​​​​​Attention Prospective Kindergarten Parents!

Do you have a rising kindergartener? If so, you don't want to miss one of our four upcoming Open Houses designed to answer all of your questions about the benefits of a dual language Spanish immersion program! At Collinswood, students receive instruction in both English and Spanish and are fully fluent by the time they graduate. Check out this video about Collinswood produced and edited by Collinswood eighth-grade students.

The first dual language sc​hool in North Carolina, Collinswood has been recognized locally, nationally and internationally for its high academic success, commitment to diversity, and quality of program. In 2014, Magnet Schools of America selected Collinswood as one of the top five magnet schools in the country. From kindergarten to eighth grade, Collinswood provides a challenging and loving environment to help every child grow and thrive.    ​
