    It's a great school the teachers are dedicated to the students and the staff is so wonderful. I went to this school as a kid and had a wonderful time there and now my daughter goes there and loves going to school everyday!!

    I do not like this school . I feel so trapped .What can I do to help my son learn if they dont and I cant send him to another school becuase I do not have transportation? Please someone help theese kids learn and tell the teachers to stop being mean to the kids 'THEY ARE JUST KIDS' And they are there for you to be an example not to be afraid to talk or be themselves Do not get me wrong they do have some great teachers but the mean ones over ride the nice ones. I pray the Lord be with this school and thoose children .

    Though this school doesn't necessarily have an overabundance of parent involvement which is very critical to the success of the children the teachers at Cox go above and beyond their responsibilities as teachers. They love what they do as well as the children they work with every day. Passionate caring teachers should be considered an asset to any school! I am proud to say that I attended Cox as a child. Today both my niece and nephew attend Cox and they love it as well!
