    Have you ever walked into a place and felt so good that you say to yourself 'Wow'? That's the feeling you get the minute you step into this wonderful campus. Everybody from the Principal down are just wonderful. The quality of the programs is great my son is reading above grade level and he loves it! The offer music art computers and many extracurricular activities. The opportunities for parents to get involved are available throuhgout the year including school- and district-initiated activities like Parent University Booster Club Legislative Committee etc. I would recommend this school to anybody.

    Glad to see a new principal coming. This is a school within a school and I'm sick of having different rules between the 2 schools and making things confusing for parents with kids under both principals. Maybe this principal will work With the middle school principal to make families feel like its 1 school not 2. It's all on the same campus so why can't you do things together?

    I'm very excited to have my children at Cordova Primary. The teachers are caring and very interested in helping the children learn. This is a no nonsense school where academics are stressed and implemented in a fun environment.
