The teachers are engaging, the principal involved and active and the staff is friendly. My child gets what she puts into her learning career as it should be.

The faculty at COL does an excellent job. Breaking up fights and getting hurt in the process should NOT be a job requirement. COL has one of the most caring staff members at COL, and he has to break up fights on a constant basis. Did anyone ever think about not blaming the SCHOOL, but instead keeping ...  Read more

Excellent School.. My child is a Honor Roll Student (Straight A's). I moved here from an excellent school in New Jersey and I can not complain about this school. Students are polite, well mannered and bullying is not tolerated. I am a proud parent.

The drama teacher is awesome. I was told by the last vice principal during her 7th and 8th grade year that I was too involved ...  Read more

The orchestra teacher is very impressive and gets his students to progress. The overall Arts program has improved ...  Read more

I had heard wonderful things about this school, but quite honestly, I haven't experienced any of it. The majority of my son's teachers have definately 'checked out'. The progress book is a big joke in my eyes as teachers 'don't have the time' to enter homework, notes etc. onto it. I have had parent/teacher ...  Read more
