The Spirit of Atlanta
The Spirit of Atlanta
The Spirit of Atlanta, which is a nationally acclaimed DCI Band, came to visit Columbia High School on December 1st  and gave a clinic for the Brass and Percussion students.  This is a first in history! Our students received priceless teaching and learning from the experts in the business! Special thanks to Dr. Davis for making this happen for our students!! Thank you to Mr. Jones and Mr. Taylor for making sure the facilities were an order. Thank you all involved. #OneTeamOneDream

Mission & Vision

The vision of the DeKalb County School District is to inspire our community of learners to achieve educational excellence. Our mission is to ensure student success, leading to higher education, work, and life-long learning. We are making this vision and mission a reality – every day, in every classroom throughout the District.

Through community forums, focus groups, listening sessions, and more, we have engaged our stakeholders, refined our objectives, honed our procedures, and formulated a robust, highly-structured yet agile and adaptive strategic plan. We are pleased with the progress we have made thus far, and excited about the future – of our District, our community, and, most importantly, the 100,000+ students who daily bring to us their limitless potential.

The District has created performance measures, targets, and initiatives to ensure success in each goal area. A monitoring and data collection process has been developed, and rigorous progress check procedures have been implemented. At the local level, on-going training sessions are offered to all principals in order to support the work of aligning, refining, monitoring, and evaluating the continuous improvement efforts of each individual school.

As a community of learners, we are committed to excellence in everything we do – within the classroom and throughout the District. This continuous improvement process permeates each aspect of our Strategic Plan, and we are honored to partner with you to make it a reality for all.
