Cottonwood High

Cottonwood High Community School, a United Way Neighborhood Center, is a crossroads where diverse cultural, economic, and geographic communities meet. At Cottonwood, there are 35 languages spoken, 250 English language learners, and 160 students who are refugees. Approximately 38 percent of Cottonwood’s 1650 students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, and nearly 44 percent of students have fee waivers. Cottonwood is the first high school in Utah to adopt the Community School model and a key part of South Salt Lake’s growing cradle to career pipeline.
