Robbinsdale Area Schools
High School


Welcome to the Home of the Hawks!

Cooper High School athletic programs are set up to provide an opportunity for students to develop and use their athletic skills in a structured environment which provides meaningful competition, enhances physical and mental well-being and teaches positive values. The value of an athletic program in the school is significant and cannot be overlooked. It has a profound impact on individuals, the school, and the local community.

Athletics will bring people with relatively nothing in common together as a cohesive team. This team will train together, play games together, and will undoubtedly share unbelievable, life-altering opportunities throughout their sports season.

The Cooper activities department fosters an inclusive and sustainable community that provides participation opportunities for all students, regardless of race, gender or economic status. 

We strive to be part of the change while maintaining an environment in which all individuals receive the respect, acceptance, and positivity they deserve.

The Cooper Hawks compete in the Metro West Conference. Conference members include Benilde St. Margaret's, Bloomington Jefferson, Bloomington Kennedy, Chanhassen, Chaska, Cooper and St. Louis Park. The athletic teams, debate, speech, one-act play, visual arts and music are registered with the Minnesota State High School League
