its a good school but sports could have a little more support, i mean football, basketball, and baseball, always do but other sports like wrestling get screwed over and as our second year open the wrestling team got 4th in the hardest region in the state and had the first winning record out of any sport at cooper but after that year all middle school high school and youth coaches quit because they were treated so unfairly, plus they werent aloud to practice before any basket ball practice so freshman basketball got seniority over a varsity sport i really dont see how that is fair. and half of the team went to other schools because of that, plus the concession stand money goes to the band no matter what sport is playing, even if the band isnt even there they still get all the money for concessions and i really dont think thats fair to other sports that dont get much support.

We were moving to KY from MA, and having 2 teens, picking a house came secondary to picking a school. We did a lot of research, and visited several schools. My boys and I picked Randall Cooper High as our top choice. Upon enrolling, the school administration was fantastic; much easier than the local middle school or elementary, even though they are all in the same district! The principal, Mr Wilson, is amazing. He is very upbeat, positive, and knows all the students, parents and staff. He has been incredibly welcoming and his positive influence is definitely felt throughout the school. This is a new school, so the test scores and achievement measures are just catching up. This is a fantastic school and I am so glad my children are here.

My daughter is a freshman this year and absolutely loves Cooper High School! I have encountered the friendliest and most helpful staff in any of the schools she has attended. I give a big thumbs up to Cooper for selecting the perfect faculty for a high school!

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky used the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and mathematics, 4 and 7 in science, 5 and 8 in social studies, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 11 in writing, and 4, 6, and 10 in language mechanics. The K-PREP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky.

About the tests


Until 2010-2011, Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. Beginning in 2011-2012, Kentucky switched to the K-PREP and EOC exams.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky administered the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. EOCs are tests given to public high school students when they complete a course to assess their knowledge of important course concepts. They are similar to a final exam, except that they are created and scored by an outside testing company, ensuring that the tests are both rigorous and aligned with state and national college readiness standards.
