Collingswood High School Reviews

I attended Collingswood High School for my junior and senior year. It's a good school overall with a lot of activities to get involved in (I took part in the school plays). There are a lot of great teachers who really care about their students. My only real complaint about the school is that it was a little difficult to acclimate as a new student, seeing how everyone else at the school had known each other for years and had all grown up in Collingswood together, but that's how most schools in small towns are. Overall, its a pretty decent school- you get out of it what you put into it!

The teachers and staff at Collingswood High are some of the nicest and most helpful people that you'll ever meet. There is also a good selection of AP courses available and courses that are not offered in the traditional class format may be taken online if students are interested or do not have room in their schedules. Furthermore, CHS is a SAT test location, making it very convenient for students to take the SAT and some subject tests. In terms of the school's facilities, CHS is located right near Knight's Park with multiple fields, has 7 tennis courts, 2 outdoor basketball courts, and a track. The actual classrooms themselves have a decent amount of space, but the hallways and stairwells do tend to become cramped between classes and there is a long wait is to be expected in the lunch lines.
This school is a great school to get a foundational education for your potential future in either continuing your education. Student voice is a major part of the culture at CHS and this is a leading district in making change in the public educational system in NJ. As with any school, there are flaws such as ignorant teachers or privileged students, but this needs to change. There is also a lack of diversity implemented in the curriculum for ALL levels of education, however, the school is working to change this in the future. I expect good things from CHS in the future and the scholarships are plentiful here. They also offer a cafe in the school and have several classes which other districts in the area do not offer such as: AP Art History, Film Production I and II, crafts, and social justice courses.
