My son is a magnet student & an AB student. If it wasn't for that, I would move in the area of 'better schools'. They have gang problems, kids setting fires on the school buses, etc... I teach my kids to be the best at what ever they set their minds to but it's hard when they're faced with things like ...  Read more

This school is great academically, but there are very few extracurricular activities, half decent bathrooms, and some mean teachers.

Dr. A seems to be a great leader. He is constantly seeking parental input and considers the students' feeling when making decisions. There are 'bad' teachers in every school and Dr. A is aware that there may be a few at Columbia. This is why he has dismissed several teachers since the school has opened. ...  Read more

My son and I moved here from Miami, Florida and my son attended Columbia Middle School when they first opened the school in August-2001. I was a little nervous because Georgia School Systems are quite different from Florida, but in the end my son truly accelerated his grades in the first quarter and ...  Read more
