  • I don think that Cottage Grove is the 'bad' School people make it out to be. i think tha some of the students do have a behavior problem, but what school doesn't have students like that? Cottage Grove school goes on many trips and it helps the students to expand their mind and their world. that way, they know that they dont have to be stuck in Ford Heights Or Chicago Heights for the rest of their life. They know that theres more opportunities out there for them.... They just have to focus and think AHEAD. It's not a bad school people make it out ot be....
