Two of our children attended Cottonwood from Kindergarten until second grade. We transferred to Mesquite but we liked Cottonwood a lot better. The parent-teacher communication was far better. Cottonwood teachers answer their emails the same day and don't make you feel strange for asking what your child's strengths and weaknesses are. The principal changed but we didn't notice a big difference. If we were to move back, we'd definitely put our children back at Cottonwood.
The teachers,& students are no less than fantastic! Great school to attend.
What I like about Cottonwood elementary is that they do not hold students back. I mean my son went there, his reading level was a couple of years ahead of his class. They would have to check out a book from the libarary at their reading level, took a test after that on comprehensive. I do not think a child who read at a higher or lower level should stay behind or have to catch up because of their reading level.
C.E.S. has been a wonderful educational home for my daughter, now in 5th grade. The Principal and office staff get to know each student personally and have always made me feel very welcome on campus. The teachers are very academically skilled and take sincere interest in the educational and emotional development of the students. Communication between the school staff, students and parents is excellent, open and comfortable. I look forward to my younger children attending this school next year.
I was one of the parents that did not want the new change, but decided to go with the flow. My children have adjusted very well to their new school and I realized that my children will follow my example. If I had kept my poor attitude than they would not have adjusted well. Think about it parents, children learn what they live.
