THE WOODLANDS, TX- The John Cooper School, located in the village of Indian Springs, is opening up more spaces on its student roster. The addition of a 16,000-square-foot lower school facility will increase enrollment opportunities for grades kindergarten through fourth. The building is under construction and scheduled to be completed by June.

Head of school Mike Maher said the need for a building was evident. ""For about the past five years, which includes a couple of the worst years of the recession, we were experiencing admission demands,"" he said. ""There were several very capable students, and we simply didn't have enough seats.""

The addition will provide the space to expand at all grade levels - and Maher said the school can now admit 50 new students. Enrollment increases will stagger by grade each year, starting with kindergarten and the first grade, but Maher said the plan will be flexible to meet student demands.

Maher said now is the optimal time to apply for admission to the John Cooper School lower school.

The computer lab will be the first on campus built from scratch - instead of retrofitting an existing classroom. The science room will feature a built-in aquarium and a preparation room for the teacher to store equipment and ready experiments. The building will also house tutoring and conference rooms.

The current lower school will add an art room once the new facility is completed. Future projects call for revamping the playgrounds. The school also plans to hire five new teachers and five new teacher assistants to accommodate the growing number of students. Class size, which is now capped at 18 to 20 students, will be limited to no more than 18 students next year.
