Not very well. The school does not seem to have the resources to deal with students with learning issues when that student does not qualify for special education (and I'm not sure how well they address the needs of those students). They need a better system of interventions, especially as it relates to behavior. They have a tier one, school-wide behavior system in place, but I'm not sure how well that translates into the classroom. I do not think they have intterventions for students beyond that. The After School Program totally does not understand how to deal with students who have learning and behavioral issues.
Could not ask for a better school. My child is in Kindergarten this year and at mid-way through the year she has far exceeded all levels of achievement expected by the state. She is reading on a first grade level, math skills are on a first or second grade level. What a spectacular school.
I thought about sending my kids to a private school then they attended Collins Lane- why pay for a private school, this one is just as good!
This school is full of talented teachers and people who care about kids. We have a new principal in 2007-08, so the environment may be changing somewhat... hopefully, just a continuance of the same standard of excellence that Collins Lane has always strived for. At this moment, staff morale is good and hopes are high for continued success this year in CATS testing. The school itself is made up of mostly middle class to upper middle class caucasian students. Very small mix of other ethnic groups includes Hispanic, African American and Middle Eastern. The free and reduced lunch percentage is around 30%, which is just high enough to allow them to receive Title I funds for literacy and reading recovery programs. This would be my public school of choice for Franklin County, for sure.
