Coppell Independent School District Reviews

I attended Coppell High School for my junior and senior years. The school itself is large and even has a state of the art sports arena. There are numerous clubs and extracurricular opportunities, so students can find a niche if they diligently try. CHS offers a substantial number of honors, AP and IB classes for those seeking academic rigor and some teachers offer after-school tutoring sessions. The worst aspects of Coppell High School? The terrible cheating epidemic which has plagued the school in recent years! Some students here are so driven to secure academic success that they are willing to sacrifice their ethics. The teachers are well aware of it, so, fortunately, more actions are being taken to bust the cheaters!The expansive size of the school may work against some students because sometimes, it is difficult for information (about club meetings, extracurricular opportunities, etc. ) to get around.

This school districts main focus is on learning, in many way they succeed with it but there is always an albatross. The cheating in the middle school and the high school is intrusive. The emphasis on learning constructed an environment in which immigrants, especially those of asian descent, flocked to the area to provide their children with the best opportunities, however they have instilled an intense pressure on their children to succeed academically. The school district is trying to crack down on cheating, however with the pressure on students to achieve, the cheating has become more and more creative and therefore remains the main problem at this school. The district itself focuses more upon grades and GPA than actual learning, especially in the accreted classes.
A better-than-average school district in the region. However, its prime days are over, and the administration and educational standards are poor in relation to its prior reputation and ranking. Many students and their needs are ignored. For instance, the city only has one huge high school (not counting something called NewTech) and it is poorly configured to support the many and diverse academic and enrichment needs of the entire student base. The district spends substantially more on sports and on the administration than on the academic support for all students that it should rightly prioritize.
