Open Quote My son loves Columbia Central, of the surrounding schools, this one had so many different activites and it rewards those children who are not trouble markers and who are honor students. Being smart here is a good thing, and almost no bullying... I have a smart and short kid, and he excels here at Columbia 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.
