    I appreciate that the school is now a "Blue Ribbon" school and some of the teachers are such hard workers. I particularly cannot understand why the principal is such a loud obnoxious woman. Whenever she speaks you can hear her all the way down the corridor and I have seen her chastise workers at the school in the presence of students other teachers and parents. Which in my opinion is very unprofessional. The securities are always texting or on the phone many days I can just walk up into the school. My face is probably familiar but do they really know me I am appalled by the work of the school safety officers. As for homework I think that it should be more intense (and I am a parent that sits down with my child)

    I am not to pleased with this school. I feel the homework that is given to the first graders are too easy. My child was doing that kind of work in pre-k. The only thing I am ok with is the quick rsponses i get when theirs a conflict between students and how matters are solved in the end. Other than that this school is alright.

    The late William L. Cooper is sorely missed. His legacy lives on in every student's life he touched. We love you Mr. Cooper.

    This is a very low grade school. Some of the teachers try very hard with what they have to work with but it is just not enough. There is little to no parent involement. The princple is just not in touch with the childern and parents. She is at times clueless to the needs of the childern. This school needs a complete overhault but the really sad part it is one of the better schools in district 16. With all that said they still do have some good after-school programs but with lack of staff some childern fall thru the cracks. This school needs help and no-child-left-behind program is not the answer. But the do needs some kind of help....
