Collinsville is pretty innovative in its approach to education as far as scheduling and its classroom teaching. It hasn't always been like this but their are more and more teachers at this school that do a really good job. Great scores too.
Collinsville has the best school system in the area. They have very high test scores and the staff truly care about the welfare of the students. They make yearly improvements and seem willing to hear input. I do wish they had improved facilities at the HS but I love Collinsville!
I went to school here and I must say that there is a big difference in what was and what is now. I have been very impressed by how much the teachers care about the kids. It's not just a job, they really care. The principles and administration are also very supportive and the needs of the children always come first. I am very pleased with our school.
The worst problem here is the counselors. Schedules are always wrong. If your child qualifies for OHLAP you better keep track of it yourself because the counselors don't have a clue how to make sure your kids have the required classes and don't really seem to care.
I went to school here and there is no way I would send my future children here. It is possible to go through this school and not learn a thing. I am in college currently and I had to teach myself to study because I never had to CHS. Terrible choice for your children.
