12th Grade is not an easy grade- it shouldn’t be. This is the year that you have to finally decide what you are going to do the next year. There is a lot of work to be done and a lot of pressure from parents and teachers to get assignments in. Co-op offers a very challenging program and we want our students to be as prepared as possible for post-secondary education. While our program is tough, we have a very caring and dedicated staff who are available to help the students after school and on weekends.
When students graduate from Co-op they should have developed a strong work ethic and an ability to work independently.
” Majuro Cooperative High School is my second home. I’ve been going to school here for 11 years now. It is where I meet up with second family 5 times a week for almost 10 months every year. My second family is my classmates. My classmates are like my siblings because we look out for each other. I know most schools do not create the type of bond that Co-op does. The teachers here give their all to make us to do well in school and to care about our community.
Not only do I treat my classmates like family, I also act like a role model to the younger students. Co-op taught me to be a good role model and to inspire others. This motivated me to make good decisions for the sake of my future and the sake of the students following my steps. Co-op also taught me to stand up for what I believe in.”

“I am a senior who has been attending Majuro Cooperative School since Kindergarten. Throughout the years, I have had good and bad times and the people of Co-op helped me along the way as the years went by. Looking back at the thirteen years, there were hundreds of memories that I shared with my friends and teachers. My teachers not only taught me about math and English, but also taught me to be who I want to be and achieve my goals.
My friends, on the other hand, played a very big role in my life. Due to spending so much time with my friends, I consider them as family. Since our school is small, we know almost everyone and we use this to our advantage because it gives us a chance to get to know each other instead of misjudging one another. Along with my friends, I learned that it is not okay to discriminate another race or gender. We believe that everyone is equal and that everyone is a member of the Co-op family.
Today I am confident and determined to conquer the obstacles that will be in my way after I graduate high school. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Co-op, my second home, my teachers, and my friends, also known as my family. Majuro Cooperative School will always be my home and anyone will be lucky and achieve great goals if they attend this wonderful school.”
