Columbia Elementary School Reviews
I love Columbia Elementary. The staff treats the students with respect, they teach them to be responsible, respectful, and safe. My 8 year old daughter goes there and she has ADHD. They are patient with her and have really helped her to keep up with her grade level.
Columbia Elementry is a very good school. The principal and his whole teaching staff are wonderful. They all seem to genuinely care about the students there. One of their mottos is that "No child will be left behind." My daughter is in the 2nd grade and loves it at Columbia. She hasn't missed a day yet. Last year she went to a different school and she never wanted to go to school.
