Cooper High School's IB Programme is a whole-school program with an honors level at each grade. Grades 9 and 10 participate in the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and grades 11 and 12 are part of the Diploma Programme (DP). These programs provide students with a broad base of knowledge, an international perspective and higher order critical thinking skills.
The IB curriculum addresses familiar disciplines, such as: math, science, language arts, and humanities. What sets the program apart is its distinctive core, the five Areas of Interaction: Approaches to Learning, Community and Service, Health and Social Education, Environments, and Human Ingenuity. These themes are addressed across the subject areas and through interdisciplinary teaching, whole-school activities and personal research, and they make learning more relevant and connected to the student.
