    Wish I could put no stars. Terrible school! The education is terrible and my daughter was a year and a half behind in reading when she left the school. The teachers are ever changing and after my daughter got attacked by 2 students on the school property and nothing was done I left Hutto ISD completely. Beware terrible school!

    Cottonwood Creek is def. a part of our family. After a horrible experience with a private school this school was a welcome change. My daughter loves all of her teachers and the office staff always greet our entire family by name. GREAT SCHOOL!

    This school is absolutely a nightmare! My child unfortunately attended this school for 3 years. From fights on the bus to bullying in the classroom to teachers who could not control the class to a principal who could care less about what was going on to kids cussing in the hallways classrooms etc and the list goes on and on. I would never recommend this school to anyone.

    Cottonwood Creek has a wonderful principal and vice principal. They are very smart and caring people who know a lot about their school and their students. The teachers are dedicated. My son has gone to Cottonwood Creek since it opened and each year he has had a wonderful teacher. He has had three 'veteran' teachers so far each one with a great deal of experience (over 10 years). This school emphasizes its ethnic diversity in a really positive way. I think the students faculty and parents are more tightly-knit because of the PTC and community involvement.

    Terrible Administration. Under par teaching. No resources for helping children with special needs.

    This school just opened this year but has already found excellent ways to get the kids and parents involved. My 5th grader gets well-balanced activities including math art music gym class library time and time on the computer. The teachers are wonderful and the assistant principal and principal are phenomenal. The staff from the receptionist office to the cafeteria is inviting and helpful. I would highly recommend this school.
