Columbia High School Reviews
The school has very good teachers and staff that are knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. However, there are few classes offered to challenge my education, and I ended up having to take courses through running start to get a challenge. I would like to see more and harder courses for future classes.
I did well here but I think I could have done well wherever I would have gone. The school is small so it can be both good and bad to know everyone and everything! You get to build strong bonds with those you meet and you usually fall into a category whether in athletic, artsy, dramatic or brainiest but when it came down to getting together we all blended well. The school as a whole could use upgrades and funding for better technology and to be able to give students other opportunities, but they get by. The staff for the most part are great! There are those whom have made a job of their career and no longer teach the person but the student. I guess that is what they are there for. Some teachers forget that they do and will leave a life time impression on their students. I am grateful for all those who took their time to educate me and ultimately for my supportive parent who did her part as well.
The teachers are great, and the academics are okay, but our building is falling apart. The walls in the biology lab and the band room are messed up because there was mold in the walls, our English teacher has to put a bucket on the floor when it rains because the roof leaks, and our auditorium doesn't meet safety codes. It's hard to get things done because the school has an overall aura of procrastination, and a lot of the time it seems like people- teachers and students both- don't care about the school, but the people are good and we get a refinished gym every year, so there's that.
