My mother has taught here for a couple of years and it’s an amazing school. The staff cares about each and every one of the students. Every kind of support you need is there. The school has a strong relationship with St. Columba Catholic Church. (Father Ed is the best:) I would highly recommend you send your child here.

We found St Columba when we were driving around looking for a place to send our child to daycare so we can come to work nearby. After 2 years at pre-school, our child fell in love with the school, the teachers and all her friends, so she wanted to go school there so she can be with her friends and the teachers. We felt the same way with our child since we have witnessed the pre-school teachers were so friendly and took great care of the children. When our second child were ready for pre-school, we sent him straight to St Columba without hesitant. Our eldest child finished 8th grade and the second is about to finish. Not only our children attended St Columba, but our sisters' children and our niece's children all attended at St Columba school. It's a great school with great teachers and great education. Looking back at those years and we felt that it's the best investment that we have ever made to send our children to St Columba for education.

As a military member, my family and I arrived in San Diego just in time for my first born to start kindergarten. Looking at the public school options I grew concerned. St. Columba was the second private/Catholic school we visited and knew it was the one for us. The parent participation is great and teachers are there 100% for the children. St. Columba has outstanding tuition rates when compared to other Catholic schools in San Diego. The facilities could use some updating but the staff works wonders with what they have! In 2014 the school hired a new principle and from that point she has brought in brilliant teachers. With a mixture of seasoned educators and fresh talent that is motivated to pass on the teachings of Jesus to our children, the sky's the limit for this school! Needless to say all of my children will be attending St. Columba Catholic School and fellow coworkers and neighbors have also decided to enroll in our school. I highly urge anyone that is considering a religious based education to take a tour and ask questions. You will be pleasantly surprised!

Our family has been at this school for a couple years now and I now feel that I can give an honest assessment at this point. When we were looking for public schools in our area we were pretty disappointed. After touring this school it had the feel of the school we wanted. In addition to academics, we wanted the right environment and atmosphere. A place our children would want to be and not dread going everyday. The students were all listening at attention and the teachers had full command of the classroom during our unscheduled visit. This is an old school. It just celebrated 50 years as a school. It could use updating in many areas, but it has everything it needs. It does have a library and computer lab - though small, it works. It does have an art program, music and dance options for those that choose to participate. The school choir is absolutely fabulous-impressive. The kids go to mass every Friday and parents are welcome to join. A Catholic school operates heavily from volunteer work of the parents. We appreciate this because we know many parents are then involved with the school and their children. We constantly assess this school compared to our other choices - public and private - and always choose this school. One reason is hearing what the graduating 8th graders have to say about their time spent at St. Columba. They all seem to love it and appreciate the education, life lessons as well as the friends they made. This year 100% of the 8th grade students passed the Catholic H.S. acceptance exam. Over 60% are moving on to Catholic/Christian schools. To address a couple comments from a previous poster:1. There is fundraising to be done at every school.2. Science curriculum is done in class at each grade level. 3. There is music class offered.4. The Spanish is basic, but it isn't a Spanish immersion - it is for exposure and cultural teaching.5. Every school I have investigated raises tuition at some point.6. Summer camp was operating at a loss - This is not part of tuition. They will make a new program for next year that can be run without loosing money.7. The registration fee is $250, PTG is $300 - this is comparable to like schools.8. Uniforms changed - We love uniforms - we save money on other clothes in the long run.

Always asking for $ but not spending it on the kids. No science class, no music, and a very basic Spanish class taught by one of the students grandmother. Huge tuition hike, cancelled summer camp, $500 registration fee, $200 PT fee, and they changed the uniforms, so now we have to buy all new ones. I'm sad to leave. Would have paid the $ if we felt the principal had a clue.
