About

Welcome to Robbinsdale Cooper High School! 
Here at Cooper, students are given the opportunity to reach their highest academic potential while participating in enriching activities, giving them the opportunity to grow both in and out of the classroom.  World class faculty believe it is our mission to prepare students to succeed in this 21st century – and our students now have known nothing else than learning in the 21st century! 

We focus on critical thinking skills and provide a global-minded education for jobs that do not yet exist.Our International Baccalaureate Programme (IB) is one of the largest in the estate of Minnesota.  Our Middle Years Programme (IBMYP), one of the oldest ones in the state, is schoolwide to provide every learner with rigor and relevance through carefully constructed inquiry, and requires each student to reflect on learning from a world view. 

IBMYP and the Diploma Years Programme (DP) open up an infinite number of doors for post secondary education and readiness for career and college.Cooper is absolutely committed to giving back to community, and to instill that desire in students.  It is the expectation that Cooper students will take advantage of rich service learning opportunities, providing them with a clear understanding of the world around them and their capacity to make an impact on that world. 

Through service, students grow as cooperative learners and compassionate adults.  And our service learning is second to none – literally, as Cooper High School earned a coveted Gold Medal in 2013 from the Jefferson Awards Students in Action – a program focused on service learning.Cooper’s rich tradition of offering a wide spectrum of arts, athletics and activities provides opportunity to tap into students’ strengths and talents. 

Our staff ensure top quality programming to support students throughout the day and beyond.  Along with IB, programs such as Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID), Admissions Possible, Cooper Cares and others are designed to support all students throughout their high school career.We encourage you to join our community where we believe it’s not just success, it’s significance. 

Become part of the Cooper family.
