This school doesn't have much money. MOST of the teachers are very supportive and have your best interest in mind, however, some teachers I feel like only teach to be a coach.
The school doesn't have much to offer in terms of extra-curricular activities besides sports and band and choir, besides a few clubs. Sports are a big part of school and practically dictate your relationship with teachers that coach.
The school food is terrible. Most people bring their lunch of have someone deliver them lunch.

I have had a very good experience with Columbus Schools. I have been going here my whole life. They have helped me through the many hard times I have had. They will push you to do your best. And they will make sure you understand all the classes you are taking. And if you need help with anything they will get you the help you need.
I really like that Columbus is a small school, because it really gives you the chance to get to know everyone. The only thing I did not like is that we did not get very many opportunities here.
