School Admission

August 1, 2019

Dear Families,

Thank you for your interest in Andrew Cooke Magnet School for the Fine Arts and Science. We are a public school serving all of the families that live within School District #60 boundaries. Our attendance is based on an application, teacher recommendations, and testing. We also look for children who are interested in pursuing the fine arts and/or science. All of our students take drama and dance during the course of the year as well as music and visual arts. Orchestra lessons for our students begin in first grade and band lessons begin in fourth grade. Almost 100% of our children play an instrument. We have a full-time science teacher and a lab. Four years ago we renovated our greenhouse and it is now an integral part of our Arts Block curriculum.

Applications become available for the 2020-2021 school year in March 2020. Admission testing is held in May 2020.  If any other language besides English is spoken at home, please contact the Welcome Center at 224-303-3600 to set up an appointment for the required language test.

This must be done prior to testing at Cooke Magnet School.

For any other questions or concerns, please contact the school at 224-303-1700.
