Amount of homework: Not enough
July 14, 2015
My child may be advanced, but she goes through her homework and her extra work and still wants more to do. We have purchased several workbooks to do on our own time along with the homework.

They do a great job listening to my student and make her feel like she can open up and talk as needed there.

I love that my daughter attended here. It is by far the best school in the area, and I have done my research. My daughter was supposed to go to a different school and I quickly transferred her here. The teachers offer open and honest communication and do a great job keeping you informed!

Teacher effectiveness: Effective
July 14, 2015
I think the teachers here are great. They make sure all important mail comes home with students in a mail folder once a week. They keep parents very well informed. The teachers are outgoing and friendly. The principal always has time to listen when you have a concern. My daughter left kindergarten well above the standards that are required. The teachers go above and beyond to make sure your students are educated and safe.

Cooper elementary school has terrible communication skills & slides things under the carpet... Like when my daughter was violated & had her skirt looked up under by a boy ! Nothing was done because everyone, including principal Williams, assumed everyone else took care of it:( shame on them!

I have had two children at Cooper Elementary and they have both had wonderful experiences. The teaching staff is excellent, works well together and truly cares about the students. I have seen teachers take time to attend students' sporting events on Saturdays, have book discussions on weekends, etc. The administrations is caring and available to both the students and parents. Cooper is one of the best elementary schools in Spokane.

The principal is a great leader. He spends a lot of time out in the halls and on the playground building relationships w/the students. The self manager program is excellent! The teachers and staff have been there for years some for more than 20! The crisis response is very organized and is practiced regularly. I wouldn't have my kids anywhere else!

A school is a school. However great teachers make a school more. Cooper has outstanding teachers that connect and make learning fresh and new. Students are treated with respect and their positive behavior program, Self-Managers, helps them achieve it. A highly recommended place for kids to learn.
