A Comfortable Learning Environment

Many of us have had a favorite pair of shoes.  When you need to be comfortable, you slip into those shoes.  It doesn’t matter what color they are or what style they are, you wear them because they are comfortable.  The Columbia School District focuses on having a learning environment that is comfortable for all of our students.  

Being comfortable at school is important for students.  Our students have teachers who care about their needs, and work together to increase their academic success.  Columbia teachers spend over 30 hours in professional development each year and countless hours collaborating with their fellow teachers to incorporate interesting and challenging activities and strategies into the curriculum.

Columbia classrooms are climate controlled in any season to enhance the learning environment for our students and teachers.  Comfortable areas for teaching and learning is more than just nice furnishings and pleasant spaces, they are also safe places.   Columbia has enhanced the safety of our buildings by limiting entry, through our secure entry vestibules, new windows, new doors and locks, and video cameras both inside and outside of our buildings.  

To help argument the structural elements of security, the Columbia School District has updated the security plan in cooperation with the Columbia Township Police and Fire Departments, worked with our teachers and staff members in training sessions, and practiced safety drills.  The district has also partnered with the Columbia Township Police Department to include a police liaison to work with our teachers, administrators, and students.  If you have questions regarding Columbia Schools, our safety practices or any of our programs, please email me at or call 5175926641.
