Careers at Collingwood

Unassuming: We prioritize our commitment to school-wide improvement and are genuinely interested in knowing our students very well and caring for them as if they were our own children. We meet our students’ needs with energy, patience, perspective, humility and good cheer.

If this describes you, we want to meet you!
