John Cooper School To Expand, Increase Enrollment

The John Cooper School is planning an expansion project for their campus that will allow them to enroll more students.

The John Cooper School is a Pre-K through 12th grade private school in The Woodlands entering their 27th year of service.

The school has grown rapidly over the past 25+ years and is planning an expansion project that will allow them to sustain that growth.

Last year, the school added a 16,000 square foot building that provided room for an additional 62 students. Next in the plans is a 45,000 square foot math and science building. The new building will allow between 50 and 100 new middle school and high school students to enroll. Construction is set to begin next summer.

The expansion project should help John Cooper keep up with the growth in The Woodlands. "The Woodlands is exploding with commercial and residential development," Head of School Mike Maher said. "The increase in applications is skyrocketing. We need to create more space so we can add them as our students. We have to turn away applicants. We have waiting lists at just about every grade level." Current enrollment for John Cooper is 1,136. Maher said the goal is to reach 1,250 after the projects are competed.
