Columbus Community High school is a small school with lots of diverse life, African American, Asian, Caucasian, and Latino. Because of our small classes and small schools, we offer more student support and teachers aid to the majority of our students. College Readiness is all about college, the first semester of the senior year has been devoted to learning all about things for college. i have been through a program called "Gear up" which will help me for when i go to college! The Administration is like every other, they try to keep up with the times, like for example, We had a really bad Phone problem in our school and now coming back, phones aren't even allowed in the classroom! now every student has been focused into their studies without distractions and some of us have really improved on it! i'm glad to say that sticking with smaller schools could be highly beneficial not only to you as a student but also to your grades, attendance. i'm proud to be a wildcats and that's that.

What I like about Columbus community high school is that it’s small and it’s safe. Also some of the teachers are really nice and really know how to teach the students but does not how to teach at all and I will like to see that change. I wish Columbus come high school is bigger and more people because some people don’t even have friends to talk to during class and it’s like a other lonely place for other people. What I will change about the school is that the food, some of the teacher and some of the coaches.also the school rules that they make.
What I really liked about Columbus Community High School was that the student to teacher ratio was very small. If you needed help from a teacher you were more likely to receive it. I also really liked the fact that everyone knew each other and we all have grown up with each other since we were little kids. Something that I would like to see change would be the involvement in extra curricular activities. Not many kids are involved in a lot of things, I would like to see this number go up!
