Catherine Cook School

FROM THE Education

At Catherine Cook School, we believe that education is far more than the acquisition of knowledge. Our whole child approach ensures students are prepared for future success by learning how to solve problems, capitalize on strengths, make decisions, and communicate in an effective manner. We encourage our children to take on opportunities by adapting to new endeavors with empathy and courage.

A student’s first years in school are essential in creating a love of learning. Our small class sizes, personal attention, and collaborative spirit create an environment that inspires curiosity, adaptability, and achievement. Teachers utilize project-based learning to incorporate a variety of academic areas like literacy, math, and history into exciting, multifaceted experiences.

Catherine Cook prides itself in being a hub for creativity and innovation. Education Technology and IDEA are school-wide, cross-divisional programs that promote design/computational thinking and doing with both cutting edge technology and traditional methods, including:

  • Coding
  • Virtual reality
  • 3D modeling and printing
  • Laser cutting
  • Shop tools
  • Sewing
  • Robotics
  • Audio and video production
  • 1:1 iPads and laptops

We are committed to cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive school community. From an early age, students explore the importance of personal identity and celebrate how we are both unique and similar to one another. Bringing the city’s many resources into our school and our children into the city, they develop a personal sense of stewardship and social responsibility through service learning activities. Partnering with outside organizations provide cross-cultural perspectives and empower students to become leaders in our increasingly diverse society.
