I attended Columbia City High School as a student at Eagle Tech Academy. This is a branch off of the traditional school. Instead of sitting listening to lectures all day, students at Eagle Tech were able to be hands on and use their creativity to create life sized projects and plan out events. Students were able to be themselves and develop relationships with their peers and facilitators. The facilitators were more than just teachers. They encouraged students to work through their struggles and think outside the box. I would recommend Eagle Tech Academy for anyone!

The teachers and staff are truly amazing and have each students best interest in mind! However, the facility is old and rundown, with flooding and sometimes broken air conditioning. Thank gosh we get a new school, but unfortunately it doesn't have a pool, even though our swim team is the best athletics team we have....
I enjoy the teachers, and I am so excited about the new school! The old building is falling apart, the food is not the best but not bad. The teachers are all great, very safe community, but there are not enough parking spots.
