Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have a daughter in 2nd grade at collins. Mrs Tencate's class and she is absolutely wonderful. Mrs Armbruster was her 1st grade teacher and she was the greatest. We are moving out of state and we are very sad. All of the teachers are fantastic, the office staff are great, and the principal knows every student. It has been a fantastic school....We will miss collins.....

I have a child in Mrs. Libra's third grade class and he just told me what a great third grade year he has had and I quote, 'Haven't I been lucky to have such great teachers at Collins?' He has been truly blessed by all the teachers he has had there and they have done a great job helping him to make great strides academically while helping him learn to handle his ADD at the same time.

How much can I say about this school, its teachers, administrators, and staff!!!!! My kids have been nurtured, loved, pushed, and even taught through the endless patience and skill of these incredible educators. I have 2 high achievers, both of whom have found teachers ready, willing and able to push them and love them and help them learn and grow and achieve. We love Collins!
