Cook County Public Schools Reviews

2 reviews
What I like about Cook County Public Schools are the new AP (advanced placement) and accelerated curriculums being offered and introduced. The best part about this is that students can succeed at their own level, and pace themselves accordingly. There is lots of focus on different ethnicities within the school, which adds to some of the appeal as well as creating some divisions. What could be improved is the offering of pseo classes, introducing them to students, so that credits may be applied to a range of different colleges. Class times have also changed to block scheduling, which should provide added time to learn and grow.

Cook County High School is in a small town, so the class sizes are quite small as well. The school need to work on is teacher-student relationships. We have small class sizes, which in turn should mean that teachers, helpers, and the principle should not have a hard time having a personal relationship with each individual. I think that the respect between staff and student needs help. Not all staff have a problem with this but overall I believe that there should be more effort put into respecting students, and intern us respecting our teachers and staff. With that being said I do believe that our sport systems are very supportive. Coaches are great one on one with athletes and are always trying to help out side of the gym in anyway possible. They are there fully there for their athletes. Not only are the coaches great but the sports system really pushes athletes to be the best they can be on the court, they really push them to become faster, strong and tougher.
