Colonial School District Reviews

In my experience, all the teachers are very well=trained and know how to deal with the students' academic and personal problems. The students are all kind to each other and try to include everybody in the events that are held. There are also many clubs and sports which allows students to choose what they would like to do on their free time while having fun and doing things they are interested in. The school also has many opportunities for students to branch out and do things that are otherwise out of their comfort zone. For example, there are many community service opportunities that would be hard to do on their own, but in school it's already planned out and they can still help people in their community with their peers.

My experience as a student has been overall pretty good. Nothing beats the staff at Colonial SD. My only real flaws are with some of the core curriculum at the high school. Some of the classes are poorly planned out and tightly scheduled because of a switch from a 4-block schedule to a 5-block schedule that happened a few years ago. Some teachers haven't adapted well to this change and it often manifests itself in frustrated students. Other than that I've had a good overall experience and I'm proud to be associated with such a district.
I liked the teachers in the colonial school district, they wanted to see students succeed and they put in a lot of effort to encourage student success. I would like to see the class dynamics of scheduling. There were so many classes in a day that it would be harder for students to really focus on one subject due to the fact that they were learning so little in small amounts of time due to the scheduling type. Block scheduling was immensely better because you had more time to ask questions and get a greater understanding of the material you were learning.
