Columbus North International School Reviews

I had a positive experience my first year and half of attending Columbus International, what is now Columbus North International. The original principal made an effort to not only remember names with faces of his students, but also families and even made a strong effort to communicate with families of different language backgrounds (Spanish, Arabic, French) to make sure there was no exclusion or barrier when it came to being connected with them. The school focused heavily on community service, building up each other and ourselves. Things changed when he left, the school became your run of the mill public schools. The drive burned out as well as the passion that was behind community service. It was as if no one wanted to be there and just wanted to leave. If I could do over my first two years at the school, I would do it in a heart beat and recommend it to all students looking for a school that wanted you to feel important.

I really like the diversity of the school. It is an old building so there are some things that need to be fixed up. You hardly see any bullying at that school, and there are fights, just not as much. The students can be disrespectful sometimes, but so can the teachers. Other than that, International is a great school
The first two years of my experience here were great but when we had a change in principals things started to go south. There were more confrontations, more disrespectful encounters with teachers and much more. The students were faced with the change so suddenly and didn't know how to react. The new principal isn't as engaged as the founding principal was, he doesn't interact with all students like the previous principal had and he has enforced new rules it seems every month that were perfectly fine with the previous principal and all other authorities. The overall attitude and environment of the school has changed, and not for the better.
