Principal's Message

​​Welcome to Columbia School! We are looking forward to another exciting year. With effort comes reward, and we hope to be able to share, with you, the many rewards of being here.     

Our school's philosophy is the development of the whole person. We want our students to become critical thinkers who are willing to take healthy risks and, therefore, learn through both success and failure. Through a wide variety of activities, we encourage the students to reach their potential. We want our students to be people who accept the opinions, actions, and cultural differences of others. We hope that every student will be a strong, confident, and contributing citizen of the future.

To assist the students in reaching their goals, we offer a high standard of academic subjects, mobile technology, Home Economics and Industrial Arts for Grades 7 and 8, a variety of intramural sports for Grades 4-8, team sports for Grades 7 and 8, choir as well as other special events throughout the year for all ages. We consider individual differences of students in our instructional program and provide student services help for those who may need extra assistance.

The Cougar Code and student handbook were written to give children and their families a sense of the high expectations we have for our students and to answer many of the most commonly asked questions. Our policies and procedures are not meant to be restrictive and confining, but protective and guiding.​

It is impossible to convey, on paper, the sense of caring and warmth that we wish our Columbia community members to experience. Please feel free, at any time, to contact the school if you have any questions or concerns. The family and the school can provide the best care for your child when working as a team
