IB/AP Program

Cooper High School offers two different avenues for students to earn potential college credit. In ninth and tenth grade, students may participate in our Advanced Placement (AP) Program, which includes three available courses. Students’ remaining courses are taught through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme framework. In eleventh and twelfth grade, all IB courses follow the IB curriculum, and many courses will allow students to test and obtain potential college credit.

IB Programme

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, concept-based teaching and learning, global contexts, Approaches to Learning skills, the learner profile attributes and interdisciplinary connections.

 

AP Program

Advanced Placement is a program created by the College Board which offers college-level curricula and examinations to high school students.The AP curriculum for each of the various subjects is created for the College Board by a panel of experts and college-level educators in that field of study. At Cooper, we offer courses in Human Geography (9th grade), Biology (10th grade) and US History (10th grade).
