Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbia District Curriculum
Challenging and rewarding, the Columbia Public School district curriculum serves as a springboard for students to succeed and thrive in a globally diverse future. The curriculum supports individual interests, recognizing that each student is best served by differentiated learning styles. Early grade focus in Language Arts lays the foundation with solid reading skills, word recognition, and vocabulary building. Multidisciplinary analysis of literature and artistic expression gives students the skills they need to think and work creatively.
Whole numbers and number facts in early grades emphasize the importance of mathematical skills in every day applications. In middle and high school, mathematics courses diversify into algebraic relationships, geometry, statistics, and data analysis. The interrelation between math and science is reinforced from early grades through high school, emphasizing student inquiry with course material that places them in the shoes of real scientists.

Chalk Talk: Making Lists - Fine-Tuning Your College Decisions
When faced with a college decision, weighing the pros and cons of each school can seem daunting. When in doubt, sit down first by yourself, then with your parents, guardian, or guidance counselor, and make a list of your options, and how they differ. Choose schools that are close to home, and farther away. Think about big universities and smaller liberal arts colleges, as well as ways to make small colleges big—such as those that have partnerships with larger universities or other schools in a consortium. Many large universities offer smaller learning environments, such as first-year programs or special interest programs. Think about cost, but don’t be afraid to look into both public and private schools.
