Open Quote Honestly the only bad reviews are coming from parents assuming things, collins is a great school. The only downside(if it even counts) is that some teachers are better than others, but its not even by that much. Close Quote

Open Quote Stay away from this school. I am willing to bet money that most of the teachers who work here are mentally ill and take out their personal issues and problems on the children and their parents. The principal wants to support her teachers due to her own arrogance and ego. I tried complaining about them and she took it out on me and my children. Other teachers who heard about my complains also retaliated against me for speaking up about how crappy this group of teachers are. You will not be impressed with their teachings. Most of the good test scores are because parents are enrolled in places like Russian School of Math and other tutoring centers. I would give this school a zero if I could. Tension, stress, disappointment, and disrespect from staff are the type of things you should expect from this school. Close Quote

Open Quote the best school, teachers, and kids you will ever find around! Close Quote

Open Quote An absolute nightmare to try to pick up my child afterschool in the Collins parking lot. If you are not there 20 minutes before school gets out, you cannot even enter the lot. After school gets out, it's another 20 minutes before the cars from Blaney Avenue are allowed to turn into the parking lot. Wear comfortable shows because you will have to park on a neighboring street and walk over to the campus if you want to pick up your child. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
