 Amy’s favorite thing about Columbus Academy
Our students are the best. They are eager to learn, willing to take risks, and just plain fun. They are also tremendously appreciative of the work we do as teachers. I am always surprised by how often they thank me for just about everything, including when I hand them a quiz to take. I also value the longstanding relationships with so many alumni who come back to visit or stay in touch to update me on their lives.
