  • I attended this school for 2 years, should have only been one! This school is horrible, you talk about "favorites" and look the other way. I would not recommend this school for anyone. A school I would recommend is Southwest Open School also located in Cortez. I graduated from this school, with far more knowledge then I could have gotten at Montezuma Cortez High School.
