Students in Ms. Mata’s class learn about adversity and emotional regulation through lessons on countries in the Caribbean and the devastation they face every year due to hurricanes & earthquakes.

“Yet these people seem like the happiest on Earth. Music and dance is how they cope with the hardships of life,” explains Mata.

During Wellness Week, students explore the origin of these rhythms & dances and apply emotional regulation strategies to step out of their comfort zone and do a dance presentation in front of their peers.

Third grade students in Mrs Dietrich’s art class are learning cross-contour drawing. Students have been working on a drawing unit of 3-D forms (cube, cylinder, prisms, etc) with one point perspective and are now applying that knowledge in a realistic still life of fruit. Our practice day was a success - “I can see the 3D form of each fruit represented on the flat 2D paper…. Can you?”

The John Cooper School students harvest fresh veggies they have grown in The Children's Garden and bring them to Chef Ryan in the Cooper kitchen to use in fresh school lunch recipes!

Liz Favors' second-grade science students walked through the halls of The John Cooper
School's Mitchell Lower School Thursday
morning, each holding a colorful plastic basket of freshly-picked greens from the school's
Children's Garden that filled the air with the smell of green onion and garlic.

They were on their way to the campus cafeteria, to deliver the garden bounty to Chef Ryan Wills, Director of Food Service, and Chef Nikki Purnell, sous chef at the school.

The students lined the baskets up neatly on one of the food prep tables in the school kitchen and then Wills carefully explained how the herbs and vegetables they just picked would be incorporated into that day's lunch for nearly 1,500 staff and students on the campus.

He showed them a Buffalo Cauliflower Salad the kitchen staff whipped up that would use a dressing made with green onions and herbs from the garden. The youngsters bubbled over with questions about uses for the produce like how would they use the turnips they had just picked and even how do they get all of the dirt off the vegetables so they can be a part of the school.

From Curiosity to Wisdom

A recognized leader in independent school education for 31 years, The John Cooper School is proud to have grown with The Woodlands. Since the inaugural opening day in 1988, Cooper has nurtured a love of life, learning and the world around us.

Our history includes being part of George Mitchell’s initial vision for The Woodlands. In the early years of developing a new planned community, Mr. Mitchell set aside 43 acres for a private school and sought the guidance of renowned independent school educator Mr. John Cooper to counsel him about establishing a college preparatory school in his “new hometown.”

That vision became a reality when The John Cooper School opened on September 6, 1988 and the school has grown in both size and distinction to become one of the premier independent schools in the Houston area.

Cooper opened with an enrollment of 175 students in Pre-K through Grade 7 in 1988 and a grade level was added in each subsequent year until the first class graduated in 1994.
