This school has prepared me very well for college and has really promoted school spirit and I have been to all the football games to support my friends playing and the other athletes. I am very involved in this school, as I am in six clubs, 11 AP classes, top orchestra, and the varsity tennis team. This school also has lots of diversity as it is one of the most diverse schools in Gwinnett county and even the state of Georgia. There is no supermajority race and it is pretty even overall. The teachers also care about the success of the students and help them get ready for tests and quizzes really well. There are also really nice sports facilities, a good fieldhouse, and good music and art rooms here. There are a few bit of school safety issues as people are stealing school property, which is about the only bad part. The school lunch is okay, but the custodians are friendly and care about the students.
My experience at Collins Hill High School so far is about as average as it gets. Something I love about it is Science, Technology, and Math department because it is the most updated department in the whole school. However, I don’t enjoy the cafeteria food because only four things on the whole menu is actually tasty, everything else is bland. Another thing that needs work is the required courses needed to take in order to graduate and the courses that are offered because there is not a large variety to choose from.
I attended Collins Hill my junior and senior years of high school. During that time, i met a lot of both detail oriented and passionate teachers who cared about both the subjects they taught and their students. Some teachers took more of an aggressive approach but over got to the point of the subject. I also met some teachers that liked teaching, but didn't like teaching high school age kids, which can cause conflicts. The CHHS AFJROTC program was by far one of most interesting group a people I met. Overall I met a lot of different people and learned a lot about life, a solid 7/10 experince.
While I did have some good experiences at Collins Hill but unfortunately, the lack of funding to the arts programs was disappointing and frustrating as an arts student. The majority of the school funding went to the football and sports extracurriculars, which didn't allow for a diverse range of education topics and clubs. The diversity and location of the school itself were wonderful, students get the opportunity to interact with individuals of different races, genders, religions, sexuality, etc., which is really useful for well-rounded and cultured social skills. The college readiness programs were really useful, and the counselors were generally helpful. Many of the teachers and classes were nice and educational, but unfortunately, not all of staff (including teachers AND administration) shared equal respect for students. Most AP teachers and programs were very helpful, especially many members of the STEM program such as Laura Herbig, one of my all time favorite teachers.
Overall, the school is very mediocre. One of the great things it has going is probably the diversity that it offers. You can see people from very different backgrounds attend this school, and they also host an annual culture night to celebrate the diversity here. The teachers are mostly nice and I have never had any major problems with the school.
I have been at Collins Hill High School since I was a freshman in 2017 to now, a senior graduating in May 2021! Collins Hill was a great school to further my education in as it gave me so many different classes and opportunities to choose from. I made strong connections with my teachers and I felt that Collins Hill was were I belonged. Our school mascot is an eagle and I will always been an eagle, even after I graduate. My teacher was the national teacher of the year in 2020, and for so many reasons. She shows that she cares about our students by interacting and listening to us. I will miss Collins Hill and the life I have built within it, but I am also excited for the new journey that I will be taking on after graduation.
The school building is very nice and well kept. It's not the best in terms of academics but there are some great teachers who make learning very fun. The environment is very friendly and a lot of students here share intent to learn.
Growing up only going to private schools, the transition to public was nerve racking. With the Covid-19 rules and regulations, I didn't know what to expect or what to do. Collins Hill knew that I was nervous and set out to give me the best first day experience. They made me feel welcome and warm, teachers greeting you in the halls, returning students waving and introducing themselves to me, and I even had multiple people take the time out of their day to walk to me to the classroom I was looking for. I've never felt more welcomed into such a new setting.
My experience with CHHS was pleasant. Throughout my high school years I have had amazing, supporting teachers. Collins Hill had many events such as cultural night which consisted of all the student body coming together and sharing their personal cultures through food, music, dancing and so much more. Being a mostly minority school, I think that Collins Hill thrives off of making all races, religions, and beliefs feel accepted through various forms of clubs and extracurricular activities. Being a minority myself, It was amazing to see how accepting the environment of my school was compared to others. All of the staff at CHHS are so friendly and truly did make my high school experience exceptional. I've become friends with many of the janitors and lunch ladies and have learned valuable lessons from them that I know I'll carry forever. Overall my experience at Collins Hill helped set me up for new opportunities as well as aided in molding my standards of learning. They set the bar high!
The counselors sometimes do not know how to help with certain issues but overall the staff is very considerate.
At Collins Hill High School, one of my favorite things was the diversity. There are so many different kinds of kids, different races, backgrounds, etc.
Collins Hill High-School is a very diverse school with incredible different ethnic backgrounds. I enjoyed the various different foreign students that transferred to our school. I enjoy the many different elective choices my school has, but I would love to see what relates to my career path. Overall the whole experience is very organized and well put together. I had a good experience there and made many friends.
Some of the teachers are good but lots of them were rude, overbearing, and the education was terrible.
I like the school. There is a lot of diversity within the school and there are teachers here that can actually help teach me and enrich myself with life advice.
It is the only high school I have ever attended. But it's not that great. I'm currently doing digital learning ,so I don't know what has change since the last time I was actively in school.
I really liked Collins Hill, I feel like it has a slot of diversity and opportunities for the students. One thing I was not very fond of was the culture within students. Some students don't care about their peers or school and they think that being involved in school events and their community is stupid.
Great school with many opportunities! Very clean and nice overall. I do wish there were a smaller student to teacher ratio.
