What I like about Columbia Heights high school is how diverse the school is. You can walk down the hall and see students with all different cultures. Its a good school for learning about other cultures and education they also offer the AP and PSEO options that give you to help your future for college. The teachers truly care about the students they are always willing to stay after for extra help for the students to make sure they can get their credit. The deans are also very helpful you can make appointments with them and they are always there no matter what to talk about tests, transcripts or grades, whatever you need they're there for you. Even when it grades the school still knows how to have fun with the athletics and clubs that are flexible so you can keep your academics good. Everyone in the school is so helpful and so caring you know you can trust everyone. the students to the deans, whenever you're going through a tough time they are there for you all the way till graduation.

My experience at Columbia Heights was great. The teachers were very nice and helpful even though there were a few that weren't so great, they don't dim the light on the great teachers. I wish the school would invest in different activities and sports rather than putting all their money towards 2 or 3 popular sports. I also wish the school would provide more incentives for students who do well.
I have 3 kid's, 1 has graduated from Columbia Heights, 1 is in 9th grade at the High school, and 1 in the middle school. For the most part we have had a great experience with the schools, however their ate a number of things that get swept under the rug. I wanted my kid's in this district because of it's diversity, but I did not realize how being among very few white kid's would single them out.
