From both what I have read and experienced with Cory's, they are indeed 
happiest in a school with a minimum of four.  These should be of the same 
species.  I have been told that mixed schools will work ok, but it hasn't 
in my tanks (they don't school together much when the species are mixed).
Good luck,
