  • I was not pleased this year, my students are required to come to school after hours for a grade, I work late and it is unfair. Some of the staff are very unprofessional.

  • the staff at columbia middle school are very unprofessional. they focus on fashion not education...they are more concerned with what students wear than what knowledge the children are NOT obtaining! Its time for theses adults to grow up and go back to educating these young adults and preparing them for their future

  • Please, please do your research prior to enrolling your child in this school. Phone calls are rarely returned, the answering system on the phone is highly inadequate and a the team of teachers in the 7th grade will not assume responsibility. The school is in need of a major overhaul
