They do not give support to students that need it, The teach it and explain it about 2 times and if the students gets or doesn't they move on. They do not take the time to work with the students that need that extra help. This school is to busy worrying about getting good scores from the state and not focusing on the students. Lodi schools have very little after school programs for working parents. The only one available is the boys and girls club which is expensive for single parents. They do not offer tutoring for kids and don't provide assistance. It would be nice to have some of the teachers graded because not all of them take the time or show concern of their students.
My kids go to school there. The teachers do not help the PTA at all. We are there to help the kids and they don't care, except a few. My daughter raves about the ESL teacher - met her and now I know why! But Never see the other teachers whatsoever
2 of my kids go there and I think is a great school it needs more parent participation.
I have a first grader attending Columbus and we've been very pleased with the academic program and feel the staff, teachers, principal are involved and care. The recent fund-raising carnival was a wonderful event enjoyed by many. THANK YOU, your hard work does not go un-noticed.
My son goes there and the principal and ESL teacher are the best! They are very caring and always willing to hlep my son. Thank you to both of them
Very good school. Teachers teach well. Principal is the BEST. He is very kind and caring. I am proud to say that my child attends Columbus School.
I think Columbus school teachers and the principal really care for all student who attend. I feel safe knowing that cameras are everywhere. I also think that the students really learn a lot. I am proud to say that my child attend Columbus
I think columbus school was a much better school before the new principal came along. He is new and unaware of how to interact with kids. They care more about the esl program than the gifted and talented program.
I have both a 1st grader and a 2nd grader in this school (2006). Their academic program is good, I've actually found that they are doing a little bit more 'advanced' school work than some friends children in another school district. The only thing I'm not crazy about is that there is very little extracurricular activities available (at least to my knowledge). The parents here are VERY involved in all aspects of the school.
