I graduated 2 years ago and my time at Cooper was not too pleasant. The teachers are WONDERFUL. So many great people that want you to be the best that you can & are always finding ways for you to be successful. The students who complain that the teachers are terrible, are the students who disrupt learning time. It's not fair that the teachers are powerless to the students who ruin learning for the other students that do want to learn. The administration needs to do a better job at punishing/handling students who are rude to teachers and make other students lose out on their education, it's not fair to those who work hard. The school does a better job at recognizing the "bad kids" rather than giving credit or supporting students who are actually doing what they need to do.

I have loved my time at Cooper. This school combines a good high school experience and education with a sense of real world responsibility and diversity. While some may underestimate this school for poor test scores or reputation, I feel that I have gained a lot more than I could have ever expected here, both academically, I feel prepared for college from difficult classes and engaging teachers, and socially, as us Hawks have an abundance of school spirit.
I like how diverse it is at Cooper, there's a lot of different cultures and ethnicity, as well as some international students, and I think this is what makes Cooper one of the unique high schools in Minnesota. There are lots of the staff and teachers that are really friendly and helpful when you need it. Although there is some cons, like the students can be very wild in the hallways sometimes, or a lot of students lack the work in school, but that happens just like every other schools as well. There is a lot of clubs, sports, and academic programs here, so there is many options to choose from. I joined tennis, soccer, Asian Culture Club, Step-Team, Hmong Girl Scout, and I also tried out the dance team a few time, everything was a cool experience as I was coming out of my small shell, becoming more confident and open. I find that a lot of students here are friendly, fun to talk to and supportive as well. These are somethings I like and experienced here at Cooper High School.
