Through out my 4 years, it felt as if it went down hill. The teachers are sweet and some are just awful. The faculty and staff are great! Students however, have zero respect for anyone.

I have had many experiences at Cooper over the past three years and had watched Cooper change for the better from changing the lunch schedule so student could have more time for tutorials and clubs to adding new classes based off of the students interest like a firefighter course. Cooper also has courses such as Air Force JROTC, Color guard, track, football, soccer, many other physical activities for students who love outside activities. And for student who are preparing for college, Cooper has a Dual credit program, where students go to a college campus for part of the day and got college credit. My favorite thing about Cooper is the teachers and the clubs, teachers at Cooper truly try their better to help you pass and the clubs are just a good way to relax during lunch once a week. My personal opinion of Cooper is that it is a pretty good school and that the teachers and principal are constantly making changes to improve our school.
It really is about how you make the experience. I started high school thinking I was too cool for it. I didn't participate in dress-up days and school events, but when you put yourself out their it makes the experience so much more fun. The classes you take really influence the people you will be around. Although Cooper might have its fault they really do try to work with you and help you become a better student. Teachers are willing to not only be your educator, but also your friend. And for that reason, I am a cougar until I die.
