The Cottonwood School course of study blends California Content Standards, project-based learning, and 21st Century Skills with the philosophy of Montessori. Incorporating TCS values with the spiraling curriculum deepens understanding leading to student agency—where a student has a growth mindset to take charge of their own learning.

The Cottonwood School students are expected to complete the courses required for graduation. Students are encouraged to pursue internships, special projects and other endeavors with the guidance of an advisor for credit toward graduation.
