My daughter is in love with this school. She is leaving for middle school next year, but she has very few bad memories from friends, but that's all. I, just me would say that Mrs. Lorimer, a 5th grade teacher is the best home room teacher for my child. Columbia has a very good amount of kids that are willing to work.
Columbia is a school with very dedicated staff and an excellent principal. Mrs. Musser is no doubt the best principal in the Joplin school district. Columbia has a very active parent group that will welcome anyone who wants to participate.
