. I would not want to send my kids anywhere else.
I have found the teachers in the lower grades to be unprofessional and downright childish. We had and issue with parking and crosswalk safety and the teachers acted like preschoolers. We had our child in private school and switched to public. Big mistake!
My child has severe food allergies and the school has been excellent in accomodating him. He loves being there and has not had a single reaction. The teachers and staff that we've worked with are great.
The teachers at Coker have all been encouraging and kind to my son. He has attended this school from 2nd grade through 5th grade. My only complaint is the lack of extracurricular programs and there doesn't seem to be any opportunities for a child with special skills in one area to forge ahead.
