Most elementary schools on Cupertino are rated 10. This is because parents are so competitive not because curriculum is good. Their curriculums are designed for a specific ethnic group. If your kids are active and not interested in sitting down and doing homework more than an hour, don't try this school. I have no idea what they teach. I think they give homework so that parents can teach their own kids. Remember. the school score your kids AND YOU.

Our child is in kindergarten at Collins and while the staff is very kind and the PTA very active, we feel like the academic pressure is way too high. Isn't kindergarten supposed to be fun as well as educational? Our child is overwhelmed with pages of homework every night after doing full day kindergarten, there are tears and fights and a hatred for learning where once there was wonder and excitement. This school is breaking my heart.

This school is heavily skewed toward one demographic so if you are looking for a diverse school this isn't the one.

An absolute nightmare to try to pick up my child afterschool in the Collins parking lot. If you are not there 20 minutes before school gets out, you cannot even enter the lot. After school gets out, it's another 20 minutes before the cars from Blaney Avenue are allowed to turn into the parking lot. Wear comfortable shows because you will have to park on a neighboring street and walk over to the campus if you want to pick up your child.

No transportation facility. I have moved from NJ to this area, CUSD put my kid in overflow school which is Collins, i requested many times for any transportation but nothing done, ideally they should take care about transportation which is common in US but this is not the case here. I am struggling to pick and drop my kid here, Instead school should have provided a common school bus which would save lot of gas for everyone and no one would have to stand in the morning traffic for so long.

This school is awesome! I loved 5th grade! The staff is awesome and there are many after school events.

Although a LOT depends on the child & the particular teacher for each grade level, the overall impact of the school is spectacular. In general, the teachers are extremely responsive & very loving to children. They set the bar reasonably high academically and the students respond to that!! In addition, the Principal, Mr. Woo, is a good combination of warmth & discipline. The office staff is extremely caring. The school can become an extended family for the children if parents are able to participate in the numerous activities that are organized especially keeping in mind the working parents.

5th grade teachers are worst than any other teachers in this area. Lack of quality teaching and too much home work. Their 5th grade teachers are rude and lack discipline. Principal is totally helpless in controlling the rude behavior of 5th grade teachers. Principal tries to show off too much discipline for students but lacks to implement same for his own teachers. Totally ineffective principal.

My son is new to L.P. Collins starting his first year in Kindergarten and he seems happy with the whole experience thus far. Each day he reports with excitement about his teacher, the classroom style and has even made two new friends that he considers his new "pals". I'm pleased that this has been an easy transition from preschool/daycare for him.
