Points of Pride

  1. Our vision is to equip students to be resourceful, critical thinkers who are making a change in their community. We use a set of core values and focus on one a month.
  2. Our Pre-K is led by a certified teacher. We are using the same reading material as our other grades so as to provide consistency.  
  3. Stakeholders who support Hale Cook are dedicated to our mission. Community members, alumni, current families, Friends of Hale Cook, KCPS, and staff have all come together to collaborate for one purpose…students. Amazing.
