Frank W. Cox has been an excellent fit for my children. The staff of teachers and counselors have all gone above and beyond. I have children with various needs from IEP to AP and the school has more than met all my expectations.

With 4 years of having my AA/F child going here, I feel so blessed to be a part of the Cox High program.

I am a military spouse who has had my children in schools all across the United States. Cox High School is by far the safest school that my child has ever attended.
