Mr. Cooney

Welcome to Physical Education and Wellness at King Philip Middle School!

My name is Mr. Josh Cooney and I am very excited to begin another school year with King Philip! I have been a part of the King Philip Community, both at the high school and middle school, for 16 years now as a paraprofessional, football coach, Art teacher, Physical Education teacher, and a Health teacher. 

I graduated from Plymouth State University in May of 2004 with my Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design, and later from Boston University with a Masters Degree in Physical Education and Coaching. I currently hold Massachusetts Licensure in Art 5-12, Physical Education PreK-8 and 5-12, and Health/Family and Consumer Sciences.

I was born and raised in Plainville, Massachusetts and attented King Philip as a student. I am currently living in Upton, Massachusetts. During my spare time I enjoy being outside spending time on Sebago Lake and participating in a wide variety of sports and activities including kayaking and weight training. I am always eager to get involved with activities at school, including cross country, intramural volleyball and basketbal, ski club, and spring track and field.

I you need to get in contact with me, please feel free to email me at Additionally, you can access my virtual classroom information here. For now, any student in need of extra help can get in touch with me during the assigned virtual office hours every afternoon.

Although unique and different from our previous norms, I am looking forward to another great year!
