    "Collegium is good for showing off and not good for students who want to learn. Collegium focuses heavily on grades instead of learning. I pulled my children out of Collegium and enrolled them in our local public school. We are disappointed with Collegium as we tried to express our comments and got shunned by school administrators. One of the parents who wrote a previous review is correct. Charter schools are not for everyone."

    "I have a child in kindergarten at this school. I think she needs a full day of school as she was already nearly 6 when she started K. However this school has unrealistic expectations for such young children to sit still all day with minimal recess time. I have volunteered inside the school and was not pleased with how many very young teachers there are in the K-1 building who do not appear very experienced with disciplining children. Too many of these teachers basically just yell at their students all day long. The discipline at this school is also non sensical, there are very firm rules that can not be adjusted. For example one day the main traffic light leading to the school was out causing a major delay in drop off. Therefore we had to get a late pass coming into the building and even after explaining about the traffic light being out they still gave my child a late pass and she had to have time off of recess as punishment. Overall the curriculum appears to be good however I will be pulling my child out for 1st grade and will enroll her in the West Chester school district."

    "I was contacted the first week of school by the school psychologist, who had done a previous evaluation on my daughter, with concerns of her behavior. I immediately contacted the guidance counselor and had a meeting set up by the end of the week. The school has worked very diligently with me to get my daughter what she needs to be successful in school. We now have an IEP, they are trying to gain other services and there is always open communication. My daughters new learning support teacher is wonderful and keeps us updated and I can always reach out to the guidance counselor when necessary. The whole team has been very understanding and supportive. I am very excited for my daughter to be here. She does have an above average intelligence and I believe this school will give her the focus and challenges she needs. The school days are long and she is exhausted at night, but I am ok with my energetic little girl being able to easily fall asleep at 8pm. As for the long bus rides, I am not sure what families expect when this school buses for districts within a 10 mile radius."

    "This school was a bad choice for my family. Teachers refuse to hear your concerns and administration labels you trouble when you provide them with your feedback or suggestions. The last straw was when our children were being builled by older students. They mix buildings with younger kids and older kids together which is highly unacceptable. We pulled our children out in the first two weeks of school and they are much happier in our neighborhood public school."

    "We have been a part of CCS since our son was in 3rd grade when we transferred into here. He is an above average IQ, which is why we came here. He has been challenged and thriving ever since. He is now in the 8th grade. We have found the teachers for the most part to be amazing. Firm but fair. The curriculum is challenging, and they put student with their peers at their same level starting in 4th grade. No other public or parochial school will do that for your child. Spanish is great to learn, it is US 2nd language, press 1 for Spanish!?! Also their music programs are stellar! Pros of Collegium are the curriculum, teachers, and programs. Our son is an athlete, but we challenge him with travel teams to meet those needs. Cons- Some principals (but they are making strides here), long days are hard, and the bussing is LONG. Academically you will find the challenge amazing. I have many friends in other public schools and their children are just not learning like our children. We also have 2 in the Elementary school. Again, equally challenging. Good luck with your choice. I always say, pick the school that is right for your family."
