“We are a community that strives to promote the development of lifelong, resilient learners. Through safe, supportive relationships and a safe, predictable school environment, we strive to cultivate a sense of belonging for all members and guests of our community. We believe our culture of care fosters optimal regulation for all learners, allowing them to access their full range of skills, and take advantage of the educational opportunities offered by our school community.”(Quote taken from Dr. Rick Robinson, Culture of Care)

Cooper Mountain's staff and community are dedicated to establishing a nurturing environment in which each student experiences success in learning and positive self-esteem.

We nurture, instruct and encourage our students toward becoming life-long learners capable of maximizing their potential as responsible, productive citizens.
