Robert C. Cooley Middle School Reviews
Well I am in student goverment and in 8th grade this year and love the school to death. Its not just because I have been in leadership ever since 6th grade but I enjoy all of the acctivities we put on and the spirt the school has. There are many wonderful teachers that I will remember, and have 100% effected me, and I will carry the things that they have tought me my entire life.
My son is currently a sixth grader at Cooley. As of today, I would give this school very high marks. The students are made responsible for not completing homework, for not following directions, and for their actions. My son says it is run like the military. Well, maybe that's what many of our children need nowadays since they are not being taught discipline, respect for others, or respect for themselves at home. The teachers give the students ample help if they do not understand the subjects. The students also enjoy fun days or social events so there is no excuse that the kids are bored. The school is preparing them for their futures whether or not the kids understand it at this stage of life.
Great school, safe and wonderful GATE program!
