"And Still I Rise"
You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise. Maya Angelou
A Welcome Message
From Our Principal
Welcome to C.O.P.E. Center North- Home of the Lioness! We are a school of choice for expectant and parenting teens and their children and our school’s philosophy is based on providing Continuing Opportunities for a Purposeful Education (C.O.P.E). The program addresses the educational, social, and medical needs of our teen parents and their children.
In addition to the academic program, the on-site Nurturing Center provides quality childcare by early-childhood professionals dedicated to providing a nurturing environment that focuses on the social, emotional, and cognitive development of the babies and toddlers. There is also an on-site, full-service medical clinic that provides pediatric, obstetric, and gynecological services.
Our support staff and student services provide assistance to teen parents to guide them through their academic program and solicit community resources to promote independence in our teen parents.
You are invited to visit our school to experience this outstanding and unique teen parent school.
