    A Message From Our Principal

    Welcome to Columbia High School!

    I would like to welcome everyone back for the 2014-15 school year. It is with great pride that I serve as the principal of Columbia High. We have the best students, staff, and community. My goal is to work every day to provide a safe and nurturing environment for students to receive solid and challenging instruction from a dedicated staff of teachers.
