The teachers and staff at Colony Middle School are absolutely fantastic. I love that you can go online and keep up with your child's progress and stay on top of any improvements that need to be made. I also love that they have a NO TOLERANCE for ANY type of bullying and they take care of any issues IMMEDIATELY. My daughter's grades have improved tremendously since attending this school and she's even made the Honor Roll! I couldn't be happier!
