Welcome to Cooper!
At Cooper Elementary, we provide a safe, positive, and engaging environment which encourages all students to achieve their personal best and to become responsible and productive citizens with a goal of life-long learning. We believe that every child can and will learn in a fun, engaging, and hands-on way that creates opportunities for all students to achieve their college, career, and personal goals.
Two-Way Dual Language Program
Students in our two-way dual language program receive instruction in both English and Spanish while learning how to speak in both languages. Bilingual children who are educated in a second language have shown to outperform single language children in their native language. Bilingualism also increases brain cognition by utilizing the highest levels of thinking, focus, and awareness. Click here to learn more.
Families value the opportunities to engage with Cooper Elementary, and we never want language to be a barrier. Bilingual staff, including our parent involvement facilitator, ensure Spanish-speaking families feel connected through translated newsletters, emails and letters in addition to being on call to answer any questions. Our five English language development (ELD) teachers provide additional support for native Spanish-speaking students both one-on-one and inside the classroom.
