I love Columbia Central! I moved there halfway through my junior year and I absolutely love the environment. I love partaking in musicals, marching band, and a multitude of extracurricular activities. The teachers are great and are very helpful with whatever it is you may need help with.

My overall experience at Columbia was pretty average. One thing I really did enjoy was academic programs and classes. I would, however, like to see more culture and diversity among students and staff at Columbia Central. Groups such as Student Senate, Plank, and Key club were enjoyable but they were some of the only groups/clubs that the students have organized. I feel that students are sometimes not the schools first priority. There is a lot that needs to be changed along the lines of the culture and environment but other than that, I would say that its a fairly decent school.
I liked Columbia a lot. Clean, safe atmosphere to learn. I loved the teachers and the sports were well kept with. I loved the opportunity to learn at the local college while still in hight school as well. I took advantage of that but it could have been offered sooner or at a greater capacity in order for it to benefit all students.
