Individual snakes can vary, but the vast majority of cornsnakes have excellent dispositions. Young snakes of any species tend be be more nippy. If you get one, don't put it in the classroom for a few weeks. Let it settle in, and handle it regularly yourself. Read Bill & Cathy Love's "The Cornsnake Manual."

My children were ages 5 to 10 when we started keeping snakes. We keep a few different (small, typically docile) species, including cornsnsakes, and the children are involved in the feeding, cage cleaning, and handling of them all.
