My son attended this school recently. It was rated 8 out of 10 when we moved to town, so we thought it was a good school. His experience was very negative. What some of the teachers said to him were abusive and those words are still haunting him even after several years. He did have one good teacher in sixth grade, but most of the others teachers were from mediocre to awful. I regretted that we didn't know about The Grove School sooner and was very glad that he found a much better school after leaving Cope. I am not surprised to see its rating goes down to 6 now. I think the school lacks an effective channel for students to express their dissatisfaction about their experiences. In such a wonderful neighborhood with many families who care deeply about education and are very involved with various school and extracurricular activities, Cope has no excuse to be performing at its current level.
Trust me you will make the memories of a lifetime with the teachers and you will definitely with your friends there is no way you won’t have friends at this school. It has the best AVID program on Earth and the education is beyond great! Staff and administrative and Principals are always amazing!
Problems at this school are varied. The most important problems are listed here in order 1) there is a complete lack of sex education (in the whole county) thus, many girls are sexually active with no protection, no guidance, and ALL the attendant problems leading to drop-outs and much worse. Google 'San Bernardino teen pregnancy rates'; the district is in denial, but the statistics don't lie. 2) there is also no school nurse and no feminine protection in the office or bathrooms. 3) there is no way for a student to fail a class, or get extra help or tutoring, short of being 'special education' which is a real shame because failing kids are just promoted, unprepared and lost 4) there are only two guidance counselors, and you can't choose yours, one has a really difficult time with not just guidance but forming coherent sentences. Lastly 5) this school has the strangest scheduling in the history of scheduling, I continue to hope there is a education theory behind changing class times daily, but, it just ends up meaning nobody knows who's coming or going, not the students, not the staff. All that aside, the school's rating is deserved if we grade the entire district on a curve.
this school Is great!! they have a wonderful hands on approach If you are looking for a that could help your kid if they are having a hard time or learn different that's the school take it from me ,I am dyslexic and they sure did help me I am the highest in my grade and I was the top of my class woo go 1213 but anyway I suggest cope
