N.B. Cook is an awesome example of what school should be like for our children! I have two boys at this school and wouldn't want them anywhere else! The teachers are committed to our children 100% and teach with passion and dedication aimed at helping our children succeed. The added bonus of the arts are also a reason we chose Cook. My children are receiving a well rounded, top notch education. Clean school, excellent staff, positive environment for both of my boys. Would recommend this school above any other in Escambia County!

This is my child first year attending Cook, we were nervous about making the transition from Pensacola Christian to a public school... I'm so excited we made an excellent choice, although Cook is a public school its the best free private atmosphere school in the county. The drama & music classes has helped my daughter tremendously with overcoming her shyness we love Cook!

My child has gone to NB Cook from kindergarten through 5th grade and I wish they had a middle school. I feel like we have gotten a private school experience for free. With just a few exceptions, it has been an amazing 6 years filled with great teachers and wonderful administrators. My child has truly loved her school and so have I as a parent.

N.B. Cook is an exceptional school. The building itself is beautiful and clean. The teachers are really, I think, some of the best in the city. There is a lot of emphasis placed on personal repsonsability and being part of a community. The special areas include common ones like art and music, but at N.B. Cook, students also participate in drama and dance, complete with a wonderful dance studio! The leadership is top notch. Every year each class puts on several performances: one is grade level and the other is a play with is comprised of several grade levels. There is a drama club as well. I am super glad my child goes to Cook!

I love N B Cook Elementary because we've been to 4 other schools, none of which even tried to teach my son, who has ADHD. At N B Cook I have teachers who CARE about him and share feedback with me that I can pass on the doctor to determine when/if we need to adjust his medication, a nursing staff that knew his tummy ache was more than just nerves over the FCAT and called me, allowing me to get him to the hospital before his appendix ruptured, and a counseling staff that helped him deal with his grief in a way that I couldn't after my mother, his grandmother, died suddenly. The Drama club has awakened in him a passion for the arts that I couldn't get him to even look at sideways before. He actually reads now...for fun! It's the most amazing thing I've even seen! And his artistic talents have flourished while at N B Cook. We have one more year here before he moves on to 6th grade and I can only hope we find something half as good for him to attend for middle school!

It is an amazing school. It is a school of the arts. In addition to the regular curriculum, they teach dance, drama, music, visual art, and build self confidence. Every child leaves there feeling more confident and as if they are a star. They build self worth and inspire life long belief in one self. My children have benefitted tremendously from N. B. Cook.

Private school education on public school money

- submitted by a parent

November 11, 2008
After attending a very pricey private school downtown last year for Kindergarten we are convinced without a doubt that changing to Cook was a great thing. Behavior is so much better at Cook and no rich kid cliques even though there are lots of Mercedes and BMW's in car line daily. You must visit if you are even thinking of a change! Wow... I'm saving money and my child is getting a wonderful education with a diverse group of people and fantastic facilities all at the same time. The principal is amazing and the special area teachers are very good at what they do, plus it turns out that my son needed speech therapy and he gets it right at school. Don't pass up an opportunity to go to Cook as it is much easier to get into any local private school than it is to get in here.

NB Cook is the best! The staff is awesome! I transfered my children to Cook last year and I do not regret it for a minute I feel my children are recieving a private school education in a public school. Even though gas prices are continually rising I wouldn't sacrifice my childrens top notch education at NB COOK.

N.B. Cook has many extracurricular activities. Dance, drama, chorus and visual arts clubs meet both before and after school. The physical education dept. sponsors a walking club after school. Tutoring and library programs are other possible options.

Although I was very disappointed with my child's teacher this year, I think that N.B. Cook is a superb school with a wonderful staff. The arts program has made my child a more well-rounded student. I love the way the arts program reinforces what the children are learning in the classroom. For example, if the 1st graders are learning 'parts of a whole', then the piano, drama, art, and dance teachers will design their lesson plans around 'parts of a whole'. It wouldn't be surprising if the cafeteria selections were displayed as 'parts of a whole'. This school is truly unique. There is no other school in the district like this one and that is shameful. They should really look into duplicating this model, especially at the middle school level. The choice of middle schools here leave a lot to be desired.
