My child, now a 4th grader, has been at CCS since Kindergarten. He has an IEP, is excelling academically, and loving his school experience. As a whole, Collegium teachers are dedicated, nurturing and supportive. I sure hope this continues throughout middle school and beyond. As long as our child is happy there and doing well, we are planning on seeing him graduate from CCS!

Collegium Charter school offers an alternative for families living in the Coatesville School District. The curriculum is challenging and the teachers are committed to developing students to perform their best. Parents support the school, and teachers are held accountable to meet educational goals. As a former elementary educator, parent, and taxpayer, I am pleased that my child has this opportunity.

I don't understand the parent comment about spec. needs kids getting "pushed out." My child has an IEP and has been at Collegium for 9 years - they go above and beyond to be sure that his needs are met. Beyond this, the school is great! Strong MS/HS curriculum that is preparing my child for college - high expectations of all kids.

Collegium offers little support to special needs children and their families. They do everything possible to push special needs children out. Administration hides behind their “policies”. Their actions are disgraceful, even to the point of discriminatory.

My experience so far is only with the elementary school, but I could not be happier. The teachers we have had are exceptional and the curriculum, including Spanish, art and music, is far above what I am seeing in the surrounding districts. Parent involvement is one of the keys to Collegium's success. All in all, they truly have found a winning formula!

K thru 6 - They have fantastic, dedicated teachers and the curriculum is right on the mark. When you reach Middle and High school, there is a marked differance! That is all I will say.
