    I know this school must be excellent as my daughter Becky Horner just became an ESOL teacher there today.

    I love this school! I have four kids that attend it and with very few exceptions the teachers are fabulous. The school is also always holding social activities for the kids and it feels like you are a part of a community. The two best things about this school are the secretaries who are always so pleasant and helpful and the Ombusmen who will do anything she can to help you if you have a problem.

    Sois Cohen is an OK school. I think the teacher and administration overall care however I think WE as parents need to request the School District make some changes to the cirriculum!! I think the school is very diverse (which is a wonderful thing)! I am an active parent and my son really enjoys going there with the exception of telling me he isn't being challenged enough but again that is not the fault of his teacher..because they are teaching what's required I think WE (parents) need to REQUIRE more be taught to our children

    Solomon Solis-Cohen Is an excellent school he teachers and administration are actively involved in the educational development of their students. The teachers go above and beyond and I feel that they should be recognized and rewarded. I removed my child from a private school in the philadelphia area and due to this I was quite relcutant to place my child in the public school system. I'm glad I made this decision. I love this school
