It's a very BUSY place (ie lots of students). However, they all seem to get the type of education needed. Whether they're Gifted and want to really focus on studies or just mediocre and would rather play sports. CHS knows the most important thing is a BASIC education to carry you forward on your path in life after high school. Some will be surgeons and some will be police officers. We need them all. Not every will be a Physicist. Keep that in mind.
Coppell is academically a great school and has numerous extracurriculars. The emphasis on excellence and success is inherently present. Also, there is for some reason a strong pro-ROK sentiment in this school. And half the kids think that Pyongyang is a person- this kind of oversight betrays a shocking lack of topicality! CHS-ers in general are also not friendly towards plea bargains or cyber-bullying. There is one thing about this school i can't say I'm a fan of. Maybe its just a teenage thing in general, but some kids here are so vulgar! They'll be running down the halls singing 'I just had sex!-' I mean, how crude. Obviously, the best things about this school are the supremely intelligent, articulate, super-chill debaters. These debater are crazy amazing beasts and win at life in general - though I've gathered that they also like having sex and then telling everyone about it. In summary, this school is pretty great and the situation on the Korean peninsula is inherently unstable.
Coppell offered quite a few more opportunities to it's students than other school districts. As a student the classes offered and the knowledgable teaching staff helped me to decide the course i wanted to go when I went to college. I was able to study and learn what I like and dislike before having to pay college tuition for it.
I taught at this school for one year and was very impressed with the ways things were run. I have since come back to teach in California where I started and truly know the difference between this school and other schools. The parents and students need to appreciate this school and take advantage of it. I have learned a lot from teaching there and apply some of their philosophies to my every teaching now. Coppell High School is great school.
I teach music lessons for this school. It's absolutely one of the finest institutions I've ever seen (have been teaching in two states for nearly a decade). It's an honor to be associated with such a tremendous program and to work with the fine students it produces.
I love this school, it has a great athletic program with awesome coaches and the band program is also a high point. The classes are very challenging and I have heard many jokes about this school being more challenging than most colleges
Hello, I am am a product of the Coppell Independent School District (K-12) and a class of 2008 graduate from Coppell High School. Coppell High is truly a unique place. I never completely realized how well we as students were being prepared for college. I am now a freshman at Texas A&M University and have made a very smooth transition into college academia. While my fellow classmates struggle with the workload on a daily basis, I am already used to the stress and can therefore thrive in such a high expectation environment. I wouldn't trade my time at CHS for anything. The friends I made, the experiences I had, growing up in such a bubble town, playing under the lights on Friday nights for football, are all memories I will cherish forever.
