The staff were primarily fantastic. Caring educators and a fantastic school counselor. Unfortunately, the teachers are not given much in means of solving situations, nor do I believe the school is prepared to deal with student emergencies or emergencies of any kind. Facilities are poor and class opportunities were vague. There is the fortune of being able to take community college classes while still in high school.

Collins-Maxwell Community has really come together in the past few months to support the school. I see new and exciting things happening at Collins-Maxwell MS/HS. The administration, staff, and school board are working with students, parents, and the community to make this one of the best small schools in the state of Iowa. There is a lot of pride in this school. It is the beginning of a new era...the Spartans. 1:1 technology, STEM classes, academic opportunities for higher education credits, caring teachers, etc.
This is a good school. It is small, so you get to know teachers and get a somewhat personalized education. The students and staff are friendly, the academics are good, and it's a generally good school to go to.
