At the Whole Schools Initiative Summer Institute in June 2017, Cook was thrilled to learn that it has been named a Model School for Arts Integration! The Whole Schools Initiative, Mississippi’s first comprehensive statewide arts education program, uses the arts as a vehicle for promoting high-quality instruction and learning for students in all disciplines. This unique program goes far beyond “art for art’s sake” and applies the learning power of the arts across the entire curriculum. Cook is one of only nine Model Schools in the state.
