Mrs. Sellstrom has made some wonderful changes at Covington. My youngest child finishes up at Covington this year. My older son went to the school also. The Administration and Faculty are wonderful. I'm going to miss Covington!!!!

What a great school, kids really seem to like the teachers and the programs offered at this school. Front office staff is always polite to me and seem to know there stuff. Teachers have been open to communication from me as a parent and have helped to get me books, forms and assistance when I have needed ...  Read more

I couldn't be happier with our choice to transfer to Covington; I almost regret we didn't come sooner. We've not experienced one real disappointment, from interactions with office staff, counselors, teachers, principal and vice-principals to feeling welcomed to participate as a parent volunteer as much ...  Read more

Covington is a great school. The new principal and teachers have gone above and beyond to bring the year to a close in a positive way. The PTA has really changed and as has sponsored some new fun events and scheduled new programs for the school next year. My kids are sad they won't be there next year. ...  Read more

This school has come a long way in recent years. It has suffered from bad attitudes and sluggishness; too many teachers and staff (not all) have minimized their personal accountability and have been cutting corners. Naturally, some of these characteristics have carried over to the students. However, ...  Read more

Over the last 8 years I had 3 children attend Covington and I saw how the teachers and principals created a school culture of creativity and caring. And then in my last 2 years I saw how the Fine Arts classes, especially Theater, exploded. I am so lucky my daughter had been a part of the Theater, Band, ...  Read more

This is a fantastic school. From a few of the reviews below it appears parents mad about dress code (which your child, adult will follow one for the rest of their lives) and then throwing blame on school. Take reviews with a grain of salt. Most people who write reviews do so when they are mad no when ...  Read more

This school is horrible. My daughter was so excited to start middle school and now she hates going to school. She is an honor student and behaves in class so she is mercilessly picked on every day. The other reviews were spot on about administration. They are more worried about the over bearing dress ...  Read more

This is a school where discipline takes priority over grades. The administration staff are unnecessarily rigid and quick to punish harshly. You are lucky if you get a phone call from an assistant principal, I did not once see or speak to the principal dispite my attempts and you will never have communications ...  Read more
