I attended CHS from 2005-2009. The class sizes were great, and I felt like I received a great education. I was a participant in the AP program, and I feel like we had special treatment. Our classes received the most funding and were able to have experiences that "regular" classes were not granted. Many students who did not take AP classes were simply happy to graduate, and did not care about their grades. Fighting was abundant during my first two years at CHS until Mr. Flohr came. He is wonderful and really turned the school around! Overall, I wouldn't trade my years at Collinsville High School for anything.

Collinsville High School cares about their students and faculty. They try to provide everything we need in order to graduate and make our life better. Mr. Flohr is the best principal that CHS has ever had! He is just one of the teens. He is spunky and loves all of us students like we are his own. I love Collinsville High School and I would not want to go to any other school.

I love Collinsville High School because of all the programs that are available for students academically. The students have so many different classes they can choose from whether they're interested in child development, welding, auto body, construction, accounting, business, etc this school gives students an opportunity for students to get hands on training on many fields and make it easier for them to choose their career that they are interested in before going into college.

CHS is a school that continually strives to improve itself. That desire to not accept 'good enough' leads it to greatness!

CHS is a large school with lots of diversity among students and staff. We have tons of school spirit, and numerous clubs, sports, and organizations to get our students involved. The staff here is dedicated to making a difference in each and every life they touch. Kids like coming to school here, and staff like coming to work here. CHS is truly the High School of Champions!

My oldest daughter graduated from Collinsville in 2007 and received a great scholarship to U of L. She was very involved in High school with Student Council and basketball. My youngest daughter is currently a sophomore at Collinsville where she is in Student Council and plays basketball and softball. Both my girls have had some really great teachers at Collinsville.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
