My daughter is in her second year at HD Cooke. She's in PreK now and absolutely loves it! She has made a lot of wonderful friends. Her teachers are very attentive, involved, and dedicated. They are all genuinely excited about the children and their learning experience. The school has lots of events, and strives to create a strong healthy community among the parents and teachers. Love love love the new LEED certified building! Areas of improvement: Parents could be more involved and communication and involvement of the upper level staff could be improved.

What really impressed me most about this school is the candor and can-do attitude of the staff, along with tremendously engaged teachers who really care for the children. My son went here last year for PreK and had a fantastic experience. Why? The teachers, aids, heck, even Mr. Broadtree, the janitor demonstrated pride in their work and reach out to families, regardless. Special shout out to Ms. Miller + Ms. Vives!!

H.D. Cooke is an up and coming school. Just moved into a totally rehabbed beautiful, LEED certified building. Lots of energy in the neighborhood around this school. One of the 4 IB elementary schools in DC. Dynamic principal, great facility, warm and caring teachers.
