Very disappointed, my child has been here since Kindergarten. Until we hit third grade I was very happy. This year has been terrible. Teasing and billing have increased instead of decreasing from the beginning of the school year. Communication with the teacher or the program is non existent and every third grade class seams to be on a different curricula. Everything is blamed on the EOG preparation but as parents we have no idea what is going on. Very disapointed indeed. I am currently looking at other options.
Love, love this school especially the magnet IB Program it offers! It saddens me to see reviews like the prior one. While it's understandable for a parent to be upset over a personal experience, I don't think it's appropriate to trash the entire school in a rant that is not constructive and present only one side of the situation.
I recently posted a review about Cotswold & it was removed. What good does it have if we as PARENTS can't post HONEST experiences that we had. I had a VERY VERY BAD experience with COTSWOLD school, that involved my disable son. I'm in the process of pressing charges against the school & its staff & also CMS for ignoring my concerns & opinions. PLEASE DO NOT remove this review, because prospective parents need to be aware of what's going on in these schools before they enroll their child.
I have experience nothing but great things coming from cotswald. I also loved how the teacher made sure my child learning needs were met. I would not want my son to go to any other school besides Cotswald.
Love Cotswold! This is our second year there. All the teachers I've met are wonderful and the leadership is great. I am impressed with how the teachers work to meet the needs of each and every child. The IB program is excellent and Cotswold does a great job of integrating it with everything the students do. We toured many CMS schools - including several extremely popular magnets - no other school came close. We are SO happy with our choice!
Cotswold School is fortunate to have a volunteer parent base as talented and hard-working as the faculty and staff. This is a community that really cares about the students. Even teachers in other grades know my student's names and recognize me. It was easy to find families with values that match ours without the school being homogenous. All classes mix a wordly focus with scimce, match, and a lot of curiousity. The IB elements are terrific. My children are excelling academically. My son was reading the Hardy Boys in kindergarten. We especially like the K/1 combined class and the 'looping' for older grades.
