    Cotaco School is a wonderful school with many positive and exciting qualities. The teachers promote quality educational standards and exemplify high morals and encourage students to treat their fellow classmates as the golden rule states. Personally I love the fact that firm discipline is administered as necessary in a time when society seems to neglect children and our children are confused about what is morally right or wrong. Cotaco has a fabulous TAG program a technology lab in both elementary and jr.high a superior band program and a beautiful library. My children have received an excellent education at Cotaco and I have always known that they were in a safe environment when they entered the halls. Yes rules are in place and fairly and onsistently enforced which teaches our students to respect authority. This prepares them for a good life not just life. Great school!

    This school is terrible. They don't understand new educational concepts and approaches. Cotaco still paddles students and is very militant in their discipline. Also they do not have art or music for students. The school has religious figurines and a bible on display. They also read Christian books promoting the religion. At the end of last school year an "up and coming " country singer put on a show regarding bullying and ended with a concert including songs called "What Daddy Don't Know" and. "I'll be your whiskey". Teachers are not held accountable for their behavior and minority students are treated differently. They do not want parents involved and refuse to properly communicate.This school is a nightmare for anyone hoping to prepare their children for life in this century. It saddens me to even give them one star.

    The teachers at Cotaco are the best - my kids are in 2nd & 4th grades now and we've had great experiences with both since they started there in grade K. The teachers are the backbone - really really good and caring. I love that this school is dedicated to being a math & science school not just all about sports. Also the TAG program is fantastic!

    I have 2 boys that attend this school. It is wonderful! I wouldn't want them anywhere else. The teachers are very caring and my boys are learning so much.

    As a former student of cotaco school I would give it two thumbs up! Most of the teacher really care about their students. I now am a Brewer student in the 11th grade. Allthough I miss Cotaco I am thankful with everything they tought me. Ecspecially Mrs. Lindsey who was a very good teacher who helped the student until they got the lesson she has been replaced by a teacher who I had my 9th grade year a Brewer and I never had any problems with math until then.The man is a good man I just didnt get his class but I would recomend Cotaco to anyone!

    I like the school because it's small and it gives the teachers better one on one time with my kids and other kids that attend. I also like the way the staff works hard to work with the parents on any problem that may arise.

    I currently have a child in 1st grade. The school is wonderful. My sons is learning so much. He just loves all of the employees. Everyone is so friendly and they make you feel important. The teachears always keep the parent informed of what is going on and how your child is doing. This is an A+ school.
