Columbia is a close knit place to live and it's where I grew up. When I was in high school they had a pretty good school system that consistently had at least an 80 percent pass rate on their graduation test and almost everyone in a class was expected to graduate. My class had about 90 to begin with 80 walked and I believe that 88 graduated
The crime isn't very high in Columbia Station especially because everyone knows everyone. If there is a crime the police respond to it quickly . It wouldn't be any slower than if you were living somewhere else. I feel relatively safe.
