About Collister

animated eagleNestled between Catalpa Park and the back-drop of the Boise Foothills is a school steeped in over 100 years of pride and tradition.  Collister is strong in academics, athletics, art, community, music, and extracurricular activities.  As a professional community, we learn, care, and celebrate the steps that each and every one of us take in our growth toward a positive and productive school environment.

Parenting and teaching are the most important jobs in the world. Both require conviction, communication, and consistency. As parents and teachers working together, we can and will move and improve students at Collister Elementary School.
