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 went to school at cooper when i was younger, was there from k-6 and I absolutly loved it. I have been to many schools since i left cooper and none can compair. cooper has an amazing staff, I have never met teachers that I liked more.
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.
