    "Im very happy with school so far there has been many changes that I do like middle school for 6,7 and 8th student get to meet with different teachers through out the day its like getting then ready for high school when they actually do get. the only thing that does bother me is they should have a couple of staff member outside as kids start arriving incase there is a fight a bulling happening I do get afraid of that. also more activity should for afterschool kid maybe a softball team cheerleading basketball idk im just putting some idea there but so far im happy"

    "Columbus is one of the best kept secrets in Ukrainian village. There is a very dedicated teaching staff and a diverse group of high achieving students all in small family-like community. The expectations are high and the list of after school activities keeps growing. I would send my own children there if I did not work there myself."

    "I go to this school and yet it is very fun there is a lot of bullying. There are many bilingual teachers but yet they barely speak English. Some teachers/staff/volunteers though are racists. I am sometimes sad going tpo this school and I was surprised to find that it was on this website."

    "If I could give Columbus ZERO STARS, I would! Most of these reviews I m sure are from the teachers at this school or the parents who work/volunteer here. This school has been run by the gym teacher who everyone seems to be afraid of including the principal. Teachers here are too self-involved & have no clue as to what they are doing. I find it a HUGE problem when a teacher is gone for 2 quarters esp when she teaches the 7th grade then returns & expects the kids to be at the level they should be at during that time. This is the MOST important grade in elementary. This is not ok and I feel that if you re gone for 2 quarters then you should be gone for the year. There were several teachers out at the same time, for two consecutive years. The sub that was there for the 7th gr. was certified but definitely was not qualified to teach that gr. After many complaints from the parents, the principal chose to ignore us and left the sub there. Many parents transferred their kids because of this. I hope that the new principal sees the circus there and starts to get rid of these so called teachers. I will continue to do my best to have this school investigated after what they put us through."
