Cole re-opened in 2009 as an innovative school that has direct ownership over its time, money and staff setting it apart from other public schools. This allows them to offer unique programs, like their infusion classes where students have a choice of studying everything from insects or puppetry to money or ballet. Another aspect that makes this school special is they are a designated American Indian Focus School offering an optional program where students of American Indian heritage learn together.
