History

Coconut Creek High School is a public school in the city of Coconut Creek, Florida. The school is also affectionately known as Cougar Country. The Cougars pride themselves on having not just an outstanding athletic department, but an award winning Journalism team (The Harbinger), Superior Theater Arts department, and Scholastic Arts department that has drawn international attention due to aspiring artist Meynardo Garcia's deportation battle.[2]

Year after year Coconut Creek tries to improve on everything. This academic year Coconut Creek is facing many changes from a new principle to the amount of enrollment decreasing.
