My son has attended Cook for two years now. His Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Strawn, and his current teacher, Mrs. Young, both deserve plenty of praise for their individual attention to their students. Principal Clark is an amazing addition to the school and has worked hard to implement a lot of amazing programs like homework clubs, ballroom dance, and robotics. He knows the students by name, and never fails to listen to my comments or concerns as a parent and PTA member. The only reason I don't give the school five stars is that there are some teachers that seem to be "tired" of their jobs. They don't make as much effort to support extracurricular programs. However, I believe that parent concerns are taken into account at Cook, so I have no qualms about my son continuing his education there.
My son is on his second year at Cook Elementary, I have been impressed with the new principal and all the programs he has brought to the school. The teacher we have had are wonderful and my son is getting a great education. The PTA has a very strong presence and my son comes home from school happy every day. The school has a nice mix of socioeconomic classes which gives it great diversity.
