apple distinguished school

Lubbock-Cooper Central Elementary is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2021-2024.

Apple Distinguished Schools are centers of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence. They use Apple technology to connect students to the world, fuel creativity, deepen collaboration, and make learning personal.

This distinction is the culmination of hard work from our educators, trust and support from our community to experiment the boundaries of learning, and, most importantly, the brilliance, creativity, and innovation of our students. The selection of Lubbock-Cooper Central Elementary as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success in creating an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic achievement. Our educators are growing daily in their practice of layering great teaching practices with intentional technology integration. Teachers utilize iPad devices to model instruction, and manage and organize their class structure. This practice buys back minutes to devote to small groups and personalized, face-to-face instruction. Lubbock-Cooper Central Elementary is looking forward to connecting with other Apple Distinguished Schools globally to create unique learning experiences for their students.

Lubbock-Cooper Central Elementary School is one of five elementary schools in Lubbock-Cooper ISD. In 2019, the campus (along with the entire Lubbock-Cooper Independent School District), implemented a one-to-one iPad initiative.
