    "The staff at Cook are rising to the challenge of rebuilding a school after new administration, poor test scores, high staff turnover, and high-need students. Test scores have improved dramatically over the past two years and we even surpass other schools in the area with similar student populations. Our students are largely Hispanic, and in bilingual, dual-language classrooms. Our students in the ESL, or English only, classes come to us with social and academic needs that we have worked especially hard to provide interventions for. Schools in this area serve many single-income families that struggle to make ends meet, much less support their child in school. Cook is becoming a safe, nurturing place for our students to not only learn in but to simply be children in. We have a long way to go with enrichment programs, parent and community involvement, and staff retention, but I believe in my administration and teachers. We have recently been relieved by a neighboring school and are down to under 600 students. This will help our ability to meet our community's needs and keep quality teachers tremendously. I am proud to be a Cook teacher and can't wait to see how we grow!"

    "Cook Elementary 2013/2014 was my children 2nd year at Cook, the 1st year was great, because my children had great teachers. The 2nd year was a nightmare. Some of the older teachers need to resign, the school is overpopulated 100%, parent involvement is horrible, administration need to reevaluate what is more important, the students education or the beautification of the building, and the list could continue. If there is a choice to send your child/children anywhere else, do so and fast. Most of Cook staff are not friendly and never have a smile on their faces (not a great way to be around hundreds of children). If your children are smart, they do not stand a chance @ Cook because the teachers and everyone else is so focused on getting the not so smart kids prepared to at least pass state test. They do not have the tools to push the academically successful students."

    "This is my sons first year in school and his teacher was awesome! Anytime I needed something everyone was always helpful! Except the cashier in the lunch line! She needs to be replaced! She was very rude with kids!"

    "Cook Elementary did not provide a very good education for my daughter. She spent most of the time dealing with bullies. The administration could not do anything because of the fact that most of this activity went on behind the backs of administration. The classrooms are too large to give individual attention to students who need more help in a subject. The teachers my daughter had were wonderful, but it seemed as though the size of the classroom made it difficult for them to teach because of troubled students."
