I graduated in the class of 2010 (last year). I think that the ratings that talk of a horrible school are totally bunk. Yes, Columbia City is in an older building, but Columbia City (at least from an academic standpoint) is not a bad school in almost any conversation. The downfall for the school is when it is compared to other area high schools (Homestead, Carroll, etc). Columbia City seems to be pretty low on the list for rigor in preparing students for college. I also like what the county is doing by trying new things in order to better prepare students such as Eagle Tech (which is coming this next school year) and transferring of non-effective administration.

I am going to this school as of now and I am of the class of 2013. I think that the Honors classes' programs are challenging but rewarding and never do the teachers expect you to do a mass amount of work by yourself. Great School all around and our basketball team went to semi-state so the sports isn't so bad either.

I went to this school from 1999-2003 and I think that anyone who sees this school as anything other than successful needs to get a clue. Sure, the diversity isn't what it would be in bigger cities, but the overall education and life lessons that CAN (if the student applies themselves) be learned are significant. I went on to graduate from Butler University, which is quite difficult, after graduating and playing football at CCHS. Sure, the athletic coaches may have never been the best, but anyone who says that the school is out to get a student to fail is living in some sort of fantasy world.

This school is the worst in the state. The teachers could careless about the students. They have one idea, an thats how they can kick your child out of school. The teachers are the worst I,ve ever seen. I feel sorry for whoever goes to that school.

My children graduated from this school system. Both of my children have gone on to college. My daughter thought the students at her private college that came from private or parochial schools were better prepared for college than she was. She only missed the Dean's list in her first semester. She then went on to graduate with honors. My son is in his 3rd year at college and he is doing well. Could the school system be better? Show me anything in this world that couldn't be better. There are plenty of extra-curricular activities (athletic and scholastic) for every student. There are also plenty of after school jobs for those that want to work. Overall I am satisfied with the education my children received in this system. I must add that my wife and I did monitor their progress through the years.

This is not a bad school but living in Fort Wayne like I did, I think these kids could use some diversity. They will not always be around people of the same skin tone and without ever experancing it, how can we expect them to grow, not only as a school but as young adults.
