Columbia Elementary is a downtown school with a warm, welcoming community with high expectations for ALL!  The keys to our success are awesome students, a committed staff, dedicated parents and strong community support.  At Columbia we challenge our students to continually grow both academically and socially.  Columbia students have a sense of belonging and pride in themselves and in their community. Columbia is a school where ideas are shared and a positive environment leads to enthusiastic participation and learning. 
         Perhaps our mission statement says it best: It is the mission of Columbia School to collaboratively ensure that learning takes place for ALL by being responsible, setting high standards and accepting no excuses.  Our students will be contributing members of society who are respectful, responsible, and capable life-long learners.
    Welcome to Columbia!
