I love this school! My son has been given opportunities he did not have at his previous school- advanced math, music performances, just to name a few. There is a nice sense of community- school carnival, Mc Teacher Night, supporting families in need. Teachers are always going above and beyond in communicating ...  Read more

This school has gone downhill in the last couple of years. Great teachers have been leaving in droves, special ed teachers seem to leave all the teaching to the underpaid parapros to the detriment of the other kids in the class.

My daughter attends kindergarten at Cottonwood, and is absolutely thrilled every day to go to school.

The kids love having 2 teachers, and more friends with ...  Read more

Cottonwood is by far the best school that my children have attended. They have been to two other schools in the Tucson area, and we are most happy with Cottonwood. The teachers and support staff genuinely care about each individual student. I have noticed a tremendous jump in my children's math and ...  Read more

Two of my children attend Cottonwood, and I am thrilled with their education. They have art, PE, music, and writing classes - all of the things which usuall get cut when the budget is tight. The entire staff is dedicated to my children's success.
