Central Columbia is a pathway school that allows you to explore areas of interest that might lead to a career. The teachers are among some of the best and extremely helpful! Administration is good and cares about the well-being of all of its students. Central Columbia has prepared me for college and offers many opportunities to earn college credit before graduating high school.

Central Columbia has an outstanding facility staff who will meet your needs before their own and will put you first as their number one priority. Central Columbia has improved many pathways to help students succeed in agriculture and engineering. Central maintains an above average standardized test score reputation as well as maintaining the safety of its students. Bullying is one of Central's top concerns. On a monthly basis Central will put together emails, presentations, articles, and guest speakers addressing the topic. Although we have an outstanding guidance counselor, Mr. Bartholemew, who goes above and beyond for his fellow students and peers it isn't quite enough. As I have been a victim of bullying and have become a person with few friends I have begun to understand how lonesome and dangerous bullying and neglect can become. One aspect Central lacks is how little they try to make everyone feel welcomed and wanted during their school day.
Central Columbia High School is a pathway-based school which helps students find out what they want to do later in life. The wide variety of classes, clubs, and activities available show students what interests them, what they dislike, what they would like to pursue, or what they would like to change in their schedules to get them on track. Pathways ranging from music, to art, to engineering, to welding, and many more, give many different opportunities to students. This school is great when considering students futures.
