Academic Pathway
A Kindergarten - 12 Academic Pathway, also known as a school feeder pattern, keeps neighborhood children together as they move upward from elementary school, to middle school, and finally to high school.

When considering a school, it’s important to evaluate what your child’s needs are socially, emotionally, and educationally. Many parents report that choosing a neighborhood school has provided them more time with their children, at home and at school. Regardless of your choice, your child will receive a quality education at a Columbus City School that is well organized, assesses the child’s progress, and teaches to high standards of education.
