Robbinsdale Cooper Senior High School Reviews

There's fights and bathroom vandalism somewhat often, with the occasional fire, but you should be fine. Our sports are pretty good, Girls Basketball won state 2 yrs ago. Teachers here are supportive the majority of the time. We have IB (Diploma) & AP courses here, but overall, we're not the greatest ranking school.

People normally hang with others in their race group, but there's good variation. The Music & Arts are still underfunded/appreciated. More cultural clubs are being created, like Asian, Latino, and Pan-African. You can typically find help. The sciences and such deserve more attention, too, especially Robotics and Drone Racing.

The food here isn't the best, but there's some good options. The front foyer, office, auditorium, ticketing booth, baseball field, parking lot, and shed have been remodeled this past summer-fall, but some other basic things have not been (completely) fixed or funded, such as water fountains. These improvements are a good start, better can be done.

Being a student at Cooper is an experience I honestly think you couldn't find at many other high schools. The diversity is something you don't see everyday. It so many different people with different backgrounds and different perspectives, you're bound to learn something new. That has been the most rewarding thing about being a Cooper hawk; the diversity. The teachers have a understanding that all their students don't think the same and come from different backgrounds, and the majority of teachers accommodate to that very well.
My experience at cooper highschool has been amazing. I’ve made new friends and cooper gives me the opportunity to change things. If we don’t have something ; such as a club, you can make it! I’ve learned a lot from the people who I’ve met and go here. Cooper is a family. Something I would like to see change would be the student parking lot.
