Columbia High School has an enrollment of approximately 360 students for the 2016-2017 school year, and is a member of Washington State's 1A sports division, fielding varsity teams in 12 sports each year. The mighty Bruin is our mascot and our school colors are red, white, and black. Columbia High School offers a wide range of classes, including many Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Advanced Placement (AP) classes, allowing students to pursue educational paths closely tied to their future career and college directions. CHS is fully accredited through ESD112 in Vancouver, Washington.

With 38 staff members, students receive qualified instruction and support. There are seven National Board Certified teachers and five Christa McAuliffe Award of Excellence recipients on staff. Phi Delta Kappa Washington has recognized Columbia High School as a “School of Distinction” for being one of the 5% highest improving schools in the State of Washington for Reading and Math achievements over the past 5 years. But the awards are secondary to providing motivating and relevant classroom instruction. Students also rely on skilled counselors, aides and other qualified support personnel in navigating successfully in and outside of the classroom.

NEW!! Athletic registration is now carried out online. See this News Item to show you how.
