    My son has had a wonderful experience at AG Cox! He has been challenged academically but offered support when needed. The faculty really work together for all students. Any time I have needed to make contact with either a teacher or principal I have had prompt feedback. I feel like everyone there cares about my student and would do anything they could to help him be successful.

    This school has really gone down hill with it's current administration. To keep face and in the good graces of the county administration they will not address the behavior of even the worst of repeating offenders. Teachers that have been there for years are unhappy and I have been to by a few of them that they are retiring early or leaving.

    As a seventh grade student at A.G. Coa Middle School I have to say it nis a great school. Of course it has a few problems but what school doesn't. A.G. Cox could have better food in the cafeteria and maybe more time in camp classes but that's ok because every other school in pitt county has the same food that we do and the same amount of time in camp classes. The overall picture is that A.G. Cox Middle School is a great school with great teachers. I love A.G. Cox Jessy Pinner
