Discover This School

Frank McCoppin Elementary School is a multi-award winning high achieving school in the Inner Richmond District. We have completely implemented the Comprehensive Approach to Literacy. This proven successful educational strategies has been incorporated into other curriculum subjects as well.

We believe equity and social justice are achieved when all students are taught with deep attention to their specific needs. We deliver this individualized approach through our diverse support staff of a literacy coach, a speech clinician, a school psychologist, a social worker, an RSP teacher with para and a parent liason / tutor.

The current principal has been at McCoppin for over 15 years. He has the vision energy and knowledge to continue to lead and provide all students with the education they deserve. He is devoted to forward thinking and has an open mindset to embrace positive change.

We foster intellectual curiosity and connect with students' interests and daily experiences in a safe, positive, welcoming, inclusive, and respectful learning environment. We provide differentiated instruction to meet student needs.

We believe that increasing communication and involvement with students' families will help us succeed in our promises to our students and their families.
McCoppin School has been completely renovated and remodeled. We have brand new classrooms as well as a brand new multipurpose area with attached offices and a brand new library. The playground will be resurfaced and expanded. Plans are in place to implement new outdoor classrooms, a community mural on 6th Ave. and other greening projects for the school.
