Columbus Public Schools provide a challenging, protective and rewarding educational experience for kindergarten through the twelfth grade students. Utilizing a low student-to-educator ratio, one-to-one computing, a statewide offering of courses and strong community support, our school is dedicated to propel each of our Cougars in their academic and life endeavors.
