Dr. Martha Cohen School opened its doors on March 13, 2017 to serve the communities of New Brighton and Copperfield. We started with a population of 370 in our inaugural year, we grew by over 200 for the 2017-18 school year, and for the 2018-19 school year we are expecting to grow by another 100 students, to about 760. 

We are the Chimeras - Our mantra is Courage, Perseverance and Wisdom. We believe that all children can learn and that it is our role to find ways to ensure their success.

It is the nature of (people) man to rise to greatness, if greatness is expected of (them) him. 

- John Steinbeck

We believe education is a shared responsibility and that home and school must work together in order for children to be successful. Our commitment is to our students and their families. We we will always try to do our best when it comes to the development of your children.
