All programs at this school are top notch. With public schools like these, no private schools are needed.
I was a CHS student from 01-03 who was very dissatisfied with the school. Though the size, maintenance, and extracurricular activities were spectacular, I found the school academically exhausting, the courses extremely time consuming, the counselors difficult to reach, and the teachers very impersonal and hard to get along with. The fact that one of my teachers threw racial comments at me for being Asian in front of the entire class is no exception. Many of my peers agreed with me that CHS is purely 'business'; not many were emotionally attached, resulting in the lack of school spirit and the incentive to wake up every morning. Most only expect to receive a good high school academic education, sacrificing the memorable high school experiences students of other schools seem to have. Though the school I am currently attending is not academically up to par with CHS, I'm happier and much more involved.
ADHD or special needs are not a stregth in this environment. Their focus on social status, social climbing and shallow dreams is a true disappointment!
I am a former student from coppell high school and I thought that the school has many rules that are not needed. The lanyards that we had to wear do not give what it was intended to do. It does not make any one fell safer by having to wear annoying strings around our heads. They only care about their image and not the students. They put up signs in the hall way in the middle of the year because of blue ribbon. They did this instead of putting them up the beginning of the year when students needed them. Overall I would say coppell is a bad high school.
I have found the teachers at Coppell High School were very accessible. They hold tutoring sessions both before school, after school and by appointment. They have email and voicemail in their classrooms and very quickly respond to any of my questions. Coppell ISD has an online parent portal which is a website that allows parents to access our students attendance and grades real-time. In addition, we have Blackboard where the teachers posts their assignments, syllabi, reading lists, spelling words, etc and our students can access that information over the internet at home. Lastly, Coppell High School is considered a Competitive School District which is given more weight when applying for college.
I have had two children graduate from Coppell High School and I have another who will be a freshman this fall. We have had nothing but cooperation from teachers and administration alike. The counselors usually know their charges by name. I am a teacher with experience in private and publick school. The teachers at Coppell High School are some of the finest I've seen anywhere. My two older children were active in band, speech and debate, student council and were also in the Pre-AP and Talented and Gifted Programs. I would put their preparations for college against any other public or private school.
We took our daughter out of Coppell public schools after 10 years after her 9th grade year because the large size of the school and trimester system were problematic. It was very hard to get a meeting with a counselor and to get any communication going with several teachers of key subjects. We put her in private school where it has been a much better experience for her as she works hard to prepare for college. The school should not have been expanded to make it accommodate all high school students but would have been better served if they had built a second high school or truly separate 9th grade satellite school. You pay high taxes in Coppell but the high school experience is not worth it.
