My child has attended this school for the last 3 years. She has had an amazing experience. The teaching techniques incorporate several different learning styles and they keep the students engaged while learning. We have several neighbors who also have had amazing experiences here. We highly recommend ...  Read more

My child was bullied mercilessly and the child who bullied him was given a very public award for basically adhering to the golden rule. What a joke and slap in the face at the same time. The principal is incompetent and throws out a lot of jargon to cover up her biases. We went to the school because ...  Read more

Cory has gone downhill over the past two years. Part of it is due to the lack of funding for para professionals in the classroom by DPS and partly because the focus has become bridging the gap rather than helping all grow. A lot of the GT kids leave by 4th grade because they need to be challenged. ...  Read more

Cory is an awesome school. I'm in 5th grade and have had an amazing time there since I arrived in the 1st grade. The staff members are great and I love my teacher and class, they are the best! I wake up every morning not being able to wait to go to school. I have such a fun time there while knowing that ...  Read more

We had a horrible experience at Cory. We moved there for the HGT program, and found it to be non-existent. The HGT coordinator never returned a single call or email, and I never saw her in person, despite countless attempts. And I also never saw my child's Advanced Learning Plan, and I'm certain it ...  Read more

I have two fairly difficult children (for different reasons.) We have been pleased with the various interventions and the efforts to insure that parents and teachers are on the same team. They definately have not fallen through the cracks. We are still in the middle of it, but on balance have been very ...  Read more

I've had children at Cory for four years now and our experience has been outstanding. It is a wonderful community and the staff there (teachers and paras) are great. They certainly emphasize/focus on academics, while also considering the whole child. Could not be happier.

Large class sizes, but that's par fot he course with DPS. Some teachers are good, others not so much. It's a crap shoot. Would reccomend keeping a close eye on every step of your kids education at this school.

There's a lot of good parent involvement. But it's still DPS, so you can expect large class sizes and spotty teacher performance. One of my boys excelled here, but the other slipped through the cracks with reading and I'm pretty sure the teacher was more concerned about her upcoming retirement to care.

I have had two children complete Cory with two different principals. I couldn't recommend Cory any more highly. The teachers, principals and staff are all extremely child-oriented and the education they provide is excellent. My daughter has special needs as well as being highly gifted and the school ...  Read more
