Columbus School District Reviews

I spent most of my high school career at Columbus. They offered a spectrum of classes and several AP courses, but the students are never really challenged. They are tested on their ability to memorize for a short time, not on their ability to learn. I was also involved in the majority of the music programs, and they suffered greatly because of poor management, so to speak. Poor directors would continue in their employment because as long as they did not upset administration, they could run their programs how they pleased, regardless of the results.

The staff is amazing and work with students well. It provides a health environment for all people. There are clubs and sports that anyone can participate in. Everyone works hard to make others feel accepted. There is not a lot of money to pay for new equipment for sports and for some classes that used be available; however, money is spent where it is needed most.
Overall, my experience at Columbus High School has been decent. There are many opportunities regarding clubs and sports, however there are a few areas that I think need to be improved. One area that I think the Columbus School District needs to work on is facilities. Having to go to the same school as my grandparents is not very ideal. Another thing that the school district needs to improve on is safety. Often times, there have been traces of gas leaks in the hallways that I would consider unsafe for students to inhale. One last area that I believe the Columbus School district needs to make adjustments on is school lunches. The main reason why the school lunches need to be changed is that there are excessive amounts of unhealthy foods be served. My time spent at the Columbus School District has been reasonable. There are many extracurricular activities to participate in, but there are a few areas that should be improved.
