I would rate this school a 1 out of 10 because the experience with many teachers have been negative. There are teachers here who deserve high marks. They are far and few between.

I rather have teeth cleaned by a sadistic dental hygienist, everyday all day long than go motions at this zombie circus.

I can't say enough good things about this school! First, Mr. Frank and the entire administration is wonderful. They are organized, responsive, and understanding. They hold students accountable and really help them grow into responsible young adults. I have been extremely impressed with the teachers. The work is challenging and my son has learned so much this year. I am looking forward to my daughter attending Colina next year!

I have attempted to post reviews on Colina before and they seem to have been removed, as have others that said negative things about the principal and staff at Colina Middle School. I have seen two kids through this school and would appreciate having an opportunity to post a review. This school is average, 30% of the teachers are exceptional (particularly those who teach the honors track), 30% are coasting until retirement. The school does not tolerate bullying, and the staff is, as others report, incredibly rude. The major complaint I have is the absolute level of disorganization. The staff cannot seem to manage any simple logistical activity from distributing or collecting text books to managing simple events. The communication skills of the volunteers and staff are lacking. Overall, the school wastes about 15-20% of school time on nonsense tasks that should take an hour or two. The last week or two of school is a waste because they collect books and stop teaching well before the end of the year. There are minimum days, pupil-free days, random holidays. Many teachers choose to schedule elective surgeries with drawn out "recovery times" between November and April. Overall, most teachers seem to work 6 or 7 hours/day about six or seven months/year. The school grounds are locked up like a penitentiary until just before school starts and within minutes of the end of the school day. My kids had no time to go to the library or socialize because they are being ushered out of school (and into paid childcare on site) a few minutes after the bell rings. Schools ought to be a place for kids to be from 8 to 4, Mon-Fri, 9 months/year. Period. This era has ended, teachers are treated like wounded servicemen with extensive vacations, and kids are funneled into service for pay. I suppose this is a lament about the state of public education more than about Colina. I suppose other schools are the same. My kids connected with several of the teachers and enjoyed the experience overall. Test scores are ok to good. Very bright kids are not terribly stimulated and science is somewhat lacking. If you have a very bright kid or learning disabled kids consider other options. If you are easily frustrated by complete disorganization, consider other options. Otherwise, you will be ok with Colina.

Mr. Frank has a zero tolerance policy for bullying between students and teachers. He addresses any issue head on and always makes time for parents and their concerns. He is an amazing principle and really cares about his school. He is at almost every single event the school has, even on nights and weekends. He engages and interacts with every child there and you can tell he cares so much for these kids. Colina was the best choice I could have made for my son. He is supported by the entire staff and has amazing teachers that inspire him on a daily basis. I am sad he will be graduating this year. I will never find another school like Colina. Jen D
