    "I was skeptical about enrolling my daughter here because of the negative reviews. It seems like this school must have had a huge staffing change? After taking a tour my concerns were gone. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and the school was colorful and clean. My daughter has learned so much here! I'm very happy with her kindergarten teacher Mrs. Kirchhoff. I feel like she is learning and being loved at school everyday. The principal is very kind as well."

    "My children have attended Copper Basin for 4 years now and I have seen the school do nothing but improve the staff and the programs. The schools rating is now an "A" and the principal is up for a major award. My kids teachers have all been friendly and helpful and anytime I have had a concern or question the office staff and teachers have been there to help. They have a great Title 1 program with one of the best teachers I have ever meet (Mrs. Bolton). Also the front office staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful."

    "This school is pathetic. If your children have special needs, they will bully you and then actually force you into going to a worse school like Walker Butte. Joanne Pike is an sad example of a leader and is very unprofessional in the way she handles problems. The principal would make up incidents that took place just to send him home. When I asked to speak to witnesses to the incidents, there were none. The staff did many other things to bully my son to the point to where he hid under tables in the office and would tell me that they were mean to him. I have a second child that is going into kindergarten that they didn't even want to attend there, even though he passed his kindergarten assessment. What did they do to make sure that he didn't go there? They forced his older brother to go to Walker Butte without our permission. How did we find out the district automatically enrolled our son without our permission? Through papers that stated he needed to go to Walker Butte for meet the teacher night! There wasn't even an IEP sent stating the changes that were made. This is the worst school I have ever seen. They are unprofessional, abusive, and admin needs an overhaul."

    "We moved here the beginning of May of 2013, so my daughter went to school only for 4 weeks to finish 2nd grade. Those 4 weeks she was miserable because she was "the new kid". Now in 3rd grade she knows more of the children & has a lot of friends. However the class sizes are unbelievable. In those last 4 weeks of her 2nd grade class she was bullied and every friend she has was not going to continue school at Copper Basin. Almost every single parent I spoke with in the end of the school year for 2013 or over the summer was pulling their child & transferring them elsewhere. The 3rd grade teachers are fantastic & I would not change them for anything. I said I would let her go there for this entire year & see what happens, but at this point I am seriously considering transferring her elsewhere where the teachers can give the students the attention that each of them need."
