    I had two go through this school. The first one always was made to feel like there was something wrong with her and us. We worked very hard but never quite felt supported. Equally bad experience with number 2. They like everyone to think its the best school in the state but actually alot of cliques and bullying.

    I sent my children to this school. I don't like the result. It was a great school under principal Militello.

    im currently a 7th grader now but i moved here after 5th grade and this school makes everyone feel safe and welcome.its hard to be there on the first day because you get lost or you dont know anyone but you make friends fast on the first day.i highly think you should send your kids to cole because they do everything they can just to help you out trust me! its the best school in the district not even going to lie i thought my old school was better but its really not! cole is the best school so send your kids here and no where else and you will love the results i promise you that!

    The only honors' classes offered are 7th grade and 8th grade accelerated math course. The 8th grade accelerated math course is a regular Algebra 1 course. Students are placed to two teams per grade for easy administration. There is an extraordinary amount of tutors hired by the parents in this community which has inflated the real capabilities of the system.

    Horrible response time from teachers/administration. Very unoganized!! Possible for kids to slip through if the administration doesn't think they are worth helping. This school tends to cover up incidents so you will never know if anything bad happens to your child!!!

    Hello I am a currently attending Cole Middle School right now. Cole is a very good school mostly all teachers are nice and and the extracarricular activities are great! If you were thinking about enrolling your child to Cole it is a very good idea. We are the BEST of the BEST! 'EAST IS BEAST!

    I attend this school currently and it is definitley of of the bet middle schools in the state if not the best. There are not many cilques and new students blend in fast and within a month its like they've been there forever. The color team program is organized and there are many amazing after-school activities to participate. There are high expectations but not difficult to achieve and the teachers are very understanding and kind. GO COLE LANCERS!

    I attend this school right now and all I can say is WOW! I have been in this school my entire middle school career and it has been a blast! Yes the teachers do expect a lot from you and set high standards but it's nothing unattainable as I am an honor student. The students are extremely friendly and the different programs offered are fantastic especially the new one called C2 (C squared). It's a great way to get close to people you may not have been friends with before. The teachers and staff at Cole always have fun new ideas and raffles to enter with fun and crazy things! The Cole Mile is coming up again and I can't wait for another fun day! I highly suggest sending your children here!

    I attend this school currently and I think it's great. I moved from Barrington public schools last year and I do think they compare at the same if not Cole is a little better. GO COLE!

    I have atteneded cole for both 7th and 8th. I personally think its the best in the state. The expectations from the teachers are set high but nothing that we cant handle. If you move to EG I highly seguest sending them to cole because all the kids in both 7th and 8th are really nice and so are the teacher. There is no way that anyone wont fit in.

    I have attended Cole for both seventh and eighth grade and it is the best school that I have ever been to! It is an enviting and comfortable environment that encourages learning. The teachers are fast paced and absolutely love what they do. The standards are higher than in other schools in the state and children are expected to meet them. Kids who are having dificulties can see their teachers before or after school for extra help but the resposiblity for comming is given to the child. There are many fun after school activities and sports programs (both intramural and varsity) that kids are encouraged to participate in. Many after school activities are award winning. The mock trial team has won compitition at the state level for the past five years! I would encourage any parent to send their child to Cole. You wont regret it!
