Mr.  Joseph Cochran

Principal's Bio



I am excited and honored to be in my position as Principal of Prattville Primary School and I look forward to the good things we will accomplish together. It is humbling to serve as Principal. Prior to becoming Principal at Prattville Primary School, I served as the Assistant Principal. 

Prattville Primary has a dedicated faculty and staff that strives daily to provide our students with an engaging curriculum and limitless learning opportunities. The teachers at Prattville Primary use teaching methods with proven evidenced based outcomes for elementary school learners and they strive to stay ahead of the curve in their profession. I am fortunate to be part of this team and we as a team will strive daily to advance learning opportunities for our students.

Please take time to find and read the plaques on our buildings that document the importance education has played in our community over many years. This history should enhance our sincere desire to build upon the advances our school has made and we together will work to continue along this positive path.

The education of children is greatly enhanced when all stakeholders in a child’s development take an active role in their education and our school will strongly encourage parental and community involvement at all levels. Please feel free to contact me at any time with suggestions for ways to improve your school.

My favorite quote comes from Benjamin Franklin when he said, "Tell me and I forget, Teach  me and I may remember, involve me and I learn."
