The current administration at the high school and lack of knowledge about NCLB has caused a serious decline in the quality of the teaching staff. The turnover rate is alarming and the children leaving the district is at an all time high.

Just FYI: Collinsville High School as well as the Elementary ratings have been Exemplary or Recommended-academically the past 5 years. Turnovers occur in a smaller school when you have a motivated faculty or administration that wants to move to a larger school where the pay scale is higher. This is a normal characteristic of the school world. Moving to Collinsville from the city has provided an incredible lifestyle for my children. I knew no one before we moved and was welcomed to this town with open arms. My children have teachers with high expectations but willing to help when needed. There is always room for improvement but it takes everyone pulling together not putting others down. Make a positive stand for the school by getting involved!

Well this may seem a little different coming from a gentleman's point of view! But, I think partly what the other nice people said Is partially true. Let's start with the Elementary. Grades 1-4 have a few very good teachers with Individualism that really stands out. The Middle School 5-6 has an excellent Math and Science teachers. The Science teacher has a doctorate in Science which I consider outstanding. And the other teachers are ok as well. Also, the new principle for grade school is outstanding. This principle is working on her doctorate and has been a Superintendent in North Dallas. The Jr.High and High Schools are all together and it's outrageous from there. The people in this town are very stuck up. If you didn't go to school and wasn't raised here Stay Away Its For Your Own Good!

There are plenty of extracurricular activities--so many in fact that the academic program is negatively affected. Parents have been very involved in the sports program but have helped cause instability in the school itself. High staff turnover and poor administrative leadership have resulted in a somewhat below-average high school. However, a new principal in 2004--2005 has brought better discipline and increased focus on academics. Under his leadership, the school is definitely improving. However, parents who want a top-notch academic school should probably go elsewhere.

I am a student at this school so I know a bit about it. We have a band and flag corp. We have an okay athletic program. Our girls volleyball team is pretty good, and the basketball and softball is'nt to shabby either. We also have a few tracksters and powerlifters. This year we also got cross country. The boys have football, basketball, baseball, powerlifting, and track. The football team is'nt the best, but its still fun to watch them. We have some nice teachers. Most are willing to tutor you if your having trouble.

Athletics are above everything and no other activities are very well funded or available. It has a bad atmosphere. Many teachers are fanactics about the required state testing, teahing to pass the test and not original in their teaching techniques. Fits all bad sterotypes of a small school and none of the good. My child is in another school now and is flourishing. This school was a nightmare experience.

This schoollacks leadership required to make a small school perform. My child was told in elementary school that she was 'gifted and talented' yet she was never given any coursework that was gifted and talented or accelerated. The school 'reinstated' their Honor Society just last year, but has no 'honor' courses programs. They do offer 'dual' courses in high school that allow for college credits, but the only electives offered at the school for 7th grade are drama or band. They has slipped academically the last two years - exemplary to recognized for TAKS scores.
