Cottonwood Day School
Cottonwood Day School in Bozeman, MT was founded in 2014 by a Bozeman mom with a background in education and social work. It is the first and only private, non profit elementary school for students with learning disabilities in the state of Montana.
Students with learning disabilities need a specific learning approach to achieve academic success. Cottonwood Day School provides a unique and exceptional learning environment to students with learning disabilities. Cottonwood Day school’s specialized approach to instruction takes into consideration that each student’s learning style is unique. Our comprehensive team of reading, elementary, special education teachers, occupational therapists, and speech and language therapists work collaboratively to ensure that the goals and objectives of each child’s learning plan are met.
At Cottonwood Day School, our mission is to support students with learning challenges and partner with families, so students can reach their full potential academically, socially, and therapeutically in a supportive and inclusive environment.
What Our Parents Have to Say
What Our Students Have to Say
Thank you for all of your support in letting me go to Cottonwood Day School. My future has never looked so good.
Cottonwood has been invaluable to me. One of the many lessons that Cottonwood has taught me is to stand up tall and be proud of who I am. I’ve made many friends over the past school year that I hope to have forever. My teachers have made me rise like a balloon over my challenges. Not only have they taught me academics and speech therapy, they are also part of my family.
Just like you I hope to help people in need. I think it is important to give back to the community. Before I went to Cottonwood I did not like school that much and I did not have many friends. Also, I was not as active outside of school. Now that I have joined the Cottonwood community I feel like a new person. I am skiing during the week and taking a few classes at the high school. With your help and Cottonwood’s commitment, I can do anything that makes me feel like me. I am much a happier person going to this school and that allows me to communicate, socialize, and bond with people.
If I can keep up my hard work, I can help homeless people that are in need of food, water, and support. This is one of my ideas to aid people in the future. I also like work with old people and kids.
Again I just want to say thank you for giving me a great Opportunity to learn and grow. You have given me faith in myself by supporting me and giving me a great education.
