Robbinsdale Area Schools (Independent School District 281) is an award-winning district committed to academic excellence. We take pride in the choice we have provided to our families and students for nearly a century. We serve all or parts of seven communities with more than 100,000 residents in the northwest suburbs of Minneapolis, Minn.

Armstrong High School has been ranked 10th on the Minnesota section of the Washington Post's "Most Challenging High Schools" list for 2017 (up from 2016), and Cooper made the list, for the first time, at number 27 in 2016. We are very pleased to see recognition of the excellence of these two schools. Read more about these prestigious rankings here.

Cooper High School also made Newsweek's "Beating the Odds List of Top 500 High Schools!" Cooper was also ranked number 7 out of high schools from the state of Minnesota. Read more here.
