Principal's Message

8GC Families,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our families from our faculty and staff here at the 8GC. We are excited to kick off the 2022-2023 school year! 


My name is Ryan Cooper, and I am honored to serve as Principal of the 8GC. This is my first year at the 8GC, but I am no stranger to Owasso Public Schools. For the last thirteen years I have had the privilege to serve as a teacher, coach, academic advisor and assistant principal at Owasso High School.

People often ask, what makes Owasso Public Schools such a great place to work? The answer is simple- we have the best students in the state! I say it with great sincerity, because it’s the truth. It’s a testament to the community in which we live, one that stands for excellence.

It is our goal to serve our students and families with excellence. We are here to provide your child with the best learning experience possible. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if we can assist you in any way.
