We are a military family that had to temporarily evacuate from Japan in March, 2011. The administration and teachers at Cooke were very welcoming to our family. They placed our kids with great teachers, acclimated me to the routine and in a very short while, we had a had a little bit of "normal" back in our life! Thanks especially to Rosemary, and all of the wonderful staff that supported our family!

Cooke is an outstanding school. This will be my daughters second year there and we are thrilled to be a part of such an amazing school. As a mother of 5, and this being my youngest, I have been through my share of school experiences. I can say nothing negative. I'd be will to put Cooke up against any private school anyday!

This was my child's first year at Cooke and I have to say I am utterly disappointed and wish we could relive the whole year over at a different school. His teacher should NOT be teaching elementary students as her demeanor is more suited for college age students. This really intimidates the children and therefore they suffer in so many ways for it. Such a shame.

Cooke School has everything you could hope for in any school, private or public. The principal, Ms. Sessoms, is amazing. Her leadership and guidance has raised the bar for teachers and students.
