Posted January 2, 2005

I Think that Collins has a great variety of everything. It has good classes for the students. It has loving and caring teachers that are there for the parents, the staff, the students, and each other. Collins has alot of good things going on at the school like PTA, Extended Day, After School Academy and the school has dances. I think that Collins is a great school for kids of all races.
