Things I liked about Collins. Academy was that it was a small school so everyone knew each other. We were like a close knit family. When you didn’t understand something the teachers, principals, all administration was there to help. They were very helpful and definitely encouraging.
Overall I love this school, but the changes I would love to see made is mainly students academics some students are not college ready and they need that extra push from teachers to get them there. Also, resources we really do not have that much sources we can go to for help like with homework, essay, etc and students safety is a big issue just because of the community we are in, its not the school I feel safe in its the area we are located at.
