Cooke is a wonderful school with truly dedicated teachers. Ironically, if your white you're a minority so many great Waukegan families have moved or chosen private schooling.

At no other school in the district will you find teaching staff that consistently go above and beyond what you would expect. From after school tutoring, to clubs, to enrichment classes for students, to fundraisers and supporting each other, you won't find a closer group of staff members. This, in turn, ...  Read more
