Mission and Vision
The Cottonwood School provides an innovative, educational learning environment and prepares students to navigate the local and global landscape as they collaborate with one another. This is accomplished by providing varied educational experiences through a homestudy program (TK-8) and a site-based high school program grounded in Montessori philosophy and inspired by a deeper learning pedagogy (project-based learning) to support the unique needs of each student in an environment where they can feel safe and experience academic success. It is our belief that every child can and will succeed when given various opportunities and modalities for learning.
We serve students within El Dorado Hills, Shingle Springs, White Rock, Clarksville, and the surrounding communities. The Cottonwood School is set to open in September 2019 in El Dorado Hills.
