I am a student here and this is my second year. The sport programs are terrible. We have won 1 football game in the 2 years I been here. Basketball is the best one we have and we only win about half the time. Also any other sport that is not Football or Basketball they almost completely ignore. Another thing I can't stand is as an honors student I am willing to do homework but because of the amount of homework they give you, you have to pick and chose what classes you will actually do homework in or you will fail them all. Oh and AP classes are almost gone we only have 2 AP classes left and if you want to get any college credit you are forced in to the IB program and even those classes are going downhill. This week we had 2 food fights and now have to eat in our classes for the rest of the year, and last week we had 4 regular fights. My sister went to this school 5 years before me and it hasn't improved one bit, it has gotten a lot worse. And now Columbia is marked as a failing school because of a test the now Juniors took last year and wasn't even their fault they failed the laptops internet goes out every other day, and even if there is not a test that day we still are not able to use a textbook (because they got rid of ALL of them) or our phones for educational purposes. Also because of the failing school status if you are white you can't transfer out to go to another school because of the desegregation order for Huntsville City Schools. The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 is because of the ARMY JROTC program that is the only reason I am willing to stay instead of moving to a different school zone. If you are moving to Huntsville make sure your student DOESN'T go to Columbia, actually make sure they DON'T go to to Huntsville City Schools.

This school has completely gone down hill. Too many fights and unnecessary drama going on and it's about ridiculous. Our school is also at the bottom of the failing list. Also how can they want change when they sit here and tear up our school and buses, leave litter and wanna fight. Like what happened to talking everything out cause this is getting out of hand. The teachers are not all bad, but they do need to improve a little by trying to make learning interesting and then students need to get their act together. We just need to step our game up and try and have more interest in our school.

"This school wants to be successful so badly but it just can't seem to get it right. I've been there all four years watching as administrators come and go. And this is only one of the actions in trying to make that high school more competitive like Grissom, Huntsville High and New Century. However, I have seen no improvement in behavior, grades and education benefits as they change administrators. I seem to always be asking myself ""Is Huntsville City Schools really putting all they've got into us."" The answer is always no. Yes, I'm jealous of the other schools. Better grades, better scores, better experience, focused administrators. Don't get me wrong some of the administrators I've met the past couple of years were great! But where are the results to prove so? Huntsville City Schools put us in a random place. ""Let's buy this cotton field and build a school for the kids on the arsenal."" Yet there are kids coming from Harvest to study here! And the racial percentages... Don't even get me started. HCS needs to get it right. It's ridiculous. The racial diversity is non-existent. And intimidating! To top it off they put some of the Butler kids in there due to the building of the new school for Butler, Johnson and other schools. That school doesn't need more children. The school isn't that big. The IB program... I guess I could say it's good because it's great for colleges, building a resume, and scholarships. I recommend it for any student looking to be above average. Like everything else at this school, it could use some improvement. All they seem to be worried about is if they are going to win the next football game or basketball game. There is also lack of enthusiasm, moral support, spirit! Gosh. I feel bad for anyone that ever played sports there. I know I felt bad when I played a sport. No one shows up. I feel embarrassed. Not only is the district not supportive but the parents, students, and staff are awful at being somewhat supportive or enthusiastic about anything. Jeez. Not saying my experience at this school is/was awful. But there are certainly more days than others where I just don't want to be in that environment."

Columbia is a great school that gives students the tools for the future. Attendance is optional as we drive by another high school everyday. With the core subjects as honors, the IB Program as an option and the JROTC program along with sports, good kids can be well prepared for the next step. The negatives are there is minimal parent involvement and the drive to the school.

As a teacher at Columbia High School who has been involved in teaching classes through the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program and Diploma Program, I have been very impressed with the results we have had so far. Students in the DP program have been accepted to schools like Vanderbilt, MIT, Georgia Tech, Berkeley, Georgetown, Alabama, and Auburn and many receive full scholarships to the schools they attend. Last year 100% of our DP students received scholarships to their respective schools. The curriculum of the IB program encourages critical thinking and problem solving rather than rote learning and prepares students for success in college and beyond. Most of our former DP students say that college is easy because of what they learned in IB. I am very excited about what the IB program is doing at Columbia High School.
