Cooper Middle School Reviews
My son just entered Cooper, and so far the experience has far exceeded our expectations. The teachers do not treat the students like young children; they expect a level of maturity which I think most of the kids appreciate. I agree with the other review that the area/neighborhood has a lot to do wtih the quality of this school. I think this community demands the highest quality teachers, administrators, and facilities. FYI, I overheard my son with another boy, and they were saying that they wished there was a hotel at Cooper so that they could stay there overnight because they like it so much. I'm hoping the experience will continue to be as wonderful through the end of eighth grade.
This school is spectacular. The students are all very bright. Most of the students seem to be focused in school and the teachers are excellent. The area that Cooper is in is definitely a contribution to how great Cooper is.
