Open Quote Columbia Elementary School is a top notch school. The teachers are great. The principle is an example of what a true leader should be. On any given day, you can see parents, grandparents and even older siblings on campus volunteering their time to our wonderful school. Rising test scores and outstanding achievments at Oral Language, Science fair and multiple California Distinguished School honors prove how well this school is run. It has been my pleasure to be associated with Columbia for over 7 years! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
