I love the environment at Columbia River High School. I’ve had no issues with teachers so far. The school campus is well taken care of. Bathrooms, classrooms and the outside are clean. One change that would help the school, is to have counselors reply to emails quicker. Other than that, this school is amazing!

Columbia River is a good school. They offer the IB program for the Vancouver school district. The school also offers four language options which includes Spanish, German, French and American Sign language. There are plenty of opportunities to join various clubs and participate in many sports. There are several parent led clubs that help support our sports team as well as other aspects of the school including a parent led music association that supports the music program. This school is a smaller school that allows you to know everyone. The culture is supportive and encourages acceptance in diversity. All staff are welcoming and helpful and encourage students to be successful. Overall, Columbia River High School is a very good place to experience the high school career.
Columbia River was a really great high school. I played baseball there for all four years. The athletics at this school are amazing. All the coaches for all the sports were very polite and friendly. The teachers were very helpful in the classroom helping the students with all of their academic needs. Career services also were very helpful by helping the students getting prepared for college. I enjoyed my time at Columbia River High School. The community was very supportive and involved with the school. The school was pretty well maintained during my time attending the school. Even after I graduated from this school, I am welcome to use their facility to practice.
