    I worked here as a student a few years ago and the teacher I worked with abused me. I never reported it but I know he at least did some of the things he did to me to another college student worker at the school I went to last year and she was braver than me she reported it and they fired her. She won't talk about it. I hope he didn't destroy her life like he did mine. I have finally gotten my life back and I am going back to school. The principals (they have had a few) and district haven't dealt with it. I wouldn't put my kid here ever until they get rid of monsters like that.

    Hidden Gem**** Dr. William Cobb elementary is a school on the rise. If you're interested in getting your children into a school that has a very diversified staff and student base this is the school for you. Where this school differentiates from other schools in the district is it's amazing staff run programs. 1. Gifted program for advanced learners 2. Special ed/speech program integrated seamlessly into the curriculum 3. there is even a new program starting at the kindergarten level next year where all incoming K students will have a college fund started for them. I am a parent of a gifted first grader and a special needs kindergarten student so am able to see both sides of the coin and this school definitely has a lot to offer both of them and everyone else in-between. The school also just got approved for a major renovation which is huge.

    My son is in Mr. Becker's Kindergarten class and absolutely loves it! He was evaluated in preschool and I was told he would need an iep and possible special ed. Mr. Becker has fun play integrated academic learning tools that have worked wonders and now my son is reading and writing and loving school. He is testing average to above average on the standardized tests the school counselor has worked with my son and after seeing his obvious academic success we all agree he doesn't seem to need any special ed.. and to me this speaks volumes about how great this school is!

    We have recently had our son start at William Cobb and they have done everything to help him as he has speech problems the principle amazing !! From day 1 she has had the ball rolling and the teachers and support staff also have their great part to play. I am truly excited for the future of our son at Dr William Cobb.

    I would like to let everyone in on a little known secert.Dr william cobb is a great school. We have a principal that is crazy excited about the 2006/2007 school year parents that are ready to work students that are ready to learn.In the past we have had problems with discipline but we are really getting a handle on it. Making school a safe place.

    My daughter who at the time of this writing has attended Dr. Cobb since she was in Kindergarten. My daughter is a high achiever and continued to thrive at Dr. Cobb. I credit the staff there.. former teachers of hers the previous principal of the school Mrs. Audap who sadly has now recently retired to the Parent Liaison other school staff and the staffs of the before and after school program. Equally as sad is my daughter's departure to the school as we now bid farewell to Cobb so she can attend a school closer to home. While I don't know what the future Cobb will look like with the integration of schools because of school closures and the new principal whom I have not met I can rest assure those contemplating on sending their children to Cobb that the staff that I have worked with are ones who are exemplary!
