Cook County Middle School1

This school is horrible. The children are required to do homework, but they cannot take textbooks home. That is rediculous. They are giving our children a substandard education. My child was suspended for protecting himself after he was attacked and was told to "stand there and take it", by an authority figure. There was an alleged "hit list" by a student, and the parents weren't even notified. My children came home and told us about it. This school district does not think they have a problem with bullying when in fact they have a serious problem. If they don't open their eyes there will be a school tragedy here too. This will be my children last year here. Worst ever!
Teaching at Cook Middle School for 15 years and leaving for another school district, I now know what I actually had there. The facutly and administration are the best. They truly care for the well being of the whole child and family. This is a school where anyone would want their children to be a part of. I can say for a fact that this is the best school in the south for middle schools and I have taught and visited in many. Keep up the good work colleagues. Sheila Maxwell
