    Greetings, Cooper City High School Families,

    Being part of the Cowboy family is a unique and cherished experience. Each member of our community contributes to our legacy of High Expectations, a Tradition of Excellence, and an abiding Cowboy Community Pride. Our exceptional scholars, dedicated faculty and staff, engaged parents, and supportive community partners form the heart and soul of Cooper City High School. Our shared values and relationships are the foundation of our success.

    Centered around our theme for this academic year, "Motivate… Educate… Accelerate… Every '1' Counts," we honor our past achievements while eagerly embracing a bright future. Our commitment to maintaining our tradition of excellence remains steadfast, focusing on providing exceptional academics and fostering a culture of inclusivity and compassion. Please view our course offerings and curriculum guide: From AICE Cambridge, Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment, Career and Technical to a vast choice of elective courses, sports and clubs, there is something for everyone here at CCHS.

We will continue accelerating student achievement through innovative programs and pedagogical practices while nurturing a culture of kindness, care, and compassion in a safe and secure environment for all.
