Collins Intermediate

Overview

Mission Statement

Collins Intermediate blends exemplary teaching, practices, research, and a focus on the needs of the total child to create an enriched learning environment. This commitment to academic excellence is complemented by the belief that parents are an integral part of the education process. In order to create a smooth transition from the elementary school to the junior high years, the highly successful “linking approach” is utilized. Child-centered, Collins Intermediate teachers provide students with differentiated instruction in a caring classroom.
