Columbus Unified School District Reviews

Experience with the school is ok. Education is lower-average for Kansas, teachers are friendly. Music program is very good and teachers genuinely care for students. Supportive faculty. Do not feel college readiness is a priority. Class content is lax and resources are poor. Facility is very poor, needs upgrades and some areas are borderline unsafe.

I liked all of the teachers I have had. Everyone here is extremely kind and helpful. I have been going here starting in ninth grade and now I am a senior and I have no complaints. The teachers are all fair and treat everyone with equity. The resources we have are plentiful. We had the opportunity to use Chromebooks starting my sophomore year and they have been very helpful. We have a virtual classroom on google classroom that we can access on the Chromebooks. We are able to turn in our assignments and receive assignments through this program. It has been very helpful in the past.
During my time at CUHS I had lots of great teachers and experiences through out my 12 years of schooling. They are friendly and helpful if you need it. The teachers are constantly looking out for what's best for you and your education, but also make it fun. The football team is usually unseated and the other sports are also great. They have pro assembly's and some class competitions during homecoming.
