My experience at Cook High School has overall been very enjoyable. I feel that I have achieved so much while attending this school. The academics courses offered at Cook High have helped me reach my full intellectual potential by challenging me and requiring me to push my limits a little. The teachers also play a bit role in making my high school experience great. The teachers, administration, and staff are very nice, friendly, and quite comfortable to be around. I have many staff members and teachers I am really fond of. My Cook High School experience has been really pleasant and I have had many great things happen at this school. Everyone from the students to teachers have helped make this school very enjoyable and very suitable for new students and staff members to work/attend this school.
I have sincerely enjoyed my time as student at Cook High School these last four years. The teachers, staff, counselors, and administrative staff were always tremendously helpful, supportive, and nice. Sadly, my time at Cook High abruptly got cut short due to the Covid-19 and my fellow classmates and I never experienced things that made our senior year meaningful. We are so thankful for our teachers who have been comforting and very supportive during this tragic time.
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.
