CSS is a very fun school to be in. We just recently had a Student Government Movie Party and Dress-Down Day. What is cool about this school is that we [the students] get a say at least at one point. Our voices are heard when we have to say something. The policies that are out are followed and we maintain a large amount of order. Wwe are also using the 'green' policy. We try to recycle as much as we can. The only problem is that the school beneath us doesn't. Please help us out by going to coulmbiasecondary.org and donating to our school and profiting for mini-grants that the faculty have put up. Thanks!
I Believe, that Being one of the Founding Students and one of the First to Graduate in the Year 2014, Is a Very Exciting Opportunity. All of the Academic Courses and Excellent, and the Extra-Curricular Activities are Extremely Enriching, Especially Gym, Electives, and Creative Arts. One Extra Special Thing About Our School? We Have the BEST Mathematics Teacher EVER!
best school I've been to in my entire life. I've never seen such a diverse school.The teachers are all so cool and young so they can relate to all our problems.We also have a lot of different things to do and we take some extra courses that you don't get in a regular school.
If you want to be part of an education experiment CSS/MSE is for you. What made the year so special was a bridge to school program the last week of August 2007 introducing the new students and faculty to each other in workshops, followed by an intense year long academic program (8-4pm). The Principal, Dr. Maldonado empowers the students -- giving them the opportunity to meet with him at regular assemblies to vent and confide their concerns. Students wear uniforms. CSS/MSE's focus is on the whole student: from being physically fit to understanding one's influence on the environment to fluency in Spanish. At CSS/MSE the sciences, including mathematics and engineering are humanized. How does one live green and ethically in NYC?
Columbia Secondary is a very diverse, ecologically friendly, harmonic school where everybody tries their best to achieve their goals. There is a very wide range of learning opportunities. Every body gets along and we try our best to be a very green school. CSS is awesome!
