My 6th grade year at this school was awesome at first then as I got more into the school year, there were major problems; The students were always rude and truly ignorant. The teachers/staff tried, I guess. The assistant principal is okay, I liked him at first then once I noticed him 'nagging' on small things, all respect for him went down the toilet. The teachers have bad attitudes for no reason. You can compliment them or whatever just to get them to smile or whatever and they get an attitude. This school lowers confidence and makes people go home feeling like they never want to come back the next day. There were a few teachers I really enjoyed though! The GRC teacher is awesome. Anyways, I begged my mom to let us move. I want nothing to do with this school.

My son was receiving extra help for AD/HD in Elementary school. When he started middle school he was taken out of the program and know he is failing his classes. I can not understand who or why they would take this away and let him fail, I rate this school poorly in making the decision to take him out of this program when he is still under doctors care. Please think twice before sending your kids to Columbiana schools

As a past employer of Columbiana school. The leadership is great far as principal. The leadership goals is shown daily from the inside out. Teachers, administrative bodies are concerns about problems especially "bullying" is immediately handle. Parents are not afraid to send their kids to school I love columbiana Middle School where everyone is important.

I attended CMS, and now my youngest is a student there. Through the years, the faculty and staff have consistently brought out the potential of students, and the teachers are excellent at tailoring their methods of instruction to appeal to individual learning abilities. On top of all that, everyone seems to genuinely have fun while they take our children from their 'elementary' mindset and help them mature in their social and scholastic skills.

It is a growing school and has come a long way, but could use some help with materials and rooms they need so bad.

I love my class sizes. Over the years I've seen the school improve in its consistency and dedication to student achievement in both academic and social areas. The administration is strict but the rules are aimed at student safety and professionalism. The floors are always shining!

Most of our kids are fun, respectful, positive, and unspoiled. They want to learn and be challenged to excel. They don't always realize just how wonderful and smart they are compared to other schools in the county, but these are exceptional kids who just need someone to believe in them and push them to be their best.

I'm not a parent, but I do teach at this school. I've been there less than 5 years, and there is room for improvement, although we have improved in some areas drastically. Right now, we are becoming overcrowded, our discipline system is hitting major walls in consistency, and we are making AYP on our tests. We have both poor and wonderful teachers.
