I like the cottage school because it focuses on supporting alternative learning children to be self-reliant, independent, and personal leaders. It is importatnt to me that my child learn from his experiences and grow to be a healthy citizen. The Cottage School sees the possibilities in the child and not the limitations. They support the learning and hold the child accountable.
My son is dyslexic. He entered 7th grade in public school reading on a 2nd grade level. TCS improved his reading, restored his sanity and gave him and opportunity not only to learn and catch up, but to excel.
The Cottage School believes in teaching to the child, not the crowd. Learning the skill, not just getting the grade. Learning to live in the real world, not just how to pass a test. All this while teaching respect and caring for themselves and those around them. This school has changed our lives and given my son an opportunity to be the best he can be. .
TCS provides a caring and nurturing environment for kids with special learning disabilities. Their small group focus and one on one engagement help youth who make get lost in larger settings to excel.
This school is impressive in that it provides for the individual needs of every students who enters its program. The strong curriculum and structured program challenge students at their level, while maintaining a personal, hands-on approach to education. Each student is different, and The Cottage School celebrates these differences while providing a strong education.
The Cottage School provides a learning environment filled with trust, respect, authentic concern, and individual accountability. The diverse student body fosters a school culture of the acceptance of differences that is inherent in all of us. The Cottage School continually helps my son realize his potential by jointly setting personal and academic goals, and developing a plan to met those goals. There are weekly assessments with all of those involved in my son's education, and he is constantly provided with any assistance necessary for him to achieve his goals. He is responsible for his actions, his behavior, and his success as it should be. This commitment to nurturing the individual student in becoming a responsible, self motivated, adult makes The Cottage School the great learning institution that it is.
This school truly cares about the success of the attending students and alumni.
The Cottage School helped my daughter regain confidence in an academic setting.
The Cottage School is a safe place for my son to explore his interests and learn how to be self-sufficient. The teachers are very encouraging and supportive. Their "way of doing things" promotes responsibility and creates a structured environment so he can thrive.
The Cottage School has proven to be the best alternative for my daughter. My wife and I are so please with the progress that she's making and the job they are doing. They are truly an asset to the community and to the children attending.
The Cottage School is an educational experience tailored to each student; no one falls inside the cracks. The communication, energy and positive atmosphere lats throughout the entire school year. This is what parents are looking for. The Cottage School is also what every student needs. I am thankful we found this school; it was the exhale I finally allowed myself to take. So many important life lessons are taught. The sports and clubs are phenomenal and the trophies are numerous. The Cottage School was not only our choice, but also our sons. Please take the time to see this school. You will be thrilled.
Small class size, able to allow kids to shine in areas they don't normally in a typical large, public school setting. Since teachers get to know them, and classes are small enough to allow flexibility.
I love this school because it provides opportunities for students to achieve success, realize their individual strengths and rekindle their dreams.
My son attended TCS Middle School for grades 6-9 until a move to AL. This wonderful school helped tremendously with being responsible, being social, writing, creativity, organization, and leadership. Highly recommend this school for students needing it!!!
My child has a learning disability and was told he would never go to college. After 7 years of nurturing at The Cottage School not only did my son attend college, but he has an Associates Degree and is one year away from receiving a 4-year degree. Thanks to The Cottage School!
The Cottage School has been the perfect match for our daughter. She is now in the eleventh grade - her sixth year at Cottage. We are so thankful for the nurturing environment this school has provided to help our daughter flower and grow. We now have great hopes for the future.
