Cottonwood is a wonderful school. It is the smallest school in the district. All the staff know my child's name. The principle is very active with the teacher and does crafts at events with the children.
School is very disorganized. Little to no communication with parents about school events. Unless you're one of the lucky few that gets to ride the bus, getting to and from school is a mess. Walking along the side of Foster road is dangerous, yet many parents let their kids do it alone. Jaywalking parents, cars parked illegally and speeding drivers make it a nightmare. If you drive, plan on getting there 15 minutes early, or you'll be driving up and down Foster road for 15 minutes, waiting just to get into the parking lot.
My oldest son has attended Cottonwood since kindergarten. All of his teachers have been wonderful. My son has excelled in Reading and Math. He loves school. I am a parent that is very involved so I have seen, first hand, how wonderful the principal, office staff and teachers are. My youngest child is 4 and he has a speech delay so he sees the speech therapist, Rose Flynn. She is the best! My son has made excellent progress with her and we look forward to him attending kindergarten at Cottonwood next year.
