Colfax high school is filled with students who love what they do and do everything. Most of the students are athletes, scholars, club members, volunteers, musicians, and more. I grew up in the school district and can say I am very grateful for all the teachers that really care about you and want you to succeed. I've received an excellent education including over 20 credits of college courses from them now as a senior in the high school. I also love my peers. I have so many friends, I don't think I can count them all. Colfax High School is a great place to learn and grow!

Colfax high school has amazing educational opportunities. The school offers many college classes which meet the expectations as if you were taking it at a university. The teachers are excellent and want nothing more than to set their students up for success. The athletic programs offered at Colfax are phenomenal.Our coaching staff is well known for pushing their athletes to be the best they can be. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in any or all of the clubs and activities. There is something for everyone. However, Colfax's small community results in a lack of diversity and culture. The school district could begin educating students about different cultures so that they could easily adapt to change after graduation. Overall, Colfax High School opens a world of opportunities for students and everyone should look into enrolling. It has a wonderful education program and receives tons of support from the small community.
I enjoy being a student at Colfax High School because of the smaller class, so you get more one on one time with your teachers. Also, Colfax High School is well known for being very competitive with its sports and clubs. Go Bulldogs!
