Both of my daughters have attended Cook. My oldest for 2 years and my youngest for 3. We have been very happy with the school. Due to my career we have seen a lot of schools, and this one is by far not the worst. The teachers care about the students and want to help them learn. While I have heard stories of bad teachers, we have not experienced them. We had a friend pull her daughter out at Christmas to home school, while leaving her youngest in the school due to a teacher matter, but even that mother says that she will return her daughter next year, and understands that one bad egg does not make a bad dozen. Sadly we will be leaving again, but we will have great memories of this school and all the fun we had.

We have had two of our daughters attend Cook. The staff is excellent and very caring. We have moved out of state and found that our girls have acclimated to schools that are more advanced than most. This is a tribute to the faculty and teachers at Cook.

My chaild has attended Cook for a good 4 years. I i'm very displeased with the school. The teachers are HORRIBLE, the bullies are EVERYWHERE, and the food they serve NASTY! I can honestly say i hate Cook Ele.

Both my children attend Cook Ele. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal and his assistant are kind and very attentive to the needs of the children. They are great examples of a leaders. I recommend this school to everyone in the Cook Ele. school district.

My daughter started kindergarten at cook August 1996 until she started going to Ramsey August 2003. My youngest son is still going to Cook, he started kindergarten there August 2000. I have loved every theacher my kids have had. Mr. Spicer is a great principle. He is very involved in everything that goes on at his school. They have very good music and art classes. And teachers too. They do track in 6th grade, and I think 5th grade can try out too. Cook has one of the best, if not the best PTA. A lot of the parents you see up there almost as much as the teachers. They are running copies for teachers, reading to a class, decorating the halls, helping with a class project, doing what ever they can do to help.
