Central Columbia Senior High School Reviews
Rating 3.97 out of 5 156 reviews
For a small college town in rural Central PA that has two different school districts with two different High Schools, Central Columbia Area High School would not only compete with the larger wealthier districts, it would rank higher in almost every catagory. CCSD excels with its curriculum, staff, administrators, technology, resources, programs, athletics, extra-curricular activities, standardized testing scores, graduation rates, College acceptance rates, the arts, it's campus and it's safety. I moved to PA from NJ and only blossomed academically once starting middle school in the CCSD. In my previous school experience I struggled having great difficulty with all of my academic achievements and seemed to regress or stay stagnant instead of making clear improvements and steady progress that each school year should have prepared me to do. Immediately after starting in PA everything changed for the better! I am now an honor roll student who has been accepted to PSU! Thank you CCSD!
Central Columbia will provide you with a truly unique experience. From day one of high school, they prepare you for the future with a dedicated class to life outside of school. With countless electives to find your passion, you can most likely find something you love here. It also has excellent facilities for agriculture, and engineering. Through the engineering program, you can earn certifications in certain aspects of engineering. This is only a fraction of what our school has to offer in experience. In a nutshell, Central Columbia School District takes a unique approach to learning, teaches you things about about along the way, and helps you build connections in the real world.
My experience at Central Columbia overall has been the best four years of my life. I have made the friends that I truly believe will always be there for me and will be my best friends for the rest of my life. I play Field Hockey for Central and my final season just ended and we accomplished more than I ever could have imagined. Even though it has been tough this past year with the Corona Virus, I'm hoping to have a successful and joyful college education.
Very good school. The teachers are very helpful and encouraging. The school itself has great pride and everyone tries to keep the community a positive environment.
They have a pretty good pathway plan and a variety of elective courses. They tell you to work hard on credit requirements your freshman, sophomore, and junior year so you can free up your senior year to do internships or college classes. However, my senior year I finally got the classes I wanted and needed after three years of requesting them. My senior year was filled with a lot of electives that I don’t want or need but I had to take to fill up my schedule because of the school messing it up the first three times. I wasn’t able to take a college class due to me having courses I needed in the beginning and end of the day. My biggest issue with this school is scheduling. If you want to take all honors classes and art classes for your pathway, you’re not going to have an easy time with that.
My overall experience at Central was pretty good! For the most part, the teachers were pretty nice and the academics were good. By the time I reached my senior year, I felt pretty prepared for post-graduation plans.
My experience was ok but not great. They are pretty good at academics but other things could definitely be improved upon.
Teachers are great and make sure every student has an equal opportunity. Teachers know and understand how each student learns and does what they can to help.
I believe central Columbia senior high school is a pretty good school all around. It’s one of the highest rated schools in the area and is helpful in many ways.
This school is amazing. Has opportunities for everyone. The staff is so incredibly caring and are always doing their best to provide the best education!
I enjoyed how the school was very involved with us as students individually. They stayed concerned with our grades, whether we were involved in a club or sport and they checked up on our mental health often, especially during COViD-19 which is currently still a rough time for us current seniors. Central Columbia is basically one big family and they make it feel at home.
I enjoyed how the school felt like a family and how much the teachers cared about their students. They really showed compassion when I struggled with anything and showed pride when I succeeded. The administration was very understanding and kind to the seniors, especially during this COVID pandemic.
This school has a lot of high points as well as a lot of really big flaws. I feel as though this school does provide a very good education and also provides good supportive teachers and a safe environment. I do feel as though the school is very clique centered which the administration fuels. I also feel as though our administration is very quiet in our school. On a positive note we’re given a really good teaching for our future.
It is a very good school and it was a great district to grow up in. It’s very safe and they have amazing teachers. It’s not as diverse like it is at other schools around us.
Central Columbia is the only high school I’ve been to and I’m proud to have gone to this school. I would not want to go to any other high school. Great teaches and a great environment.
I am a transfer student and I had a great experience. The teachers are all really supportive and want what is best for us.
In the small town of Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania Central Columbia is a great school for any parent's child. In Elementary school I learned how to read, write, solve simple math equations, and how to make friends. When middle school came, I learned about multiplying/dividing, space, American culture, and right from wrong. I remember being so excited for high school, being in the "big kid" school, and finally being able to call myself a freshman. Throughout my four years there I can finally say high school was a truly enlightening experience. Freshman year was great, I loved my teachers, friends, and the sports/activities I was involved in. When sophomore year began, I can remember not wanting to go back. I didn't have many friends and felt alone and lost. Fast forward to senior year, I couldn't wait to get out of here and by the time I blinked Graduation was upon me and tears fled my eyes in remembrance of all the years at Central.
