Recently Renovated

In 2010, an extensive renovation was completed to the HD Cooke campus. The original building, built in 1909, was modernized and a 9,100 square foot addition was added. This addition contains a new gymnasium, cafeteria and a central circulation core for the entire building. The renovations were completed using green design principles and is the first DCPS facility to achieve LEED Gold certification.
