    I have read the 1 star review and am sorry that person had such a bad experience. I have 1 child who went there and another who is there now and the school is fantastic. My oldest saw bullying that was stopped where it started. From lunch workers to the principal a focused no bully policy is in effect. In every profession there are persons who could be doing better and do not speak to people appropriately. I hope the ones 1 star experienced have learned what is right in handling children.

    Looking forward to Cottage Lane and love South Orangetown School District as a whole. TZE (grades 3 and 4) was a wonderful school and for parents reading Cottage Lane is the next school (4th and 5th graders).
