Cobb Middle School is an important partner with Florida State University in a National Science Foundation project developing computer science curriculum modules that teach middle-school mathematics and computer science simultaneously. As some studies have linked computer coding to improved attitudes about STEM, the purpose of these curriculum modules is to teach the required mathematics while introducing students to computer science to help foster and maintain their interest in STEM and move them along the pathway to the STEM jobs of the future.
Cobb Middle School has been a perfect fit for our daughter. She’s been surrounded by supportive teachers and a great group of friends, and all of them have encouraged her to live up to her full potential. She has been able to get involved in extra-curricular activities including a very active service organization, and she has grown in every way since becoming a Cobb Cub. We feel truly blessed that our neighborhood school is such a good option for our kids.
My daughter and her siblings love Cobb! They come home smiling every day. They talk about their teachers... which class is better... which class is the most fun... which teacher they look forward to seeing every day. THIS means everything to me.
I look forward to going to work at Cobb Middle School every single day. I love that each day brings new opportunities & challenges. While of course, my goal is for students to learn what I am teaching, I also hope that they are inspired and encouraged to strive for greatness, and continue to do so long after our time together is over. I also enjoy working with the parents of our students. Our students have some of the best parents in the world, and those parents have some of the best kids in the world. Our Cobb family is vast and diverse. When you work with people that you care so deeply about, it doesn't really seem like ‘work.’
My child came from another middle school where she was stressed out and her confidence was broken. I heard about Cobb and moved my child there for 7th grade. My child’s whole demeanor has changed and she made honor roll back-to-back!

First Leon County Public Junior High/Middle School
Elizabeth Cobb Middle School was the first Leon County public junior high/middle school. Between 1952 and 1954, the main building was constructed. Additional constructions include the gymnasium in 1985, the media center, a classroom wing (Hillcrest Street), science labs, and the administrative wing completed in 1992. The most recent changes including the addition of the Chorus building and the new front office and Media Center renovations completed in the summer of 2014.
Elizabeth Cobb Middle School has a rich tradition and history enjoyed by students and the community alike. Nestled in the heart of Tallahassee, our campus is located just a few blocks from downtown Tallahassee and the Capitol building. The school is named for Miss Elizabeth Cobb, who served Leon County Schools for many years. She began teaching in 1915 and taught both elementary and high school in Leon County. She became principal of Caroline Brevard School in 1931, and supervisor of Leon County Schools in 1935, the year she retired. Miss Elizabeth Cobb died in 1974 at the age of 96.
