Darnell Cookman Middle School Reviews
The school is poised to become one that will gain in national recognition. It has staffing that is more than adequate, in terms of scholastics, and the additional support staffs are exceptional. I am extremely pleased at seeing my son excel in today's climate of stress factors.
The cultural environment is well balanced at the school and the administrators at the school are very diligent in maintaining this balance. Other schools in the district could learn from processes taking place within this environment.
All issues of everyday school processes (i.e. behavioral, activity, safety, and overall wellbeing) are handled and/or managed very professionally and in a timely matter.
I would recommend the school and look forward to my son continuing. It is not every day that I make a comment like this, but this one is necessary.
One of the best magned middle school in Jacksonville, FL. Teachers are very well experienced helping students to achieve higher goals. Very good decipline. Communication through email, phone is very easy with teachers, office staff as well as asst. principal. Need not to worry about neighbourhood as school itself has very good security.
Over all it seems like a good school. But its in a bad neighborhood,also doesn't seem like it has good safety.
This school is a great school.They have an awesome medical program.
