Collierville High School
Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

Individual teachers are fine since most were highered by the previous Principal. Anyone hired by Blanchard should be afraid

Hornwork is fine. We have a teacher that no shows for her tutoring hours since she has a baby shower to go to. Then still gives the test and won't help. It's the atmosphere that drags them down

This comment doesn't even pertain since in order to have grit and determination, they need to care. There is no care. Principal responds to emails with one sentence. Assistant principal just parrots why the Principal tells him to say. No one listens

They have zero respect for students. Students are a burden to the admin and the quicker they can move them out of their hair, the better

Counselor admits that they don't remember kids who have visited several times with the same concerns. Counselor gives cut and paste responses to emails and just repeats herself with no compassion to kids who are crying in her office

Administration does not care one bit about fairness. It's only fair if it is easier for them and less work since they are overwhelmed. Principal literally tells parents that it doesn't matter what they think.

Collierville High is a mess. The new administration does not care about kids - they are in pure survival mode. Principal Blanchard doesn't listen and is a bully. This place used to be great, but unless they eliminate Blanchard, they are going down hill. Don't send your kids here. They pretend to have great programs but the staff and counseling care very little.

It pains me to give a poor rating to CHS. I graduated from here and now my kids are students. Before last year (2014-2015), I would have rated them great; however the new administration, specifically the principal Mr. Blanchard, assistant principals Mrs. Hynes and Mr. Heinrich, are not of previous administration quality. It is sad that Collierville faught so hard to become their own school district to have CHS be run as it currently is. CHS claims to be against bullies, yet their own administration are the biggest bullies at the school. It goes beyond just students to disrespect and vendictive behaviors toward parents and even their faculty. Teachers with high ratings for all previous administrators are suddenly getting poor ratings. The only factor that has changed has been administration. The demeanor at the school has plummeted and the Superintendent and school board members are aware, but have chosen to support the bullies instead of the victims. It is a disappointing time for Collierville Schools and the more these individuals are allowed to use their power for evil, the more those that have no voice will suffer.

An incredible experience at this school with teachers that prepared me incredibly for college coursework. Could not have asked for a better high school education to prepare me for the world beyond graduation. Any negative reviews of this school need to be taken with a grain of salt. More than likely these folks had a rare bad experience and are looking to tarnish and otherwise sparkling reputation as one of the best schools in the state. I will say that to get the best teachers, students should take Honors or AP classes. If you believe that your child cannot handle that coursework, put them in a few of those classes to test the waters, because the level of care and attention kids in those classes get is definitely worth it. The Honors coursework is definitely challenging, but from those challenges comes immeasurable growth both academically and personally. As a recent graduate, I highly recommend Collierville High School, and with the new facilities being built in the near future, this school will be looked at with envy across the country.
