I love going to CGHS! it is a fantastic school. there are very few problems while I have been here. As a student here at CGHS, I am not lying when I say that I not woken up ready to start learning from the great staff that is teaching me what I need to learn for my future. The teachers will help you make up what you have missed when you are gone. They are also very helpful when you are having trouble in their class, you never feel like you are taking up their time with a 'dumb' question. They are always ready to help when you are struggling.

No school is perfect, but Columbus Grove High School exceeds numerous expectations and standards. Although the school is not found in a diverse setting, the students are open to new individuals. The superintendent converses with each and every student on a regular basis, and the elementary principal calls each student by name. The environment is friendly and trustworthy. For the most part, teachers are well-equipped and trained very well. The staff and students alike are very approachable and problems are smoothed out as soon as they occur. The extra-curricular opportunities are abundant, and they range from athletics to scholastics. Those in charge want the best for the students attending Columbus Grove, and it is quite apparent.
Columbus Grove High School provides me with the necessary education to be a productive and informed citizen. The courses are challenging but manageable, and due to the school’s smaller size, the students form close bonds with their teachers. Teachers are willing to help students who struggle but encourage them to be problem-solvers and work it out themselves. The school has several clubs, extra-curriculars, and sports for students to participate in. There is a fair amount of diversity in course types. Most students perform very well on tests and in high-stress situations. Overall, Columbus Grove High School is an excellent school that produces several well-educated and prepared students who go on to be good people.
