Truly one of the best elementary schools in Tucson! We were made to feel like family from day 1. My daughter was going to another wonderful elementary school (Van Horne) when it closed and merged with Bloom (which we hated - for numerous reasons!!). We quickly went searching for a school we could love as much as Van Horne...and Collier was it! The teachers are warm and caring, the staff is friendly and the principal is a wonderful and involved leader. Involved parents, fun activities...we really loved our time at this school.
We've loved our experience at Collier. My son and daughter went to K-2nd here and we love the small, close knit environment. We'd recommend this school to anyone!
I am so pleased with the teachers, parents, and other students at Collier. My daughter has a speech delay, and her teacher has gone out of her way to make sure that she has kept up with the other students. The class sizes are small, the teachers love what they are doing, and the atmosphere is gorgeous. I highly recommend this school
Wonderful, committed teachers! Great community school with a focus on academic excellence and extracurricular programs.
My oldest son attends Collier through open enrollment. We have had a great experience and wonderful teachers every year. He has special needs and the special education staff is great and I appreciate that Collier has inclusion. A great A+ school!!
Collier Elementary is a fabulous school. The students work hard to achieve their goals and the teachers are there to help and support them at all times!
Collier offers a family oriented environment with a strong focus on academics. The staff is dedicated to excellence and goes the extra mile to help each student reach their potential.
Collier is an excellent School. I have been a parent there for six years. It has its ups and downs. But, there is a strong core of parents and teachers that are committed to it. Many parents continue to volunteer after their children have moved on to middle school. All teachers are currently Gate trained. Two teachers are OMA trained. They offer a music program incorporated in the curriculum for all ages, they have a community school run preschool and aftercare, PE, track, Chess Club, Spanish and after school tutoring. After this year there will be Promethean boards in all classrooms. They are in the process of completing a butterfly/hummingbird garden at the school. The kids have collected over $4000 for the March of Dimes over the last two years. I could go on and on. Come by for a visit and make your own decision.
Collier is an AMAZING school! The teachers are dedicated to each and every student. They offer so many additional opportunites for my children such as; a comprehensive school physical program, an Art Parent Program in additional art program, music education, band and orchestra, Spanish, and an awarded track program. All teachers are GATE trained and most certified and considered a GATE Inclusive School, and offer tutoring. They also have a preschool, before and after-school program and summer program that has added additional academic success for both of my children. The staff is so friendly, I would recommend Collier to anyone!
This school has no leadership and fails on every level. The academic ratings continue to fall year after year. Look at the numbers! The population continues to decline year after year. Look at the numbers! Try a charter school.
Great school because of dedicated teachers, great families with a good network of volunteering and involvement. Fun activities along great academics. This is everything a school should be!
Collier creates a learning environment in which my children excel. It is more than a school, it is a family
The entire staff works very hard to help children and the parents are very involved
Great school, great community and great staff! Have two children and have flourished there academically, met great friends and more.
I love Collier because of everyone there. From the Principle to the teachersstaff and the parents as well. (A close knit group that feels like family!)
What a terrific school! It is like a second home. The teachers and the staff and the parents are so welcoming! My kids have learned a lot and have excelled greatly at this school.... Great school.
Collier is one of the Highest achieving schools in TUSD. It is a community school with caring teachers and staff!!
My son did all his schooling at collier and my daughter only has one more year of Collier and I will not only miss the teachers and the staff but the Collier family. I feel very blessed to be with so many people who care about each other and the kids.
We absolutely love Collier! My daughter is in Kindergarten with Ms. Ann McGriff and we are so pleased with the cirriculum, and how much our daughter has learned in just 9 months! The school has lots of great activities for kids/parents and everyone is involved and truly cares! I could not have asked for a better school for my daughter (and son soon) to attend! Thank you Collier!
