    "My daughter is in 4th grade and has been attending Cottonwood since Kindergarten. When she first began attending, I couldn't have been happier with it. Her teacher was wonderful and Mrs. Sour (former principal) was amazing. Over the years and I have become increasingly unhappy with this school. I chose Cottonwood with an inter-district transfer based on test scores and reviews at the time. My daughter is a little more advanced than a lot of the children that attend and instead of challenging her they have placed her in a combination class for 3 out of the 5 years she's attended. Despite my complaints, they have done nothing to change this. She also has a substitute at least 2-3 times a week. For me, this is unacceptable. The office staff on numerous occasions have been very rude as well. However, not all complaints, they do have their good qualities as well. I can just see a decline in standards over the years."

    "Our son is in kindergarten and so far, things have been great! We love his teacher and she's very in tune with the kids. I think the reason why we are having a good experience so far is because we are VERY involved with the happenings there. We go to all the functions and meetings as well as make sure to routinely speak with our son's teacher. I think this is SO important and it's very lacking nowadays. We do not have much $ but we still make sure to donate whenever we can in school supplies. It's sad but most of the parents of the children in our son's class weren't aware of the changes coming up at the school. This information was provided at a parent meeting ( a call was made to the homes) and honestly, maybe 8 parents showed up. I think with more parent involvement this school can excel!"

    "The school has its issues, I rate it two stars, because of the overcrowded capacity, teachers are dealing with up to 32 students per class, many of which are unruly, and their hands are tied in ways to deal with them. The office staff has not changed, they are still unprofessional, which is sad, because they are the first impression parents get of the school. I have heard of bullying going on, and no effort is being made to address it., a bunch of responsibility shifting. My son is still there, only because it is close to my house, that has been the only benefit of Cottonwood"
