    Collet Park ES has a very supportive staff and administration. They are committed to the children. It is a safe environment and the children enjoy the experience.

    This school is average...It used to be a five star rating but has declined in the past two years. If you are looking for children activities parent nights an active school in the community this school does not have that any more. Teachers are awesome but it is not the same.

    It is the best school in ABQ! My children all loved it and went away with so much from there!

    It's a small school where parents have the ability to be hands-on and take an active role in their children's education.

    Because of the passion of the teachers there they really love teaching our children.

    What impresses me at this school is the hard working teachers. They put an unbelievable amount of time and effort into preparing for their teaching day!

    I have two kids ending their second year at this school. their teachers are great one is a little more strict than I prefer though. Mr.Alzaga was a great principal but is now gone wo we will see what happens.

    My son transferred mid-year from an APS charter school that was just too far to go. While I feel he was learning much more at the charter CP has been a good alternate choice for him. The teachers are genuinely involved and will interact with each other concerning kids they've had. It is unfortunate that we're losing our principal. That can potentially wreck a good school. We will miss you Mr. Alazaga!

    My son is so happy. We love this school. The community of people at Collet Park are so kind and want the best for their children. There are also many parent volunteers in the classrooms. Parent Volunteers keep teachers on their toes. If a teacher is comfortable with volunteers then they are comfortable with their teaching.

    I have 2 daughters at CP a kindergardener and a first grader and I am so happy with everything about our school! We have a great staff and the teachers are exceptional. Our PTA is very active in school activities and my childreh couldn't be happier (they even want to go to school when they're sick)Our parents and community are also very active (out of ~400 students we have a 100-member PTA and good turnouts for our events. We get lots of support from Community Partners. Our library is thriving under the direction of Leslie Mulcahy and our principal Mr. Woody has great rapport with students and an open-door policy for parents and staff. Good Job Collet Park!
