This page is provided to help students with life at Columbia. Whether you're looking for resources for a research project, trying to figure out your grades and GPA, planning your route toward graduation and beyond, or wondering what time the game starts, you should find links to help you on your way.
One of the best ways to make the most of your first year at CHS is by getting involved. Do your assignments (yes) and go to class (of course) but make sure you become part of your school. There are many clubs and activities that you can join, and sports each season that can test your talents and develop your interests. Get to know and rely on your advisor, our counselor, and all the other teachers and staff members who can help you when you have questions.
Don't let school pass you by; get involved and get the most out of your Freshman year!

Your sophomore year at Columbia is here, and that means you're moving on from last year's experiences and getting a fresh start with a new perspective. If you haven't found a club or sport to get involved in, take a look at them again to see if there's something that will spark your interests and make your sophomore year that much more rewarding.
Sophomore year also means state testing in the springtime, with results that have an impact on where you may go next, what classes you'll take, and what decisions will take you to your next stages in life. Do what you can to learn what you need to do well and you'll likely be ready for whatever tests are down the road.
