This school is the absolute best all around and the staff is amazing. I am confident that my daughter is receiving A+ education.

This is a good place for any child to learn. However, grading is severe and communicated as such. I would like to see the teachers use a positive approach when evaluating work. For example...record how many answers the child gets right vs. how many answers are wrong. The minus system is negative (no pun intended) and discouraging . The children are still in the early stages of learning and are in need of academic confidence. Overall, you do get the feeling the teachers care immensely for their students and for that I am grateful.

Collegeville has serious academic expectations. The teachers are ambitious & highly motivated. The principal, her staff & faculty are with out a doubt, actively dedicated to the success of this school & its students.

06/15/09 Todd Sellars, the principal, is an exceptional mentor for our kids. He leads with a open heart (and ears). While he is never afraid to skip through the halls for a laugh, he can always be counted on to greet our kids with a wide smile. Beautiful Lisa Strain is the first smiling face to greet you when you walk through the door. Mr. Sellars may be the spokesmodel for our school but Lisa, the school secretary, is the engine that keeps us going. My family is truly thankful to have (intentionally) moved into the Bryant district. Our daughters' future is as important to them as it is to us. That is rare and a blessing. Go Wildcats!

I have to say Collegeville is a pretty wonderful school. Majority of the teachers and staff are willing to go the extra mile for their students. I've only come across one 1st grade teacher who needs to work on her people skills. Other than that the school is absolutely all about the education of the children. The teachers show great concern when a child is falling behind and that means a great deal considering how much the curriculum has advanced over the years.
