The school is pretty small but it makes for better relationships with staff. Overall most of the programs are okay. My main complaint is the science department. The advanced science pathway makes no sense. It’s extremely limiting for students more interested in the physical sciences. In order to take physics you must take AP Bio your junior year. I can’t wrap my brain around this one seeing as biology isn’t even a physical science. I couldn’t even take AP Bio my junior year because I was one point off the Honors Bio curve my freshman year. So now I’m screwed when I take physics in college. Other than this, the worst part of the school is that millions of dollars are being put towards the unsuccessful football team rather than the arts, academics, and other sports. Textbooks are falling apart, the art teacher pays for supplies out of her own pocket, and we can’t even host home track meets because no one will put money towards fixing the track.

The teachers at Cook High School seem to care about the students’ education, and they do all they can to ensure each and every student at the school is prepared for college. Safety at Cook High School is also very important to the staff and students. Although the school is not perfect, the lunches are sub-par, and the students may not always get along, this kind of stuff is obviously to be expected. Overall, however, the school is a very good place for students, as well as teachers, to learn more and grow together
Cook High School is a very safe environment. The teachers are genuinely good people who strive to help students better themselves in their personal and academic lives. I have never seen a case of bullying, and there are clubs catered to create safe havens for the teens that feel ostracized by their community.
