Ditto, to all the other disappointing one star posts. Baseball leads the pack, morals what morals, good thing a religious school you would not think so. bullying by team captains, seen the videos of team captain taking another junior members car keys and driving his car on baseball field. Pre night before game drinking, sad. Nothing was ever done other teachers know about it as well. running thru lourdes police attending, Disrupting classes then taking this attitude on to field with support from head coach no type of punishment -- others made to run for this one's mistakes. No other players standing up to this -ad no morals.. Someones got pictures on someone here.. Onwards and upwards, wish them well but far away from us. Lots of other great picks vs this spot. FB / Golf coaches good. Spots need a re align as they call the shots over the principal and try not to sweep under the carpet..It can only be sugar coated so long before the truth is out..
I am so so happy that I am finally finished with this school. The fact that I never have to return to this place makes me ecstatic. During my time here I had the misfortune of dealing with some terrible teachers that assigned loads of busy work.. I only had a handful of quality teachers that taught and actually cared about my education. During my time here I played baseball and it was honestly the WORST baseball program I have ever been a part of. There is nothing good that came from my time there. They are clueless on what it means to be a quality coach and I have ZERO respect for the head coach. This corrupt program is all about money and donations and as a recent comment says paying under the table. The amount of negative things I can write about this program will take up all 1563 characters that this website allows me to use...
My oldest son graduated from Columbus in 2014. He came from a public school so the transition was a little difficult at first, especially the all boy part. He truly loved the school by the end of his freshman year. He had a wonderful experience both academically and in sports. Anytime I had a concern or an issue, it was taken care of by either a teacher or administration. He is doing great in college and is very proud to be an Explorer.
This school reinforced the great morals that my son already possessed. Every event like, the ring ceremony, graduation mass, and graduation was filled with meaningful speeches guiding the boys on their way to lead honest and successful lives.
My son attended CCHS for 4 years. The education at this school is only good if your son is part of the Mas program otherwise you are better of going to any public school and probably receive a better education. With that being said, they have to have the worst basketball program and coach in the entire country. The coach Henry Lorenzo is a bully, not sure how he is still coaching after all these years and how the parents, students and faculty have not done something about his terrible attitude on and off the court. Overall the experience my son had was mediocre. Don t let them fool you with the so called brotherhood!
I've had two boys go though Christopher Columbus high school and I can sincerely say that it has met and exceeded all of my expectations. Columbus provides a both top-ranked academic and athletic environment each based on discipline and integrity which is without replication anywhere. I can sincerely say that the graduates at Columbus come out as men with traditional values and connections that will lead them to excellence throughout the rest of their lives.
Columbus is a top notch school. I am glad that I graduated from there. I feel I was well prepared for college and made friendships that will last forever. Everyone says that Columbus is only for athletes, but that is far from the truth. Everyone can find a niche there: You can be on the award winning TV crew (CCNN), you can be on a great debate or robotics team, you can lead the student body, you can be a MAS scholar, you can work the stage in drama, you can be highlighted in a museum if you are an art student, etc. The opportunities at Columbus are endless. Best school in Miami. Proud to be an EXPLORER!!!!
