The Cooper School

The Cooper School is a private, independent, non-sectarian school that values the participation of families from diverse backgrounds. The Cooper School offers an exceptional holistic education for children grades K-5.

Mission: The Cooper School supports the development of the whole child through an integrated curriculum that balances academic, physical, artistic, emotional, and spiritual endeavors. We provide an education that respects the unique qualities of each child and encourages a passion for learning throughout a lifetime. The Cooper School fosters the ability to think with clarity, to create with imagination, and to feel with compassion. Our learning community offers an opportunity for students to grow in their ability to know and nurture the self, understand and care for others and the environment, and to act with purpose, service, and social responsibility in the world.

Fourth graders recently finished the book “Literally: Amazing Words and Where They Come From” by Patrick Skipworth and Nicholas Stevenson. As a class, they learned that the original meaning of the word ‘ukulele’ was “jumping fleas” in Hawaii. This is because the noises that the ukulele makes sound like fleas jumping on the strings!

Third Grade waters their new classroom plants!

Second Graders got busy writing nonfiction books. Areas of expertise include football, Lego, fishing, and bats!

Fourth Grade Egyptologists recreated the Nile River this week in Social Studies. To model the Nile, scholars mixed potting soil with grass seed. They added a river bed to flood with water creating a rich, fertile soil for the growing season, often known as “peret” in ancient Egypt.

3rd Grade paints trees using pointillism which is a painting technique in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. What fun!
