The Cottage School has had a tremendous impact on my son. Their individual attention, and emphasis on teaching the students to be responsibe for themselves have taught him essential life skills, and he has become a proud and confident student.

TCS is the place for our child. Among the list of things emphasized are 1) helping the student (and family) to understand the best learning style for them and implement that style in daily work, 2) personal responsibility - I love the "student as employee" set up with pay in TCS money for successful completion of contracted schoolwork , core values and principles, 3) individualized attention and instruction in life skills and academics,and 4) inclusiveness

The Cottage is school is phenomenal. My son Omari spent 4yrs there and graduated from the Cottage School. Before the Cottage School, I had become lost and frustrated with the whole education system. I ve tried many avenues, including homeschooling my child. My son almost had pretty much given up on Education until he was enrolled into the Cottage School. I ve never met so many loving and caring people that genuinely care about educating children. My son went from a depressed individual to a happy and proud young man. Not only do they educate, but they also cultivate each and every student into responsible young men and women. My son went from a child that could have eventually dropped out of school; to transforming into a Young College Bound Man... I have the staff at Cottage School to thank for that. Because of that, I m forever indebted to them all.

The Cottage School looks at EVERY student as an individual. They teach to the student's strengths while understanding that learning is not always measured in a test.

My daughter is truely living her dream as a teacher at the Cottage School. She is making a difference in her life by enriching the lives of young teens academically and socially. The tightly bound culture, support and structure of the Cottage School is exceptional and unique. A win/win environment for students and staff.

My daughter was in and out of schools for years. Public and private. She had depression and ADD and didn't fit in. Her teachers were threatened by her intelligence and couldn't deal with her other issues. Cottage gave her a place where she was celebrated for her uniqueness and was finally not the "odd girl out". She thrived there.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
