Great school in a great district. Teachers are caring. I am pleased with the diversity of this school and feel it is another one of its strengths. Very welcoming neighborhood.

Great extracurricular choices--something for everyone (garden club, art club, ski club, and lots more). That's on the good side. On the bad side are the academics. Yes, the teachers are nice, but the curriculum is sorely deficient. Gotta feel bad knowing these kids are going to be thrown into high ...  Read more

Just moved to the area, the secretary is unpleasant/ uncooperative. I'm unable to get a tour of the school during the day, only after hours. Very disappointed as I pay about $6K in taxes per yr for the schools alone.

My child is a new sixth grader and is loving it so far. He is on a great team with very nice teachers. He is a bright student and comes home telling us he is having fun. He is doing great things and is challenged...can't wait for the opportunity to get his hands on the new Chromebook!

There's little or no communication with parents. Most of the teachers shouldn't be teaching. The administration needs to be fired. They can't do their jobs!

My daughter is in special ed and Cooper is the only school (of 4 attended) that addresses her needs fully. The Principal addressed a bullying issue himself and it stopped immediately. My daughter loves Cooper, and so do we.
