    I have had 4 kids attend that school. Both the old and the new. The school as a whole is wonderful but I could not recommend the principal. The teachers however are some of the best!

    The teaching staff at East Columbus Elementary is top notch. The majority of our staff have masters degrees or higher. It is our number one priority to see that every child makes academic growth in spite of whatever difficulties they may be facing. I would not teach anywhere else!
