  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on November 03, 2010
  • Rating: 3 (3 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Cottonwood Elementary grade K is overpopulated, 31-35 students per class, there are unruly troublesome kids that act out time and again without repercussion.

    Teachers are dependent on volunteers for help in the classroom, and in some cases simply resign to baby sitting. because of the teacher to kid ratio.

    The office personnel have little if any people skills, and often come off as rude and unprofessional.

    The principal Mrs. Sour is doing all that she can under budget restrictions to maintain control but is fighting an uphill battle.

    I give the teachers and Mrs. sour 5 apples, the overcrowding and office staff I give 1.5, which is why I come to terms of 3
