    As with anywhere you go there are going to be some bad apples in the basket but overall I am pleased with Cooleemee. The teachers strive to have that one on one relationship with the children. I am thoroughly impressed that the principal can remember each student's name. I have had my own ups and downs in opinions with the Davie County schools but all in all this school works hard with what it has to work with. Parental involvement is key to making any school work well.

    I rated the school back in June 2004 (see post below). At that time I couldn't have been more pleased. I also enjoyed the following few years when Ms. Morrison was our principal. I loved this school so much that I joined the PTA and became the President. We enjoyed many successes under the leadership of the past Principal. Things have dramatically changed this year under different leadership. We are currently working to move our 2nd daughter to another nearby public elementary school. We are hoping that the superintendent will allow this change. The intense and negative environment is causing anxiety for my child and we must seek a change (even if it means finding a private school).

    We have been at Cooleemee for three years and find it to be the best school in the area. We came from a private school and were very nervous about attending a public school. We could not be more pleased. We feel that Mr. Campbell (Principal)provides the strong leadership and support the staff at Cooleemee. The teachers and staff strive to help every child be successful.

    Well this is my first year with Cooleemee Elementary. We are just going into the fourth day of Kindergarten. My son and I are very impressed with the way the staff has made this new transition easier on us over a period of time. I enjoyed getting prepared for this year and Im glad they didnt just 'Throw it on us' at one time. They did it over a period of time starting at the early part of this year...I am looking forward to my son's future here at Cooleemee...Keep up the good work Cooleemee!
