About Us

The John Cooper School is an independent college preparatory school for students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12. The 43-acre wooded campus features state-of-the-art facilities throughout its nine campus buildings. The school is accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Southwest and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools.

Founded in 1988, the school is named in honor of Mr. John Cooper, an esteemed headmaster and independent school educator, whose vision guided the birth of The John Cooper School. Cooper currently enrolls 1,232 students that includes 507 students in Lower School (grades PK-5), 312 students in Middle School (grades 6-8) and 413 students in Upper School (grades 9-12).

Small classes, personal attention, and excellence in academics, arts, athletics, and community service form the cornerstones of a Cooper education. Cooper combines traditional educational practices with innovative programs to teach students to think, question, analyze, create, understand, and take responsibility for their world. Cooper is a diverse community.

Academics include English, mathematics, science, social sciences, foreign languages, computer science, physical education and extensive offerings in the visual and performing arts. Spanish is offered PK through Grade 12 and French is offered beginning in the seventh grade. Eighteen advanced placement courses are offered to Upper School students

In keeping with Cooper's whole-child philosophy, learning is valued in and out of the classroom. Students abide by an Honor Code and affirm the values of honesty and integrity. Students are recognized locally, regionally and nationally in a range of fields, including academics, visual and performing arts and athletics.

Seventy percent of Cooper's Middle and Upper School students participate in at least one sport. Students select from volleyball, football, softball, baseball, cross country, soccer, basketball, track, tennis, swimming and golf. Varsity teams compete in the highly regarded Southwest Preparatory Conference that is comprised of 18 independent schools in Texas and Oklahoma. Cooper athletes have won conference championships each year and have been named individual champions in their respective sports. Each year, five to 10 percent of Cooper athletes continue their athletic careers at the college level.

Club, service and leadership opportunities are offered at all grade levels. The school community contributes to the greater community through club and service projects - including school-wide efforts such as the Habitat Project that has partially funded and constructed Habitat homes for the past 17 years, and the Empty Bowls Project, held each February, to support and fund local hunger relief efforts. Cooper enables students to become creative thinkers, responsible citizens, and lifetime learners.

Cooper graduates have 100 percent college matriculation and are accepted to top colleges and universities, nationally and internationally. Each year students are named National Merit Semifinalists, Commended Scholars and Hispanic Scholars. In recent years, Cooper students have been awarded and accepted prestigious merit scholarships as well as local scholarships. Seniors in the Cooper Class of 2016 earned scholarships totaling nearly $1.8 million for the first year.

The John Cooper School is fully accredited by the Independent Schools Association of Southwest. The school holds memberships in the National Association of Independent Schools, the National Association of College Admissions Counselors, the College Entrance Examination Board, the Education Records Bureau and the Cum Laude Society of America.
