Columbus High School was a great school to attend. The only problem was that the students getting most of the benefits, like scholarships, were the students who were personally familiar with the staff. As well as only the community students and those students who had been attending the school their entire life. For those students that transferred mid-year or the students who attended the school but were from another town, they didn't get the same benefits.

However, the school environment was very good. The teachers were very helpful, interested and excited to teach. The students were friendly and there were a lot of opportunities to partake in. The Ag life was especially fun to participate in and the sports' fans were very active.

I love Columbus High School, and I highly recommend it. It is great for academics, athletics, and general information. The staff is very friendly, and the teachers strive to help students succeed. They give their best to ensure that everybody leaves with an education and if they choose to go to college.
Columbus high school is in a very small town. The only thing I like about it is that everyone knows each other at the school campuses so no one's really left out. 3/4 of students get involved in sports. We show a lot of school spirit! The reason I don't like so much is the faculty. I feel like since we are such a small community and school, teachers don't get paid much so we never have and decent teachers. I know I have at least three teachers who know their stuff but have a hard time teaching it to students. I would really like them to try and look for better faculty and also our school food...or sucks.
