20 Parent Reviews for Columbia Middle School

The worst school I have ever taught for. Rampant defiance by many of the low-income students that attend. No administration support for the teachers that are trapped in a room full of hoodlums and thugs. If your child gets placed at the school, pull them out as fast as you can.

HORRIBLE SCHOOL: My daughter got into a fight with another student at Columbia and the assistant principal knew the other child intended to do harm to my daughter.

I attended Columbia for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade when the school first started out. In my opinion, back then, the school was great in so many different ways! The teachers helped me to succeed and always had a positive and motivating spirit. They would change the principal every year though, which was ...  Read more

I can say that at first I was afraid for my child to attend Columbia just by the things that I heard and seen. However, she is now in the 8th grade and she loves it. I love the fact that the teachers are great and they care.

I was very excited to get my first teaching job at Columbia. They played up the school's opening so much that you couldn't help but be dissapointed. With the changes in administration, the turn over of staff and the loss of programs, I can't help but feel this school was set up to fail. My last year ...  Read more

First of all, I would like people to understand that this is an unfair site. People only come on to bash individual schools or to vent not to praise them. I do understand the frustration of CMS but please rest assured that Adelanto School District heard their public and fired the principal in question. ...  Read more

I am now attending Columbia [and I feel] it is a very unorganized school. The teachers and administrators do not comunicate enough with each other or with the parents.

Feel the principal is the main problem with the school with his flippant attitude that he is always right. Feel they made a big mistake in losing Mr Early as a music teacher. Counselor attitude as bad as principal.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.
