We have high expectations for your academic and behavior achievements, and hold every scholar to that standard when they enter into the Lion’s Den. Our commitment is towards our scholars and their families, to that end, we will put forth every effort to form respectful relationships while fostering rigorous and enjoyable educational experiences. We ask that you communicate with us and stay involved in your scholars’ educational process so that we can work as a team to ensure success.  We look forward to seeing you achieve success here at Cooke and the our entire team is here to support you!! Please remember that your scholar’s journey to school success begins with you and the effort you put forth to realize success.
