Teaching staff is good. Principal runs the school with her personal agenda which is not necessarily good for the children. Best thing that happened to the school district was when the superintendent left. (Pete Injusolian)

The principal does not care for the well being of children. She runs the place like a boot camp. She even told 2nd and 3rd grade girls she was going to put cameras in the bathroom stalls. She needs to go if they want collins to be a great school.

I had alot of trouble with this school and that is why my wife and I pulled our daughter out after only one year.

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level: 3

Test Year: 2013
Collins Elementary School
Houghton Lake Community Schools
* In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
