Both my children attend this school. One in kindergarten and one in 1st grade. They are coming home happy and talk non stop about their day. They are enjoying PE and ART class and reading. The pick up and drop off system is great for the students and the neighborhood. The teachers are caring and very hands on with each individual student. I enjoy this school very much.
It's the end of a great school year! First and foremost, the principal Mr. Lee is great! He is so open to new ideas from parents, friendly, understanding and honest. My child's teacher was amazing! In fact all the teachers are top notch educators! They are all so friendly and caring that you can tell that they love your child and wants what's best for them. Their new literacy program (reading and writers workshop) was what set them from all the other schools around apart! The school also participates in Imagine Learning program at school and MyOn reading programs at home. I forgot to mention that they started a GREAT pickup routine on 7th Ave! After school, the kids will sit on the sidewalk and wait for you to drive up to the curb. They open the door for you so you don't have to get out of the car! How perfect is that?! No more finding or double parking for pick up. I cannot stop saying enough good things about McCoppin! I highly recommend this school if you are still debating about it. I'll leave it with this phrase ( very fitting to this school ): It's not what's on the outside, what matters is on the inside.
As the parent of a McCoppin student, I am 100% behind this transition the school has made. The classrooms look better than ever and the students are actually reading critically and finally doing meaningful writing. No more worksheets during reading is wonderful. This new approach has truly inspired my child and she is now excited about reading and writing. I am so glad this school was approached by Kellogg and that the teachers and principal decided to be a part of this grant. It has really transformed this school. I applaud those teachers that have embraced this and are truly making a difference. I also attended a PTO meeting and it was exciting to see people getting involved. Great things are happening at this school.
My daughter has been in Kindergarten ever since, and now she is in the 5th grade at Frank McCoppin. Frank McCoppin Elementary School is a wonderful school where the principal, secretary, and teachers, are all kind and caring. The principal has a great sense of humor, nice, and most of all dedicated his life to this school. I am very happy that this school has a wonderful literacy program where my child go on the "MYON" to read a variety of books that she can choose from fiction books, historical, real life situations, etc. One parent told me that the "MYON" has help his child in the first grade learn to read from listening to the words in highlight and read along. Ms. Read teaching literacy approach, assists and coaches teachers to do many variety of work that involves literacy. For example, the "MYON", Literacy Night, etc. Thank You Principal, Mr. Lee; Ms. Read, teachers, and secretary for all your hard work!
