24 Parent Reviews for Colina Middle School

So happy we switched to Colina. My current 8th grader is finally getting challenged in math and is receiving a broader and more in depth learning experience - unlike his last 2 years at Oaks Christian. Similarly my 6th grader who was getting bullied in a small Montessori school is getting the support ...  Read more

Perfect place for our 7th grade son. He is an above average student (A to B+), who works twice as hard as naturally intelligent kids, but the teachers help him get through the curriculum and he loves the environment. He wants to perform to be at this school where the staff makes him feel welcome. Yes, ...  Read more

My son will be returning to his old school next fall. Colina is a huge disappointment. He was new to the school and has had children throw erasers at him during class (where was the teacher?), called names, pushed in the hall, etc. On top of this, the taxpayers have given them great online programs ...  Read more

The school is amazing, The leadership is empowering and the teachers are, for the most part, very dedicated and challenging. The parents and students who complain are entitled and should consider the private schools in the area. It is clearly the best public middle school in Ventura County.

Colina is a wonderful school. The priniciple is one of the nicest involved principle I have ever experienced. We are so lucky we are able to attend this school. The school continues to keep my son challenged with school work and they are very concerned about drugs and bullying which is a real plus! ...  Read more

This is a response to the post about book distribution on 1/7/2012. Your statement "Colina honored all requests" to distribute books is inaccurate. My spouse and I happened to be at the counseling office one day prior to our scheduled book pickup day. We requested to pickup books that day since we ...  Read more

When I think about my children and school I think first of their safety, then their health, their education and finally their happiness. Against all four of these key areas I can say that Colina Middle School has surpassed any of the others schools my children have attended.Several of which were federally ...  Read more

Speaking as a student who has is currently attending Colina Middle School, I have seen various levels of courtesy and patience from the staff members. It is my belief (and it is very much appreciated) that all school staff members should have an optimistic attitude and should be willing to help. However, ...  Read more

This school is a gamble. One year you may get lucky and have a good instructor and another year get some really bad. As a prior reviewer already stated, you'll get lip service in order to appease your complaints. Unfortunately the school is unable to resolve the issues with poor quality instructors ...  Read more

I agree with the prior review the office staff is incredibly rude but they don't teach my child so I'll try to overlook that. My child was in all honors, it's a mix bag here when it comes to the teachers. He has had some of the best teachers here and worse. The problem is when you complain about a teacher, ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
