First, there has been a disingenuous effort to flood this thread with glowing comments. Don't believe the hype. Test scores in math are low. Transparency is non-existent. School Leadership is weak and hostile to even the most basic of requests from parents. Multiple parents have left school abruptly mid-school year. Many others are leaving at the end of this school year. My suggestion: keep looking!!!
Our family wants to say THANK YOU to Mrs. Rickling!!! She is everyone's go to person! She is in charge of our enrollment, our school's fund raising events, she is our art teacher, our piano teacher. She does tremendous work for our St. Columba Family and very generous with her time and resources to our children. We cannot thank her enough in her contribution to our school and our children adore her! Her affable and generous spirit is one of the many reasons why we love our school!!!
St. Columba School is at its 54 years! To me this says a lot about a school. It is a tight knit community with parents and teachers working hand in hand in ensuring that the children are given quality education. Students are very respectful and genuinely enjoys being in school. I highly recommend it to anyone!!!
Our principal at St. Columba School is wonderful! Because of her leadership and love of the children, we are one strong family with a solid foundation built on faith, academics and service. Thank you Mrs. Magnaye for being the gentle Mother to our children!
My children love St. Columba. The teachers are very caring and nurturing. The environment is very small community. Everyone (parents and teachers) are eager to help each other. It truly is the "it takes a village" mentality.
I could not be more pleased with the education that my daughter has and is receiving from St. Columba. My husband is an alumni, my mother-in-law has been a parishioner and choir member for over 28 years. Every year the school meets and works harder to achieve even higher standards for the kids.
We love St Columba School!!! We cam from another private Montessori school and our experience between 2 schools are very different. We liked how the children are being taught not only quality education but also they instill Christian values to the students. This school is very grounded in their teaching with amazing teachers that truly cares about their students.
