Our students like us too!

A diverse student body in a welcoming school
COOK Education Center enrolls up to 150 elementary-age and secondary-age students, with mild to severe learning disabilities and mild to severe problem behaviors.

Students are enrolled in one of three COOK programs according to their age and needs. Younger students are enrolled in the COOK Foundations program, secondary-age students are enrolled in the Secondary program unless their disabilities are especially severe, in which case they are enrolled in the Workshop at Cook program.

Foreign students can be enrolled
COOK Education Center can enroll foreign students who qualify for I-20 status.

A wide range of disabilities is served
The disabilities of our students span nearly the full spectrum of special education eligibility.

Autism • Asperger Syndrome • Down Syndrome • ADD/ADHD • Learning Disabilities • Medical disorders • Behavior & Emotional Disabilities • Multiple Disabilities • Developmental Disabilities


A “zero-tolerance” school
COOK Education Center is a “zero tolerance” school. We do not enroll students who have been expelled for weapons or drug possession. Nor do we enroll students who are known to commit sexual assault, animal cruelty, or fire setting.
