Counselors' Corner November

November is Apply to College Month and our Seniors are Applying!

GA Student Finance Commission has compiled a list of colleges that are offering Fee Waiver Codes for Seniors to apply to college for free for the month of November. It's a great time to review this information as a family and discuss your student's future goals. Applying to college can be a tough process but together we will help your student achieve success. We will be holding in-school workshops all of November to help your Senior apply to College, please check in with them and see where they are in the process. Encourage your student to reach out to their counselor, or Post-Secondary representative if needed.

Happy Apply to College Month

November Principal's Corner

Our third month of school has been amazing! Teachers and Staff are working hard everyday to give our students a top of the line education.

Columbia High School is focused on building life long learners and providing students with valuable learning experiences in and out of the classroom. We ask that students focus on showing good character as we keep our environment safe while ensuring students are respectful, and responsible.

This month is Apply to College Month in Georgia! Students will be offered multiple experiences to begin their college application processes. We will host a college fair, FASFA application nights and days, and many more "apply to college" activities.

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.
