Two nice young football players brought this wonderful basket thanking us for being good neighbors. The school is right behind us and we've always enjoyed listening to the music and game noise. Looks like this school is teaching more than reading and writing. 👍👍👍
A little social distancing with her senior. She missed John Cooper Day and getting dressed to so we made it happen. I could t have asked for a better senior for Elin, Alex is an amazing young woman and Elin just loves her!
Class of 2020 Unites! I have created a project to provide encouragement, love and support to ALL our local High School Seniors during this difficult time. This is also a way for them to make an impact by "giving back" to their community. A t-shirt has been designed for several local schools with the same unified message but in their school colors and their own #staystrong hashtag. For the sale of each shirt, $5 will be donated to the Montgomery County Food Bank, an organization helping those affected by the Corona Virus.

Please join the group and share the information!

The Dragon Booster Club has been hard at work with athletics this year! In August, DBC hosted Booster Bash and administered 150 sports physicals for student-athletes. From luggage tag distribution to spirit shirt sales, creating the incredible "dragon eyes" on Pugh Field, pom poms for Spirit Week, these parent volunteers have been working behind the scenes to keep our student-athletes in good health, well-fed at the concession stands and in good spirits this year! DBC is hosting the first-ever Dragon Bowl flag football games for Middle and Upper School and is looking forward to another Booster Bash on May 4th! The annual JCS Golf Tournament benefiting the Dragon Booster Club and organized by parent volunteers and DBC members was a huge success and is already on the calendar for 2021!

SPAM (Students Preventing Animal Mistreatment) is collecting dog food for hungry dogs. The goal is to donate at least 2,000 pounds of dog food to these two groups.

🐶 Forgotten Dogs needs “plain” foods like Pedigree and Purina, as dogs coming off the streets cannot tolerate higher protein foods.

🐶 Pure Mutts needs organic, high protein foods like Victor or Kirkland for their special needs dogs. Please note: no food containing red dye, as it can make dogs sick. (See flyer for details).

Please bring all donations to room 224 in the Upper School this week. Thank you for supporting the food drive!

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.
