I like the way they prepare you for college Speed. collins is a place to learn, and they like learning. collins also is a place to find other people your age, all gathered together, so it is a place to meet and make friends. For some students, school is the only place they can escape home, when home is bad. We are free to make our own choices at school.We can choose what subjects we want to do. If you are not interested in studying some subjects, you can opt for other things like music, art, or PE. You can join clubs and make friends with people who have the same hobbies as you. We can have fun, sing, talk and play games during breaks. School life is full of joy and laughter – something that cannot be found so easily later in life.

They Made Sure We Was College Ready Specially Ms.G She Went Above And Beyond For Us! Principal Sharpe Came And Literally Turned The School Around. She Has Been The Best And I Am Glad To Say She Was The Principal When I Graduated This Year!
I like that Collins Academy makes you feel comfortable, and everyone treats each other like family. I'd like to change the amount of participation of our after school programs and school events.
