A Word from Principal Stewart
Hello, Cocoa Tiger Families!
As we close out SY2023, I want to thank the Cocoa High School community for another year of commitment to excellence! Our teachers and staff have worked very hard all year to provide the best possible learning experience and opportunities for our students. We have had over 30 different field trips this year, to include community service, college visits, college & career fairs, job shadowing, internships, SeaWorld, Kennedy Space Center, Indian River Lagoon, and Brevard Zoo. We have worked with the City of Cocoa, community businesses, Elevate Brevard, and Junior Achievement to establish post-secondary career opportunities for graduating seniors. Our student athletes have won State Championships and set new school, county, and state records. We have made improvements to our campus through our window decal project that amplify the College & Career focus we have on learning, as well as our Tiger PRIDE. As we prepare our Class of 2023 seniors for graduation on the evening of May 22 at Richard “Dick” Blake Stadium, I feel confident in the positive impact our graduates will make on the world they will meet on the other side of the graduation stage. Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Discipline, and Empathy – these are the PRIDE values we work to instill in our students each and every day as those are the qualities, even above academic success, that will carry them forward in life.
I am grateful to lead Cocoa High School and to be a part of this unique, diverse, and hard working community. Thank you for the privilege of working with your children each and every day!
Ms. Denise Stewart, Principal

School Year 2023-2024 Re-enrollment
Attention Tiger Families!
Cocoa High School is excited to announce that the process for enrolling your child for the 23-24 school year has been updated and is ready to be completed in FOCUS online. All students, including new seventh graders, must enroll via FOCUS for the upcoming school year. Your re-enrollment application is not complete until you click on the “Submit and Finish” green button. Cocoa High School will send an alert message to the registering parent on their FOCUS portal page when the application has been processed. Incoming seventh graders must provide immunization records, showing proof of having the Tdap booster.
Failure to complete the online enrollment process may result in a delay of creating your student’s schedule and will result in further delays for you on registration day in August. Emails will be sent to parents over the summer about fall registration day in August and other important events at Cocoa High School. Please check to ensure that your FOCUS account is enabled to receive email notifications so that will receive updates for your student.
All current families should have already activated their FOCUS accounts, as this is where discipline, grades, report cards, absences, state test scores, etc. are accessed by both students and parents.
If you do not have a parent account or if you do not intend for your child to attend CHS next year, please contact the Cocoa High School front office at 321-632-5300 to ensure a smooth transition for your child into next school year.
AVID Applications are open in March! Any student that has college or trade school aspirations can apply and applications are available in 34-113 or from any counselor. Please see Mrs. Browning for more information.
On April 27th Ms. Fisher's AP Biology and Ms. Page's Science Research students visited the Brevard Zoo! Students were exposed to flora and fauna from a variety of ecosystems around the world!

Cocoa High School Dress Code Reminder
Parents/guardians, we could use your help in reminding your child(ren) of the dress code policy at CHS.
Pride is taken in the appearance of Cocoa High School students. School is the student's place of business where appropriate dress and hygiene are important. Students must dress in good taste out of respect for each other and their school. Students must dress in a manner that would not constitute a disruption, safety hazard, or impropriety. The responsibility for the dress and appearance of each student properly rests with the student and his/her guardian(s). The dress code is subject to the discretion of the administration.
- Garments must be of a length and fit that are suitable to the build and stature of the student and must not expose undergarments or be otherwise immodest.
- Clothing, jewelry, and accessories shall not convey messages that are crude, vulgar/profane, violent/death-oriented (Gothic), gang related, sexually suggestive, and/or promoting weapons, alcohol, drugs, or tobacco.
- Pierced jewelry shall be limited to the ear. Dog collars, tongue rings, wallet chains, large hair picks, chains that connect one part of the body to another, or other jewelry/accessories that pose a safety concern for the student or other shall be prohibited. Clear plastic spacers or retainers may be worn in facial piercings. Band-aids cannot cover a piercing.
- Hats, curlers, scarves, bandanas, and sweat bands are not to be worn in buildings or outside in hallways. Extreme hair styles or hair colors are prohibited.
