  • There is no other school I would want my child to attend. The staff at Columbus High go above and beyond for their students. My child has excelled both academically and socially. They offer a wide range of sports that some of the other schools in the county do not offer such as a swim team and a Raiders team. They offer classes that are not available at other schools such as the "Foundations of Knowledge" class that is REQUIRED for all freshman. They teach manners and then have a Holiday Social every year to put those manners into action. They require a Senior Project, not a term paper. The student must pick a skill and master it through lessons, mentors and hours put in on the skill they have chosen. Your child will come out of this school more than capable of taking on the challenges of college and life.

  • I'm very proud that our son graduated CHS. The school offers a very challenging, well-rounded curriculum in a highly sociable, non-threatening environment. The staff was awesome and made us feel they were genuinely interested in our son's education. I hightly recommend CHS for those who have bright, focused children. Our son was well-prepared for college thanks to CHS.
