    "This school was built right next to a dump. If I could give it 0 stars, I would. On January 14th, 2014 over 60 kids and staff were sent to the hospital because of a methane gas leak from the dump. Parents are now trying to get this school shut down. School board officials knew of the potential hazards of building a newer school next to a dump, but didn't care! A lot of people were against them building the school there. They are now probably saying to the school board, I told you so!! I am now scared to send my son to school everyday! Talk about reckless endangerment. Please avoid this school at all costs if you can. It's not worth your kids life!!!"

    "The school is newer, which is great, but the teachers and staff do not use the technology they have available to them at their advantage. I can't believe my son's teacher doesn't put grades online. They have the website to do it, there is even a place for it on the site. But, my son's teacher just doesn't use it. It's just ridiculous in this day and age. We moved from a tiny town (575 ppl) in another state, that was way more technologically advanced than this school. I used to even get email grade alerts! I'm not impressed at all. Also, good luck with trying to find anyone that can answer any of your questions. I'm seriously contemplating private school next year."

    "The new (2009) school, on Lexington Avenue, is built 1300 ft next to a dump. Since the beginning of the school year children have been exposed to a variety of toxic/poisonous gases.The staff was well aware of the toxic gases being emitted since the first day of school.(Windows on the south side of the school are sealed shut.)The "rotten egg" smell, H2S was present almost daily. I would grade Cortland School/staff with an "F" for Failure. Staff involvement would have had the school tested sooner.The school was tested in the spring and tested positve for H2S on June 2010. The school is toxic.Keep Out."

    "It's a neat and clean school where the teachers and parents obviously care about the kids and their surroundings."

    "As a parent I am very satisfied with the school. The teacher's for the most part seem to be wonderful and nuturing to the children. My husband & I are glad we choose to live in a small town with such a close community and small school."
