Cook School is honored once again

The California Department of Education announced this week that Garden Grove Unified School District’s Cook Elementary School was named a 2018 National Elementary and Secondary Education Act Distinguished School.

Cook Elementary in Garden Grove is one of only two schools in the State of California and 100 nationwide to receive this prestigious recognition.

This is the second national honor Cook Elementary School has received in the last two years.  The school was named a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. Since then, Cook has continued with its school-wide approach to promoting the growth mindset, scholarly habits, perseverance and other skills that lead to academic success. Cook also offers a Scholar Support Group and other interventions to help students set goals and celebrate growth.
