Collinswood Language Academy Ratings & Reviews

I have a 5th grader and a 6th grader. They have been there since Kindergarden and First Grade and all I have to say is that Collinswood Language Academy rocks! I have never had a problem with teacher communication or support. They teach kids to be responsible adults and their valuable life lesson are visible in everyday life.

I wish teacher turnover wasn't so high and teacher support was better. We've had hits and misses with teachers. One year we'll get a really good teacher that communicates with parents and is engaged, the next we'll have another that doesn't seem engaged at all and won't communicate or encourage parental involvement with school work at home! There needs to be more consistency on the teaching model and philosophy of parent involvement/communication and support. As a result, school performance scores have slipped considerably in the last two years, growth goals have not been met for the first time this past year and I'm somewhat concerned in the direction the school is currently going and will be going forward....

As a former CMS teacher, I was knowledgeable about the different schools and programs available. We chose Collinswood over our top-notch home school because it provides all of the things that are important to our family - academics, character development, diversity and global citizenship. Our oldest is now a bilingual 2nd grader who is also a part of the TD program - and we could not imagine being happier at any other school. The staff is caring and involved (we have had a couple of extraordinary teachers already). When the previous principal, Ms. Grant, visits the school she still remembers the kids' names and whose parent you are! Can't wait for my youngest to attend!

Love the diverse student body, Spanish immersion, great test scores, code of conduct, dress code, high expectations. Don't like the lack of teacher support and notification when your child is deficient in a subject. They are quick to give poor or failing grades. They keep test scores up by suggesting you might be better off at a non language immersion program if your kid is performing poorly. I know of several kids who were asked to leave for this reason. If you are not willing to be VERY involved in your child's school work, do not send them here. If you are willing, definitely send them here. It will be worth the effort.

I attended several Open Houses in Jan. The Collinswood presentation was very test score heavy - it's all they talked about! Other schools' touted their community / family approach to the whole child. Standardized tests carry less weight on how a student actually performs academically & teachers are deterred from "teaching to the test." The WORST part of the presentation was when an Administrator got up to speak on second language acquisition (as if he got the Cliff notes) - he proceeded to tell the audience how Common Core is the curriculum they follow. If you didn't catch that - Common Core is NOT curriculum - it's standards and standards are used to create curriculum. If you're in the education field (as he was)- this is an egregious error to communicate to potential parents. Finally, I randomly met a teacher from Collinswood at a social gathering - I told her where my child was attending school upon her inquiry and she literally gave me a disgusted look and said "that's too bad." If that's the attitude from faculty - who wants their child to learn such rudeness and arrogance? The one positive is the students and current parents I spoke with and met were happy for the most part.
