This school is a perfect example of everything a school shouldn't be. Teachers don't teach. They don't explain anything. You can spend hours a night with your child explaining what should have been taught in school. Parents pay exorbitant taxes in exchange of a dilapidated building with fixtures from 1925 I think. If your child has any kind of a personality the administration will pounce on them and harass them until their love of school has completely disappeared. The school is staffed with mostly teachers who don't have a joy if teaching. The superintendent should definitely visit this school more often. Adults should set an example. The staff is full of unimaginative employees who should choose another career - like correctional facility management. 4 words - "Let the buyer beware".

Columbia Middle is an awesome school... It teaches things that kids think are absolutely impossible to learn and somehow the teachers make it all so easy! Yay!
Has a great educating system for my kids. The teachers are very passionate.
This was my child's first year in the middle school and I was pleased. I would have liked to see more emphasis on writing skills and felt opportunity period was a waste. She had some very good teachers and her transition went very well.
