Principal’s Welcome

JenniferHarrisAs the Proud Principal of the Cory Cougars, I welcome you to our website and invite you to take a “sneak peek” into our school.

We have many unique programs to offer all of our students which you can find under the Academics section. We have historically been a high-performing school and attribute our “Blue” status to our involved parents and family members as well as our veteran staff. As you peruse our website, I encourage you to click on the Cory Team tab and read our team’s biographies (you can get their biography by clicking on their name).

The majority of our staff is trained in educating the Gifted Child, including the students who have been identified as Highly Gifted & Talented (HGT).  Cory is currently a HGT magnet site that utilizes the “integrated model” approach.  More information can be found on the tab that is listed above or by clicking HERE.
