It Started in a Shoe Factory...
That's right - the main school building at Catherine Cook began its life as the factory of the B&B Shoe Company. Purposefully redesigned for use as a school, our main building at 226 West Schiller is now the educational home to 460 students. Three full floors plus a basement level house classrooms for students from preschool to 8th grade, a well-stocked library, science labs, art studios, music rooms, makerspace, tech lab, AV studio, cafeteria, art gallery, and two rooftop playspaces. Our beautiful gymnasium is right next door and connected by a covered bridge walkway. In addition to full-court or half-court play and a cantilevered running track, a retractable proscenium stage, state-of-the art lighting and sound equipment, and a catering kitchen give added flexibility to gymnasium. Across the street at Cobbler Square, we have additional Middle School classrooms, offices, and a black box theatre space known as The Studio. Our commitment to "green" standards and sustainability -- through recycling, source reduction, use of earth-friendly products, and environmental education -- pervades our school culture and our approach to facilities management.
