This school is an excellent "EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT". My 1st grade daughter is a student at Collins and her education level is above average. She has been there since 3yr old pre-school. Her teachers strive for excellent in their students. Knows each child's strength to make it better. The principal and the staff are very caring and want nothing but the best education for the students. I lllove the school. My older sons attended between 2000-2004. A proud parent since. A WONDERFUL EDUCATED STAFF. Go Terrific Tigers!!
This is a great school. There are many opportunities for your child to grow academically, socially and emotionally. My child's teacher was awesome. She knew exactly what his strengths and weaknesses were upon the first week of school. My son has grown so much. The class size was small which is definitely a benefit for a great education. My son is reading two grade levels above. Please keep up the great work Collins! Thank you so much!
THIS SCHOOL IS A GREAT ACADEMIC SCHOOL: The children at this school are learning a tremendous amount of knowledge at this school. The school is small but the academics are large, not to mention, the students are recognized for their abilities. My child attends another school now, and she is not recognized for her intelligence. However, when she was at Collins Elementary, my child was a STAR. Thanks to Collins, my child is still pushing
Collins Elementary school have an awesome principle and professional instructors. I am so grateful to have my child in the 4 year old program. My little girl is learning to read better and write. I will travel miles to get my little girl to this school on time. This is an A+ School.
I have 2 children who attend the school, 1st and 2nd grade. I feel the teachers are extremely nice and get along very weel with the children. The school try's to make it fun for the kids to learn. My issue is that my children come from another state in which the curriculum is more advanced. I feel that they are being held back! My 2nd grader for example often complains of how bored he is and his teacher has acknowledged his advancement. Instead of moving him forward they prefer to complain of his fidgeting. She says, since he tends to complete his work before the other children, he disrupts them from learning with his humming and fidgeting. I will be looking for another school for them to attend. I don't want my children to be held back if they are capable of doing so much more.
I have two children that attend Collins and i feel like my 7 year old is not being taught enough. I agree with one of the parents that the school is outdated. My kindergartener is not being challanged don't get me wrong he has a great teacher, is just that he is the type of child that needs to be challenged or he will get bored. I feel that the curriculum needs to be updated or changed completly as well as more parent participation. Parents have to participate to make a better school for their children.
I have a daughter who just finished kidergarten and is going into the first grade. I feel like Collins Elementary is an ok starter school due to the fact that it is small, it makes it easier to keep a look out for the kids and track thier progress. I feel like the school itself is very outdated. The knowledge she has obtain is wonderful but I feel like if she was at another school the knowledge obtained would be greater. One of my biggest problems with this school is that it henders my child from knowing about diversity and the amount of information she could have learned throghout the year. During this school year her class has constatly had to start from the beginning of the curriculum due to the fact that another student joined that class. This has happened about 4 times that she mentioned.
The teachers are hard working and truly care for the children. My son has learned a lot from his teacher this year.
My children were attending another elementary school up until August 2003 when the rezoning of schools forced them to attend this school.The school had been given a very bad reputation and I was apprehensive about sending my children there. However with smaller class sizes than their previous schools and teachers who do a good job, my children have suvived their first year at Collins Elementary. I do however make sure that I do keep up on what my children are doing in school by keeping in contact with their teachers. My oldest child who will be a fifth grader this year is not being challenge enough ,being a bright child and will be attending a science magnet school in the fall, I hope this will be a great move for him.I hope to spend alot more time in the school when the new term begins.
