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 staff are dedicated to the students.the soccer & track coach is awesome & she may even coach basketballin addition to teaching & club activities.this schoolprovides a need for all students to succeed socially.
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.
Everyone who works at the school wears their hearts on their sleeves with a smile
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 God Son loves it. They have found a better way to teach and it shows in the kids.
This school is unique in its approach toward educating and preparing students for life after High School.
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.
The Cottage School has given my son a place to thrive and regain his confidence.
My daughter is no longer being bullied, & now wakes me up in the morning to go to school. Also A's & B's now which have really boosted her confidence level. The teachers actually care!
The Cottage School is unique in its ability to recognize the importance of teaching to stuents strengths, honoring and celebrating their differences and fostering self confidence. There simply is not a school that does this better than The Cottage School.
The Cottage School changed my son's life. Without the nurturing staff and leadership of TCS I don't know what would have become of my son. It was a life changing experience for our family.
A truly remarkable school that enables students to receive a superb education that prepares them for real life.
