Open Quote I have had nothing but bad experiences with staff at Cottonwood. My kids are unhappy @ this school and I will now be driving them 40 miles away to go to a better school. The staff is rude and unhelpful.Not to mention all of the elementary kids are in split classes... 1 teacher literally running back and forth between 2 rooms!! This school is a joke. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
