Worst experience EVER!!! I have never had so many problems with a school. I have never heard so many "I can't", "we don't have time for that”. Never in my life had I experienced such frustrating school staff. The staff including the principal are SO UNPROGESSIONAL. I have been looking for places to move so my child does not have to suffer thru another year at this school.
My son is in the 5th grade now which is the last year one can attend to Johnnie Cochran School. It is an excellent school. It's hard to part ways when this school has strive academic excellence. It also molded the kids into a very good students. I can't say nothing but all good words about this school. Excellent teachers, principal and administrator.
good curriculum, excellent teachers, good rapport with students and excellent after care programs with the local YWCA
My child is currently in the 4th grade at Johnnie L Cochran Jr. Academy. My child has attended this school since being in kindergarten. The first two years I raved about this school. However the last three years I'm sad to admit that I cannot. First I don't think that the principal is kept abreast on what's going on in the classroom. I fought to keep my child in this school due to my child having a interest in the law. The legal studies class is a joke. The children are taught social studies not legal studies. You would think the children would know the ins and outs of the courtroom having legal studies for four years. Instead they watch movies every week. Keep in mind they only have legal studies once a week. Last year I was so upset my child saw 12 Years of Slave in the 3rd grade. This was no way deemed appropriate for a 8/9 year old. The principal doesn't have a clue as to what's going on. Mr. Jacobs is very hard to approach.
