Open Quote If you are a caring/involved parent, avoid Cook Elementary. Every adult entering the school is treated like a criminal. You may not walk your child to class, or even retrieve something left behind without being interrogated by at least 11 harpies along the way. Procedures are unnecessarily militaristic, and largely inefficient at that.
Tax dollars at waste here. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
