I’ve been in the colonial school district since the first grade, and I am currently a senior in high school. Excluding middle school, I had an extremely positive overall experience with the school district and feel very prepared to start college next year as a result of the opurtunituesbthey presented me with, and the mostly compassionate and helpful teachers/administrators/coaches I’ve encountered in high school. They’re always striving for improvement and you can tell much of the faculty really cares about seeing you succeed.

It was awesome! They had an amazing culinary arts program starting in middle and through high school. I wish they would improve community relationship,a lot of parents don't support the schools mission as a district.
The good thing about Colonial School District has always been student teacher relationships, but also the bad thing too Relationships can be beneficial for students who have found teachers that they can go to but some students have had teachers as enemies. Also bad with money spending. Needing two referendums in less than five years Colonial has been spending money irresponsibly and do not have their priorities in order when it comes to the students, with threatening to take away programs having to do with majors and careers.
