Johnnie L. Cochran Junior Academy Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

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 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.

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.

MY SON HAS BEEN APART OF THE COCHRAN FAMILY SINCE FIRST GRADE AND WILL BE STARTING THE FOURTH GRADE IN THE FALL OF 2011. THE TEACHERS ARE GREAT AS WELL AS THE AFTERSCHOOL STAFF. THERE IS NO BULLYING AND KIDS HAVE A PLACE WHERE THEY CAN FOCUS ON SCHOOL WORK AND BUILD FRIENDSHIPS AS WELL. IT SADDENS ME THAT MY DAUGHTER WHO WILL BE ATTENDING KINDERGARTEN THIS YEAR WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND DUE TO HAVING TO ATTEND HER RESIDENT ARE SCHOOL. I READ THE REPORTS ON THE SCHOOL SHE WILL BE ATTENDING AND I MUST SAY I WILL BE FIGHTING TO GET HER IN JOHNNIE COCHRAN WITH HER BROTHER BECAUSE HE HAS LEARNED ALOT AND IS CONTINUING TO LEARN EACH DAY. ALTHOUGH THE PREVIOUS PRINCIPLE MOVED ON TO ANOTHER GREAT POSITION YOU CAN'T TELL THAT THE NEW PRINCIPLE HAS MISSED A BEAT BECAUSE ITS STILL ORDER AS USUAL IN THE SCHOOL. THIS IS A GREAT SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
