High school was my favorite thing about my school years. My teachers all the way from 9-12 grade I loved every single one. The teachers were such a big help and they never complained about wanting to hep us. I love how the teachers also loved the sports just like the kids did. Our teachers show us love and always support us. The teachers also will be like your friend and always be there for you. The principal is always trying to make our days better doing whatever he can.

My experience with Columbia High School has been great overall. I am quite sad that I am going to leave this school in two months. I had some very fun and memorable moments here and I shall forever cherish that as I go. From the abundance of school spirit to the challenging school work, I will be forever grateful for having the opportunity of being at this school and calling myself a proud Wildcat.
The family like school experience there allows us to take risks and gives us the resources to be successful in life.
