My son has been at Cottage Lake for two years: Pre-K (which has since moved over to Hollywood Hills from what I understand), and Kindergarden. We are going to be moving a few miles away this summer which will take us out of their immediate area, but we plan on requesting a waiver to keep us with them...the teachers are awesome, the parents are super involved, and they have a lot more sports and extra curricular activities than some of the other nearby schools.

The school is awesome. The size makes it feel like a larger private academy. 325 kids k-6? If you drill into the data, Cottage Creek is head and shoulders above other closer schools with "better" reputations. The parent involvement is spectacular and the principal is very present in positive ways with the kids - ie.,by the end of the year, every child shall have had lunch with her. The front office staff don't have that "not my job" attitude and are accommodating in every way. The biggest thing is that the kids and teachers seems happy and respectful. Beautiful facility. Too bad Avondale is so close without the proper traffic control during drop-off/pick-up - it's an accident waiting to happen.

I was interim principal for a year at Cottage Lake. I was so impressed with the CL in several areas that I feel are critical to effective schools. First the PTA and community is great. They work hard to promote the arts and academics, but also really understand the importance of supporting the whole child - including ethical, inclusive values. The CLC classrooms offer an amazing opportunity for regular ed kids to learn about others who have challenges, build personal empathy, and learn skills in helping these students be successful. The CLC staff is outstanding and are focused on all kids growing at CL. The staff is an emotionally healthy group of people who sincerely care about their students. That combined with their work ethic and curricular knowledge make them a great team. They want to continually grow. They have the best motives as educators. I truly admire them and like them.

My daughter is in 1st grade in Mrs. Stookey's classroom. We didn't know anything about Stookey's policies or habits until we started hearing and seeing amazing things coming from our six year old. I can't recommend Mrs. Stookey, or Cottage Lake Elementary enough. Our daughter just took the EAP cognitive ability test and got 98%. A lot of the credit for that comes from Mrs. Stookey and Mrs. Jackson (her kindergarten teacher) at Cottage Lake. If there were six stars, I'd award that.

Both my son and daughter attended this school and had a great experience. My daughter went on take all of the honors courses in Junior High and was well prepared. My son transferred because he was accepted into the Elementary Advanced Program. The building is beautiful - brand new. The parent involvement and family nights are great. Lots of after school activities are available. The staff was great - the new principal this year should be really good based upon her background.

Small town atmosphere. Limited access to technologies such as up to date computers. Good parent involvement. Well maintained classrooms and lunchroom. Average school lunch program.
