    Columbia schools are great. We have the best teachers!

    Wow this is our second year in the district and at this school. I am continually amazed at what an extraordinary school CMS proves to be. Last night was the teacher/parent meet and greet...It was so refreshing to repeatedly hear the teachers excitement and enthusiasm for their subject and the desire to help the students learn. The teachers make learning come alive...many of these teachers have been teaching 10+ years and still being an abundance of energy to their craft. The entire staff go above and beyond wanting to make sure each student succeeds to the best of their abilities. It is a great school and we are thankful to be a part of the CMS family.

    I'm very pleased with the teachers staff and the facilities. The administration is interested in making learning better for EACH child. The students learn character traits each month and they are rewarded for good deeds. Education is more than just the ABCs and Columbia Middle School offers a positive experience for the child parent and community. I would recommend CMS to everyone interested.
