    "Collins Elementary is very mediocre school. My children came from one of the best schools in the state of Florida end Collins has no comparison to their previous school. Academically children are not challenged enough, my kids were straight A students before now they are slipping down to B and C because the teachers don't care. The PTO is a joke, all their events are poorly organised and not enough parent involvement. My kids were riding a bus without air conditioning and we are in FLorida, it gets really hot for the most part of the year. Parents keep calling the school but so far nothing is done about it. Last year a girl fainted coming out of the hot bus. The cafeteria is awful, the personnel treats the children very badly, the food is not enough and when the 5th graders come for lunch at 12.30 most things are gone. Not to mention that the regular milk is constantly bad. I will not recommend this school to anybody!"

    "Love Collins! In my opinion, what makes Collins great are the Principal, Mr. Simms, and Assistant Principal, Ms. Madill. Responsive, caring, warm - if you've ever had the opportunity to speak with either of them, you get the sense that they genuinely love and respect their jobs. For as large as a school as it is, I feel like they know the students, all of them! And, if those in charge are so wonderful, what does that tell you about the other staff/faculty that are employed there - just fantastic!"

    "I have just moved to the RIVERVIEW area from a very small town in TN. I have 2 daughters ages 6 and 9 the 6 yr old will be in K and the 9 yr old is going into the 4 th grade !! My 9 yr old is ADHD and has had a rough past year since we lost my husband and their dad in an accident and witnessed the tragedy!! She had a lot of problems staying focused In our small community school in Tn. It isn't that she isnt smart because she is a very bright and mature 9 yr old but the ADHD and the emotional problems wouldn't let her stay focused on her studies !! I don't know anything about the schools here and when I look up what school they should attend it tells me SUMMERFIELD CROSSINGS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL which is very close to where we live actually It's not even a half a mile from us but I want them to go to a good school where they can learn and have teachers that understand the struggles of ADHD AND THE EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS DAUGHTERS HAVE BEEN FACED WITH SO I AM ASKING FOR ANY ADVICE ANY ONE HAS TO OFFER ON WHICH SCHOOL WOULD BE BEST FOR THEM !! Thanks in advance !!!"

    "I can imagine what the poster meant by "pleasure" through my own brief experience. My child had two subjects with this teacher and the homeroom teacher taught the others. The homeroom teacher had the other conducted one of her parent teacher conferences. Talk about night & day. She only focused on the negative and seemed to make a huge effort to find fault ( your child is a little chatty - don't I know that? they do great, but ) and spoke to me in a condescending tone throughout the whole conference. My child is an A student with top FCAT/SAT scores & extremely well behaved. He is not perfect; and I ve acknowledged his weaknesses with his teachers. I ve never had anyone speak to me in that manner before. Sure, every kid has their faults, but her approach was awful and made me glad she was not his main teacher. I have had mostly great experiences with teachers there. My children have never complained about any of them and I m sure this one does what s required of her job."

    "I LOVE this school! It was soooo sad to leave! You will LOVE this school here.The staff is incredibly nice, and they plan big and fun events and fundraisers all the time! The teachers give you different strategies on how to learn things, and those strategies certainly help out in the future! I still use the "touch-math" method from 1st grade! The only thing is that parents may have difficulty helping children on their homework because they learned it differently. Also, this school is very big on FCAT. They put a lot of weight on your shoulders about it, and say its no big deal. Other than that, this school is great. I have had lots of memories here, made tons of friends, (some even from different grades) and if you are going into 5th grade at this school, your last year here will be amazing!!!!"
