    I have went to this school for 6 years and I don't think it deserves the rating that it has. Most of the teachers are terrible and pick favorites like the kids that play sports or the "popular" kids. Very few teachers there actually care about every student and treat them all the same. But ever since I came to this school I have been picked on bullied and everything along those lines. I have always tried getting help and the only time I got it was after I was pushed to the point of having a breakdown in the middle of class. I have completely lost faith in this school because the principles always promised to help but never did anything. I get bullied and made fun of and the principle of CHS tells me that it's MY fault? What a GREAT school. Also they don't care about the students educations. They only care about the sports like football. Excuse me but I think teaching us students is a little more important than your precious little sports Columbia. I am so glad I'm leaving after this year. Also the lunches are terrible my friend found a maggot in her food last week and the lunch ladies yelled at her for it. DO NOT go to this school. It's terrible and you'll regret it!!

    My daughter attened Columbia High in 1998 and graduated in 2001. She has had nothing but great luck with all her future plans. Columbia allowed my daughter to gain repsectable credentials for her resume. Since graduation she has attened Miami University graduated with a bachlors degree in child and family srevices and is curently working on her masters degree. The point of this review is that with out all the oppertunities that were available for her my daughter would not have been able to get to where she is today with such ease. Thank you Columbia for caring. -Debbie

    I love this school for my daughter. The small atmosphere has been perfect and is perfect for kids growing up. Not like strongsville the kids here are friendly and welcoming. The city type atmospheres around the township only make the kids not want to be like that even more. This school is inviting and warm. The student and faculty have a great relationship and really have a chance to bond.
