Columbian High School Reviews

Some of the positive things about Columbian generate around extracurricular activities. The Music teachers are all amazing at their jobs and jus amazing people n general. And most of the sports programs have found coaching in recent years that have helped improve records. As far as teachers of rudimentary classes though, Columbian is lacking greatly. Many of the subject departments only have one or two good teachers, out three or four. Most of the teachers don't line up what their teacher to what the other teachers are teaching for the same class and so some students are at disadvantage in their education.

Columbian is a great school with amazing teachers. Columbian is very family based within sports and academics. The way the whole school and community supports the students with their athletic achievements and academic achievements makes Columbian students proud. High school at Columbian wasn’t extremely stressful because we have an amazing staff that will help you with any problems you are going through.
The teachers, for the most part, are very average. There are a select few teachers that I've had that have a genuine interest in what they teach and the students they teach. The school only cares about football, in my opinion, females sports are discriminated against and don't get funding like the football team, or other male sports get.
