Colonial High School is a very bad school. There are drug pushers in the school along with gangs. The teacher cannot control the students. My son was bullied and no action was taken by the teachers or administration.

The school is horrible and it has a bunch of unknowledgeable children. My son complains that the environment is unsafe and it's hard to focus with teachers not controlling these very loud students. A lot of people are right. Colonial is a very bad school.
