Dear Members of the Cotting School Community:

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education regularly conducts a detailed on-site program review of Cotting School.

The most recent report, which was issued on January 2, 2020, reviewed the following programs: Cotting Day, Cotting HOPEhouse Residential and Cotting Summer Day.

We invite you to review the DESE Report, which continues our approval as a private approved special education school. In addition, Cotting is accredited by the New England Association of Private Schools (NEASC). The NEASC Visiting Committee Report from our most recent accreditation visit, in October 2019, can be found here.

We welcome inquires about our school and hold monthly information sessions. Please feel free to call or visit us at any time throughout the year.
