Cooper Elementary School Reviews
By a grandparent, Feb. 25, 2014
Outstanding teachers, Principal, and staff! My 5-year-old grandson who is in kindergarten and 7-year-old granddaughter are excelling academically and socially because they are immersed in an environment of consistent encouragement, awards, rewards, and commendations that makes them want to do their best. I volunteer once a week for both of their teachers, and am infatuated with the interaction between the students and their teacher as well as with each other. Mrs. Erickson and Mrs. Haines are our teachers and they are truly amazing.
All the right stuff
I am grandmother to two broncos - my grandson is in kindergarten and granddaughter is in 2nd grade. This is a unique school that is getting it right despite common core. As one teacher put it, "It is just the new term for reading, writing and arithmetic."It is refreshing to once again find teachers who are there out of dedication to their calling not just do a job. I volunteer in both classrooms once a week and I am truly amazed at what these teachers accomplish. Of course, it all starts at the top and the happy, loving, and caring environment is a reflection of the principal and his staff. Of particular interest to me is how hard they work to keep all of the students where they need to be while engendering good self-esteem in even the slower developed learners. The way children are treated in grade school sets the stage upon which the rest of their lives will be built. I always leave Cooper feeling that Bella Vista children, and particularly my grandchildren, are truly blessed to have such a wonderful start in life.
I just saw the weather on KNWA Chanel 9, showing the roof-top view of the thunder-storm. I am dis-appointed to see the American flag flying during such inclement weather conditions at Cooper Elementary School.
I have visited the school and attended the pre-opening review, and am quite pleased to have such a beautiful building in Bella Vista.
