Columbus city schools is a 4 out of 10. Instead of spending their funding on maybe having an “emerald campus” like Dublin city schools it spent under 10% of its funding on heat and air conditioning. Surprisingly the buildings are still cold or warm unpredictably. We don’t have and sports or educational centers that focus on higher level work or equipment to help students. Also, architects asked my ap gov class last school year about what we’d like to see. They said it would be just like Dublin or other more successful districts in the next twenty years. That’s pitiful. Next, there was only one workshop that covered college. More preparation for college applications and scholarships would help so much! Having a week of just back to back workshops covering applications, how to pick colleges, how to find scholarships, how to pick scholarships, how to pick majors, or how to complete farsa throughout the week could make a tremendous impact. Effort is all I ask, and others as well.
My enrollment in the Columbus City School District was one of the best decisions I have ever made! 2016 was when I first enrolled in this district. I previously was in the Delaware City School District and if I could rate that particular district, I would give it a one-star review. It was a terrible experience. Thankfully, I found a much better district. One that cares about its students and their futures. The first thing I noticed about the Columbus City School district was its cultural diversity. I've learned so much. This opportunity shaped me into a well-rounded woman. With open-mindedness, passion, and kindness, I was able to accept everyone as they are. Since 2016, my social life has expanded enormously. I will forever be immensely grateful for this district and what they offered me. I could write forever about Columbus City Schools but sadly there's a limit. One last thing I will mention is its support. There has never been a day where I felt behind or in the shadows.
Columbus City School has many schools that help students with different learning disabilities. I was in multiple schools due to being a young teen mother. I started my freshmen year in '04. Got pregnant that same year and still went to school. My teachers were helpful & still made honor roll multiple times. I had to leave school due to not having transportation to take my daughter to daycare. I then enrolled to Life skills. I was there for a brief moment. Teachers were very helpful but I still struggled a lot to understand basics. I then turn 19 and decided to enroll at ECOT. This School heelped me to learn more about technology. Unfortunately, I was in an abusive relationship. I then quit again my school. A couple years later, I decided to go back to school. Graduation Alliance partners with Columbus State Community College Adult 22 +. I graduated in '19, I felt powerful! I wanted more! I decided to take some classes for phlebotomy & medical examiner.
