Columbian Elementary envisions a community of students, staff and families that share the joy of learning to achieve a positive impact on the global society. We serve students from Early Childhood Education (ECE) through fifth grade, and are located in the Sunnyside neighborhood. The Columbian community is committed to the actualization of our school’s vision and mission through creating a close-knit community with small class sizes.

Our ECE classes are play based and full of joy while ensuring our smallest scholars are academically challenged and engaged. Children who are three or four years old before October 1 each year may apply for our ECE program. We have full day programs for both three and four year olds.

We have two Multi-Intensive Center Programs, a Mild-Moderate Special Education teacher, Speech Therapist, Occupational and Physical Therapist and School Social Worker. Through the efforts of these professionals we are proud to be able to support the needs of all students
All students deserve to be challenged and engaged through their academic pursuits. We develop learner agency and a school culture where all students direct their own learning and participate joyfully and constructively in their classroom and community.
