This school is substandard to say the least. The office staff really pulls together to try to hide this schools problems rather then fix them. The teachers are under staffed and over worked. Which makes them short tempered at times. There standardized test grades have dropped steadily every year. It's sad really, but this school is going down hill fast. Most parents are very unhappy with this school but don't really know what to do about it. They need to have a clean out of the office staff who seem confused at even the simplest task..

Ed Cody has an incredible their staff. Ms. Johnson & Ms. Castillo, very accommodating to parents & students. Nurse Jana is extraordinary. Great teachers. Unfortunately overwhelmed by the # of students they must teach. Many students have emotional needs, lag developmentally which leads to disciplinary issues. Above average/good students get little any academic attention. Learning Tree Program is horrible. The after-school "teachers" do not have nearly enough training/supervision. They YELL at the children & use fear at times to control them. They require all the students to put their head down on cafeteria tables toward the end of the day. They do not allow parents inside even a minute earlier and often open the doors late. The director of Learning Tree will appear to listen, but the problems continue. The children are not adequately supervised. Homework is not done. Children are corralled into the library/classroom to watch a movie while the "teachers-aid" eat or chit-chat. Children are favored over other children as well. Learning Tree Program at Ed Cody is barely deserving of one-star and is not at all up to the standards that Ms. Johnson requires during school hours.

My children have been going to cody starting mar.98. My special needs child 11 yo, has made extreame progress because of cody. They are very patient and very good with her. My 7yo has been there for 3 yrs, she is doing well and loves her teachers. They always have fun cool things to do , and they always treat my daughter well!

I have had two children go through Cody. Only one bad experience. All teachers, counselors, nurses and principals that I had the opportunity to talk to were incredibly helpful. My daughter required special education services and the school provided me with excellent feedback and she has progressed with great strides.

The administration leaves much to be desired. They placate parents, demolish the child who has health issues to where they can't be made to comply with attendance, class settings etc. The offer of assistance, came in failed words on paper,'leaving the child behind'. Contrary to popular thinking of LNCB program. This administration & staff took an 8 yr old, and forced an issue. Thus the child is now home schooled, and more content with life in general. Esp. when the parents really value the public education departments in these United States. They do not earnestly encourage parental involvement, they distroy interests. Take a really good look at the recent changes in staff. Many left due to coping problems. All is not as it seems at Cody!
