Cook-Wissahickon is great. We've watched our kids learn and grow at the school over the past few years and are really pleased. The teachers are good and they demand a lot from the kids academically. They also coach teams, provide art and science clubs, and win grants. This year we got a new principal and he is phenomenal. We'd recommend the school to parents of young kids in a heartbeat.

Cook-Wiss is one of the strongest and most successful elementary schools in the Philadelphia system. Great faculty, meaningful parental involvement, and a safe and positive environment for the students.

Cook-Wissahickon is a true gem! Just like it's sister schools in the area, Dobson and Shawmont, it serves all students in the neighborhood boundary regardless of ability. Excellent progress is always made from year to year for all students. Intervention programs are available for academic as well as social-emotional needs. The seasoned staff is truly dedicated to their students and families. Unlike charter schools, neighborhood public schools are anchors to their communities and inclusive of all students. Cook-Wissahickon embodies this tradition and continues to create a "family" environment year after year.

I love cook. My child does well and Im proud. They offer a lot of extra classes other schools don't. And I feel like the teachers care.

This is one of the greatest schools in the district! They meet AYP every year! They have teachers that actually care and have a very strong interest in the children's success here. They have been lead by a principal who has taken on many challenges since she has been here and has seemed to overcome them all! In the light of recent events (that have unfortunately happened), she is driven to find more ways to keep children and staff in our school more secure! My children are challenged academically here and have a strong support system to help them achieve those goals. I would not send them to any other school in the neighborhood. The home and school is very active here and helps maintain that positive enviroment for the kids. The parents are active in volunteering and fundraising. I feel very blessed as a parent to have my family be part of such a caring school!

As the proud principal of Cook-Wissahickon School since 2010, I have been able to work with an amazing group of parents, teachers, support staff, and students. The success of our school is 100 percent dependent on the communication and shared vision among all of our stakeholders. Our monthly School Advisory Council includes not only parents and teachers but community members who help us guide our decision making to improve the lives of our children and the neighborhoods in which they live.

I am a parent with two kids in this school. It is a wonderful neighborhood elementary school, with great teachers, leadership, and parent involvement. We have a strong, well-rounded curriculum with science/social studies included every day, a vibrant arts and music program, and a focus on environmentalism and sustainability in the curriculum, extra-currics, and landscaping. High academic achievement, inclusive and diverse. We love this school.
