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.

I love the school's small classes and attention to learning details.

I know from friends the fine work they do to help students become productive and responsible adults.

Because they help children learn by thinking outside the box. They teach them that they are not "supposed" to learn a certain way and they can succeed at school.


Posted October 21, 2010

because of there no nonsense attitude toward those who do not follow the rules. They are kind but do not tolerate rule breakers There leaders are top of the education wheel. The most progressive school for those that need some extra help. They meet the needs of all who attend.

We help young people become successful at life.

because they work so hard to help their students.


Posted October 21, 2010

Two of my siblings would NOT have gradauted high school if it werent for The Cottage School. I now work there to help with fundraising because I also would not have graduated high school if it werent for a school like TCS. They help kids who have given up and think they are stupid to re-gain their confidence and learn what they need to to move to the next step.

This school gives my child the tools he needs to learn the way he is successful at. This is a school that highlights the fact that children do not learn the same way.

I have seen children come in crying and have seen them laughing after a week of being at TCS......

In the 5 years that I worked at The Cottage School I saw many amazing student transformations. Students who would begin the school year, head down not speaking to anyone would transform into these beautiful butterfies!!!


Posted October 21, 2010

The kids there are great and well rounded and the parents are so appreciative of the staff who take such an investment in those kids.


Posted October 21, 2010

The teachers are amazing! The administration continually looks out for the best interest of the children. They truly want the students to succeed in school as well as in life.


Posted October 21, 2010

This school has helped my nephew tremendously in just a short amount of time. His self-esteem alone has improved 120%. Up until this year he has been in a public school and was struggling, now he is learning to deal with his austism and moving forward.

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.
