Great school if you have a bright student. Lot's of good gifted and AP offerings, plenty of opportunities for leadership and extracurricular involvement, diverse curriculum offerings.
I have been going to this school for three years now, I started my 10th grade year.I am sorry to say this school is horriable, most the staff are disrespectful and never listen what you have to say. I do agree with everyone else, the school does only care about the school rateing. All Im saying is this school is not nearly the school you hear about, things need to change starting with Ms.Dolls attitude.
We moved to Cooper City for the schools, only to be very disappointed. The staff could care less, it's the School Grade that matters. What the students learn comes second. The Math program is very disappointing. Most of the school year, during the FCATs is spent only on obtaining that Excellent School Rating. The staff, the really do not care what the students learn. If a student needs extra care, assistance, guidance it is not encouraged. Cooper City High cares about it rating, not educating the students.
Cooper City High Schools is not the school it was 4 years ago. Perhaps new leadership needs to be introduced to bring this school back to the standards it was once known for.
Cooper City is a good, not great, high school. There are plenty of opportunities for motivated students, exceptional teachers, and a strong base of parent support. My biggest disappointment has been in the lack of rigor associated with the academic elements. Message to administration: It's okay to make kids work hard and it's okay if they don't like it. 'Good enough' isn't the same as excellent.
I went to cooper city high school. The student teacher ratio. Good athletic team and a diverse student body and great extracarricular activities all add to this outstanding school
CCHS used to be the school to go to. It maintained high standards and the kids actually learned. Since Ms. Doll has come in and micromanaged, the school has gone from an A to a C. Drugs are rampid and the quality of learning is next to none. Students have no study skills, the teachers do not challenge, and basically are there for their tenure. I moved to Cooper city for the high school and have been sadly let down in a very big way.
I went here when I was a teenager and I liked it. It hasn't been long since high school and I was very involved. It's a great school. The teachers were very considerate and taught me things that got me through college. I reccomend this school greatly.
This school is what you make of it: if your child is school-oriented, then they will do fine and possibly excell. If your child, like one of mine, is someone who is an average student, then they could easily fall through the cracks if they should encounter a subject that is difficult for them.
Cooper City High has been a fantastic place for my son to attend high school. He is involved in the fantastic band program and has engaging, caring, talented teachers. We couldn't ask for more.
my son goes there now and thinks it's great! loves the block schedule.
My son graduated from cchs in 2004 after attending for three years. There are some really excellent teachers at this school. My son especially enjoyed the auto mechanics program, (which has won awards at a national competition) unfortunately, this is a popular program which is hard to get into. In fact, it seemed that it was always a struggle to get the classes he really wanted. The school is overcrowded, and the lockers in the hallways were reportedly removed for this reason. There are several portable classrooms. I sat in my son's algebra class( portable) during parent night and the ac was so loud, I could hardly hear the teacher. The building is old and needs some renovation. Bathrooms are disgusting! I am surprised to see the school has dipped to a grade of 'c', it was designated a national school of excellence when my son was younger.
As a former student of Cooper City High, I am pleased with continuance of excellence at this school.
My daughter has been in Cooper High for 1 year now, we are from Europe and I am amazed about the poor level and the numbers of classes only 4 per semester, including 1 class theme ' How to make it thru high school' !!! What do you learn and how deep do you go with 4 months classes! We just had the School Recital on March 7, 2004, $17.00 per parent! Complete inorganization, NO sound and not even batteries in the only 1 microphone, NO lighting and neons light in back stage, NO dynamics and NO teaching of confidence how to be on stage NO motivation from teachers Awful outfits extremely poor level and so boring The worst food ever! I am 36, I went in Europe in 9 Middle and High school at the University in Paris and in the USA at FIU, this recital was the very worst ever and the most expensive....
I just graduated from this school, and honestly, I loved it. Yes, there are good and bad teachers, as there are anywhere else, and the administration is really strict, but one bad experience doesn't make it a bad school. If you are looking into moving into Southwest Broward, CCHS is your best choice of high schools. Take it from someone who knows firsthand. They are strict, tough, and at times, trying. But it has made me a better person for it.
It has been fortunate our son went through the Cooper city school system from elementary at Griffen, Pioneer, thru H.S. His courses and teachers for the most part were beyond the limits of 'A' school interpretation and have given hima great base for college for which he has been accepted to two colleges already.
I have a junior at this high school and I am extremely pleased with his progress. The school offers a great array of courses that many other schools do not. The staff is hardworking and expects the same from the students. I am glad that my 8th grader will have the same opportunities as my junior next year. We moved to Cooper City over 12 years ago expressly because of the schools, in particular the high school, it is a decision we have not regretted.
My student recently graduated from this school. The administration is the worst group of people to ever have to deal with. Some of the hardest working students on campus, the band, never got the recognition and respect they deserved from the administration, the principal, the other students and the school board. If Cooper City High is an 'A' school, I do not know how, and I would hate to see how a 'C' school runs. The people who run the school need work, the teachers do not.
