  • This is a great school and so are the teachers there. Mr. Mollet is kind of strict but he is cool. The teachers just do their job and want us to succeed. Of course Mr. Rangel is the best Counselor you can ever look up to. :)Also, Mr. Moreno, Mrs. Higuera, Mrs. Fiandaca, and Mr. Miller are the bestest teachers there. Oh, Mr. San Angelo who unfortunately had to leave the school. :(.... Class of 2011!!!!! diana olvera

  • Hated being a student here. Nothing but fights and stupid drama that the school clearly doesn't know how to take care of. Like another person said, bathrooms are disgusting. You walk in and there's tagging all over the place, urine all over the floor. Teachers are pretty nice but that's about it.

  • As with most schools.. Teachers will be good to those students who try to do their best. Colony H S has some great teachers and a couple of great counselors. The ELD and Fresman counselor for this year truly care about their students.
    I have two daughters that went to this school. One of them didn't try very hard and always complained that teachers were mean, until she started applying herself and trying harder, then the teachers were much nicer, since they noticed she was trying to do better.
    My other daughter is an outstanding student with a 4.5 GPA, and the honors and AP classes are not easy at all. She doesn't have complaints about her teachers at all.

  • It is hard to say colony hs has great staff... i have had great teachers but there are adults i met in that school that were very unfair and a students voice is ignored among that school... and i do have to admit that math teacher really do suck in that school and its really not fair for us students... im so glad im finishing up my school year because that school brings me more sad memories than happy memories and its all personal cant say why sorry...

  • I currently attend this school and yes it could be better but I can honestly say that its my home awway from home. Everyday I show up, and like most students,I am not looking forward to the initial start but once I get there I feel like I am around family.

  • there are perhaps a small handful of teachers and counslers who care about all the students. But like in other posts unless you are in sports, drama, asb forget it. The majority of teachers make it difficult for the average student. 1/3 of my sons senior english class failed making them unable to graduate and take summer school while a economics teacher passed everyone regardless what their grade was in class he lied when it came time to turn in grades. How fair is this. The only bright spot was this years senior counsler she was marvelous to us and really cared.

  • I hated every moment that my daughter went to this school. I was glad we moved out of the area in her Senior year.
    If your child is into organized sports, this is a great school. But the kids who don't or can't participate in sports (my daughter has a physical disability) try hard academically, but Colony doesn't emphasize academic achievements. The Math department is HORRIBLE. Last year a GREAT math teacher was recruited from Grace Yokley Middle School, but my daughter left that year and was never in his class.
    Horrible school.

  • I believe Colony is a great school. Of all the teachers I had in the past few years I've gotten along with all of them. There are very few teachers that are not good. The principal is great and welcoming. The school succeeds sports wise also. Students are challenged and many of my friends do well academically. I believe Colony is very good especially for being a newer school.

  • The renaissance department sucks, I can tell you that. Each individual student has to independently raise $200 for each semester and that is counting for 10% of their grade! The teacher claims that it goes towards Renaissance, yet there is no actual proof it does and by the way ASB does not have to do that. That is just wrong.

  • Colony High school is terrible. The basketball coaches are the worst, in their sport division. They curse and scream at the students, ridiculously. I am asking for one of the news stations to view this situation. It is all about who you know for your child to get onto a sport team. The school is very unsanitary. The bathrooms are disgusting. I am begging the health department to do a surprise visit.

  • Hello Dear Parents:
    I just need to know if anyone else has had a heck of time receiving accomodations for their child. If so, please share your experience with me.
    Thank you.

  • This school has the best teachers a student can ask for. Colony has great school supplies and a great library. The campus is beautiful and over all the Colony is an excellent place to learn. I makes me happy to know I attended Colony High.
