The Cottage School Alumni Profiles – Isabella and Tessa

The Cottage School elementary school Alumni ProfileWe are so proud that the children who attend The Cottage School transition well into other educational settings and look back fondly on their time at our school.

Twin sisters, Isabella and Tessa, attended The Cottage School through 6th grade. We asked each girl to write a bit about their experience. Here’s what they had to say.

Isabella 
Hi, my name is Isabella and I used to go to The Cottage School. My last year at The Cottage School was in 2015. I was in 6th grade with my twin sister Tessa, and my friend Emily.

The Cottage School prepared us well for the public school academically. When we first started at our new school, it seemed like we were far advanced compared to the rest of the class. We received good grades and made good friends at our new school.

I am now in 8th grade, and my teachers are getting me ready for high school. I’m glad I am now in a public school, but I think The Cottage School enabled and encouraged my creativity. It allowed me to learn better than any other school would have. 

Tessa 
Hello, my name is Tessa and I am a twin who went to The Cottage School from preschool through sixth grade. I went there for a long time and learned a lot and did many plays with the school.

I think that going to The Cottage School helped me in terms of my grades. I am a honor roll student who gets A-’s, A’s, and A+’s. The Cottage School taught me how to study well, get my homework done faster, and prioritize my work better.

All the teachers at my new school love me. I think it is how The Cottage school taught me, I have been a kind and enthusiastic student that has always been on top of her work.

What did you like about The Cottage School?

I like that we didn’t have very much homework so that we could do a good job on the homework that we did get and that we could do some other stuff and not do as much homework. – Tessa

How did The Cottage School help you to do well at your current school?

The Cottage School helped me do well in school academically. – Isabella

The Cottage School helped me because they taught us well and if there was something that we didn’t get, then we could go to the teacher and she would help us and focus on that for the day. Also, we did all of the homework and there was not as much stress to get things right. – Tessa

3- What’s the best memory of TCS you have?

Making great friends. – Isabella
