Robert G Cole is located on a military base and is 3A which means there is not a huge influx of students every year. The school is small and is very family friendly. I play sports and the athletic program here is held to the highest standard it is not just a program I am in it is a lifestyle I up hold. This school is a high school and middle school combined and to some that may sound annoying but it is actually great my little sister is in 6th grade and I get to see her frequently in passing periods. We take pride in the beauty of our campus and our things, we don't walk through the grass because it makes our school look trashy and warn down and it is also rude to our hard working custodians. We all do our part here at Cole to keep it a beautiful place inside and out.The cougar life is the best life, all students here are all in the cougar way!

The past three years that I have attended this school have been very positive. As a student, I have been given so many opportunities in exploring technology, trying sports, and attending camps. Because the school is so small, it is very easy to become close to the teachers and staff- something I value so much! One of the downsides is the limited number of courses offered. This is again due to having a small school. I have always felt safe and comfortable in my school. The unique culture of the students here has been noted by every single one of my teachers. The students at Cole are praised for our excellent behavior and reputation as well as community involvement. I am very proud to have been a part of Cole High School!
I have been at this school since the 6th grade. Although not perfect, I wouldn't go to any other school. Many of the classes I took were small, with only at most 20 or so students. This means more one-on-one time with the teacher. Through this school, I was introduced to the Pre-Freshman Engineering Program, which helped me learn critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, take on engineering projects, learn about jobs in the STEM field, and eventually take a summer college course at the University of Texas at San Antonio. My teachers helped me succeed and are very nice and helpful.

However, there are a few problems with this school. After middle school, we almost never take class field trips. Also, some teachers were lenient and didn't challenge students. All in all, this is a very good school.
