    "This school is just alright in my opinion, theres more to a school than test scores, which frankly your gonna have decent scores here due to its location. There are a few bright stars here but over all the school has a very private feel to it, sometimes i think they forget this is a public school. Lots of in your face favoritism here from the teachers and office staff. I watched in the office one morning loads of kids coming in late and the office staff literally picking off certain kids for tardy slips and letting the others that walked in behind go right on by to class. They should have all been lined up for tardy slips! Silly me, I forgot it depends who you are at this school. I was pleased when new leadership was announced, I thought the previous principal was a bit full of himself. I hope the new principal does not get bullied by some of these parents, although when I got a slip about picking teachers next year, I am starting to think "same old, same, old". Why would a principal turn this into a popularity contest among teachers. Its ludicrous! Please, this has nothing to do with teaching styles and everything to do with who the parents are friends with."

    "A few weeks ago in a 4th grade class a laptop came up missing after a math class. Mrs. C and Mrs. D flipped their lids. They called the principal to help search the kids desks and backpacks. The children were told that if it wasn't found, there would be no electronics allowed to be brought to school by the children. Guess what? Mrs. C had put the laptop in a basket and had found it a few days later!!!! Do you think there where any apologies given to the kids by Mrs. C, Mrs. D, and the principal? H#$% no!!!!"

    "Copper Canyon went thru a big change when our beloved Principal left suddenly. We are a close community and the change left us all a little bewildered. The start of school year brought Mr. Shappee, our new principal, and with that some changes to our routines. The kids have adjusted well to the changes, and accepted them! A handful of parents are still struggling to accept the new changes, and have chosen to stand on their principles. The majority of the parents have embraced the changes, and are very supportive of the PTA and staff, which ultimately supports all the kids at CCES. Mr. Shappee has been a wonderful addition to our school. He really does have the best interest of the students and staff in mind. The staff is as warm to you as you are to them. I know they have struggled with the negativity from some of the parents, and hope that they know we support them, and appreciate their dedication to making our school a success! Thank you CCES staff."

    "A lot has changed in the past year at Copper Canyon, but the change is mostly good. The parents are now required to sign in at the front office to enter the school. Some parents are very upset about their inability to come into the school through a side door and roam the halls freely. These parents miss being able to chat with their friends in halls and peeking in on their children through the window in the doors. However, my children feel much more secure now that all the doors are locked. The teachers, staff and aides are extremely friendly and you can see how much they adore the children. The only unhappiness I have seen by the staff is when certain parents complain for the umpteenth time to them about locked doors and the library being closed before school. I can see how frustrating it is to have to listen to the same negativity over and over. Copper Canyon is a wonderful school. My children love the teachers, staff and principal. The parents are still extremely involved and while we have a new principal, he cares just as much as our previous one. All that matters to me is that my kids are happy, and they love this school!"

    "Our family is very happy and impressed with Copper Canyon in many ways. The parent involvement is great and it makes a big difference in class and other activities. The teachers are able to focus on the most important parts of teaching. The principal and staff are loved by kids and parents. They get to know the families personally, are very accessible and strive to meet the needs of each child individually. The principal is loved by the kids and when needed disciplines with respect instead of fear. The families at Copper Canyon are child focused and I love the fact that my kids are surrounded by other kids that are happy, well behaved, respectful kids. They are exposed to great role models everyday which makes parenting them that much easier."
