Extremely creative and welcoming environment! Faculty and staff are amazing. For students who want to be in a small community type of setting for high school, this is the perfect place! On top of taking your academic classes such as math, science, history, etc., students have the option to pick a concentration in the arts and really grow in that area throughout their four years at Co-Op, and they even get a chance to experience different arts through after school programs. The environment is inclusive, and very fitting to everyone's identity.

Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School is a place you get to show out your amazing talents with others. This school helps us develop more skills in our art and experience something we never get the chance to do in our life. Our teachers help us prepare for the long run, which includes college! I enjoy going to school everyday and feeling excited for what I'm about to learn in all my classes, I appreciate my teachers for helping me out for when I'm in need of some assistance. I made some friends who were also into their art and have many things in common. My overall experience so far has been amazing and I truly love my school.
In thinking on my high school experience, I can’t think of many good aspects. The culture was catty, the academics were poor, and I always felt that I was behind compared to those going to Suburban Schools. However, although the teaching isn’t that great, the TEACHERS are probably some of the best in the country, for what they serve. They’re all invested in the school community, know who they serve, and are sensitive and cognizant of those issues. This school is probably one of the best in the district because of those sensitivities. I’m proud to graduate from such an institution that allows their students to flourish emotionally and always feel like there are systems in place to assist them, even with the odds perpetually stacked against them.
