    Organic lunches at this school are delivered by Tiny Meals. This is a great school and they accept organic school lunches made by Tiny-Meals.com. Cooper City Elementary is a small school with 790 students and a caring staff.

    Coming from another country I have to say Cooper City Elementary is very good! sometimes parent-teacher communication is non- existent but I think that is a norm in a US public school. Not knowing exactly what to expect this our first year was difficult. Sometimes we did not acknowledge that parents can join children to certain activities and found no one to tell us in advance that parents were allowed we know is difficult but coming from a private out of the US school it was easier to communicate with teachers even in higher grades but overall the school is very good. Thank you

    Cooper City Elementary School--- Not there if you really need them. The school is more worried about their reputation than helping the children in it.

    My 5 children went to Cooper City elementary in the 80s and 90s and now my grandchildren attend there. They definitely cater to the smarter children while those who need a little extra help or time to understand certain subjects get left behind. The ESE program needs improvement and some of the teachers do little to help instill confidence in those children who need it most. I understand that budget cuts may be blamed for some of the problems but teachers and staff should try concentrating more on the shy quiet kids who need a little extra help. The smart kids will always do well.

    My daughter has been at the school for 5 years. She is in 4th grade moving to 5th. We love the school and the staff. All of her teachers have been great and easy to communicate with. This year she had a new teacher to the school Miss Rodgers. She is excellent. My daughter really likes her and she was fast to answer any of my concerns. The office staff is very helpful. We have used the aftercare for the past 4 years and my daughter is very happy there. Often times telling me to come later to pick her up.

    I am very disapointed with this school most of the staff are rude and careless. My dauther has been bullied by the "popular girls" and after repeated visits with the teacher nothing has been done. it is obvious that the teacher is indiferent to my daughter and the girls sence this so they try to hurt her as much as they can by taking her stuff and they know they won't be reprehended. They said nothing can be done which is okay but at least they should fake that a conversation will take place prohibiting this kind of behavior but they didn't even bother. I was screamed at because my daughter had a phone that she was't supposed to have. Instead of them maybe pretending to care or work something out? But again that would be too much to ask from the faculty at this school.

    My son has been a student of Cooper City Elementary for 5 years (he is currently in 4th grade; has been attending since Kindergarten). One of the reasons we moved to Cooper CIty was for the schools in the town. Let me just say that we could not have asked for a better school for our son. The Teachers and staff go above and beyond for the welfare of our son. Any child would be lucky to attend this school.

    The school restored all specials this year Art Music PE and Media. Students visit computer lab weekly. All classes are meeting class size. Our family is happy to be a Cub!

    Phenomenal school! Administration does a wonderful job of keeping parents informed. Teachers are doing great at transitioning to Common Core Standards. My children are challenged and we are so happy!

    This school has suffered from cut backs. There is no PE no art and no creativity in the curriculum. Science is taught by reading rather than hands on. Teaching to the FCAT and other testing is the focus. I have had one or more kids in this school since 1998 and I have witnessed its decline. Students are no longer taught to be creative thinkers. They are taught to pass standardized tests.

    I have been very sad to see the specials go. There was a great art program computer lab teacher and science program which are all gone now. The students are only receiving core classes and it is impacting their balance.

    There are some aspects of this school that are very good but if you want your child to have fun learning incorporated into their school year this is not the school for you. Everything in this school is centered around the FCAT's. That is the only concern. Parent involvement is high but if you volunteer expect harassment from the teachers and no support. Many teachers are rude and not willing to work with the parents. Many people love this school but I had a lot of difficulty with many aspects of it. I want my children to love school and have an exciting education and that is not the case here. There are also many problems with bullying.

    I was highly disappointed with this school. My daugther behavior stared to deteriorate everyday. No personal care from teachers. Bullying. I hate it. I moved her from there in the middle of the first year. The best I could have done! Now we both are happy.
