    "You will be *very* prepared for college if you atteND this school. The curriculum is paced to provide a 9th grade public education in the 7th grade."

    "As a former Collegium Student, I must say that Collegium Academics are top notch. I recently transferred to public school from Collegium, and everything I learned at CCS has given me a clear advantage in high school. Collegium's focus on writing is what has really helped me to excel, because CMQ essays are written in every subject, not just English. This is important, because writing is not just for English, it is for every subject. For Chemistry Lab reports, for Analytical History Essays, and for practically everything you do in school, knowing how to write using good word choice, organizational skills, and within a time limit are essential skills that get a special focus at Collegium. Collegium's Spanish program is also far more advanced than at public school, which is important seeing as the population of Spanish speakers is ever rising in America. Most importantly is the special community Collegium has created. It is a small environment with tiny class sizes, inspiring teachers, and a student body with familial bonds. Collegium is a special place, and I do not regret any of my years there, especially considering its great prep for public school (I'm in the top 10 at my school)."

    "I started at CCS as a kindergartner in 2000 and continued at the school until I graduated in 2013. I have seen some concerns as to the school itself and how it runs things. In my thirteen years as a student at this school it has not only prepared me for college, but fueled my desire to become a teacher similar to those who taught me throughout the years. To address some of the concerns from parents in previous reviews: 1. The costs for yearbooks and field trips are due to the school needing to pay for the costs of transportation which require paying for buses, drivers, and gas. Yearbooks are expensive, due to there being a small student population. 2. Bullying: I was a victim of cyber bullying, and I can say that they treated the incident in a timely manner and did not punish the victims as others have stated. In fact, the teachers there provide the students with a great support system. 3. The quality of education is quite good. When looking at the past two graduating classes several students have gone to Ivy League sister schools or highly accredited schools in their fields. In my opinion, the school does prepare students for college and beyond."

    "My child had a wonderful nurturing k-1 experience with his class and teachers. This school however is not the best school if your child does not test well. Their final grades are weighted heavily on their C M Q tests which account for much of their grade even if they do well in all their quizzes. Also you are expected as a student to be very independent with the amount of work and studies at an early age. That being said the teaching staff is wonderful and everything down to the fundraising is organized. My child is happy and has many friends at this school but is having a hard time with the exams which are negatively effecti b good his score for each subject"

    "There is a lot I can share about this school and its leadership, but just in brief ... There may be ONLY two good reasons for you to send your child there: 1. Their Kindergarten options and flexibility are (still?) somewhat attractive and interesting 2. To avoid Coatesville School District - if you're from the area perhaps you know what I mean?! ...; Other than the above - NOTHING else, so make no mistake or you will regret it!"
