I went to Columbia Local Schools from kindergarten all they way through my senior year. My high school in the district was Columbia High School. I was here for my whole time in high school. I would highly recommend going to this school. It has a great group of students, teachers, and other staff. I formed many friendships here because everyone is so nice and open to new people. My teachers also prepared me very well for college and life after college. I also formed very good bonds with the teachers and staff as well. There isn't much I can say bad about this school. I loved it there and wouldn't chose anywhere else to go for school.

Columbia High School is a good overall school but is not a great school for kids that really want to excel and take higher level classes. The school only offers 3 AP classes. Most of the teachers are lazy and only are teachers so they can coach the sports teams. Most kids leaving the school do not feel ready for college. However, the staff is very nice and there is really not much bullying going on throughout the school.
The guidance office was very friendly and helpful. On the other hand, the AP calculus teacher was not very consistent. Better monitoring of the teachers would be good.
