Columbus Unified School District Reviews

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.

Columbus is a tight-knit community that has caring teachers, but unfortunately does not have much to offer. Although it is by far one of the best schools within Cherokee County, the school campus needs updated and more classes should be offered to students.
I have been going to school here since I started in kindergarten. I have had nothing but good experiences. Everyone knows everyone and is very helpful! I love my small town and I hope you do too!
