Columbia District and Curriculum
The Columbia Borough School District takes the learning of their students very seriously. As such, they have curriculum leaders for various subjects and grade levels who meet to discuss necessary changes in the curriculum as needs come up. They also address subject areas every six years to ensure that all curriculum is in line with state standards and the Standards Aligned System prescribed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. By the time students reach high school, they are offered advanced and varied courses in each core subject as well as electives which can complement these core subjects.
We currently cover the following Columbia-area school district: Columbia Borough School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbia District Curriculum
All students take required core classes from grades Kindergarten through twelve. These core classes include Math, Language Arts, Social Studies and Science. Starting with the basic building blocks in each of these areas, elementary students learn the basics of reading, writing and numbers to facilitate a solid grounding whereby they can then build deeper knowledge and understanding in each subject.
Columbia Borough School District also teaches Specialty Subjects to their students in all grade levels. These are designed to complement and round out the education their students are receiving according to the standards set by the state. These courses include Art, Library Science, Music, and Physical Education for elementary and middle school students. High school students have more variety to choose from in art, music and technical education as well as physical education. They are also offered, at the high school level, World Language courses in both French and Spanish.

Chalk Talk: How to Help your Child Succeed in Science
Science can be an intimidating subject for any child or parent. But you can help your child succeed in science. First, remember that you do not have to have all the answers. Keep a positive attitude about learning and, when your child has a question that you don’t know the answer to, research together to find a satisfactory solution. This could include utilizing your local library, looking on reputable websites, or going to the child’s teacher or tutor for more information. Science can be fun and part of everyday life. You can help your child to see this when watching, for example, the weather channel or the Discovery Channel. You can help your child gain interest in science by introducing fun activities which relate to it. I remember having an acid rain testing kit when I was young. I thought it was great fun to get outside and find out how acidic, or basic, different liquids were. These types of activities as well as others can help your child succeed in science.
