School Reviews

  • Recommended May 21, 2012 - My son and daughter both go there. They were in private schools before and we feared the transition to public school. Collins Hill has made it so easy for. The staff and teachers have been amazing. They can walk home and do at times. It really is a great school. - Posted by Parent
