Columbia Academy is a 5 stars school by
Columbia Academy is a 5 stars school, this year its my daughter's first year and she is doing amazing. I love the small class sizes and the TEACHERS are AMAZING!!!! they trully love the kids and they are not there just because of a paycheck. Prior to make my decision my husband and I went to 6 plus other schools and nothing can top it of Columbia Academy. The school curriculum its awsome and they trully stand by their philosophy work hard and play hard. During the begining of the year my daughter was just starting to read but did not had any interest in picking up a book to read, now she is reading very well and she askes for books all the time. Our daughter loves going to school and she gets so excited on Sundays because she knows she gets to see her friends and teachers the next day. We as a parent couldn't be any happier with this school and we are looking forward to keep our daughter here at Columbia Academy until 6th grade :)
Love it!!! by
My daughter was attending a charter public school prior to Columbia, I knew she was behind and falling more behind by the year. I had asked the school to test her but they dragged their feet and got nothing done. A year ago, we checked out and had my daughter tested in 3 different private schools in the Gresham, Damascus and West Linn area. All the tests were similar in placing her, but what stood out for us was Columbia because they were willing to give her a special curriculum program set to meet her needs. She has been attending Columbia now for a year. She is happier, more confident and on the right track to catching up. I do not believe we could of seen this success anywhere else. The love and support she gets there along with a great program has been wonderful and will be for many more years :)EditDelete
We love Columbia! by
Columbia has been a life-saver for my kids. The small class sizes are amazing and the one-on-one attention each child gets to help them succeed is exceptional. The teachers are awesome and the atmosphere is full of love and understanding. My kids love to go to school and their self-confidence level is through the roof. We love Columbia!!
Best Environment for a Child by
My now 5-year old child has attended Columbia Academy for 1 year. She began reading at one month after beginning the program!!! I rate this school and "Excellent" because I feel they give personal attention to my child and let her be herself. They boost up her strengths and are aware of and improve her areas of weaknesses, keeping me fully abreast of what they observe to be true from their perspective. Columbia works with me as a parent to have my kid be the best she can be. I especially like that her teacher gave me her personal cell phone number so I feel I can text/call anytime if I have a concern. My daughter wakes up and skips to the car and says, "I LOVE SCHOOL!" I can't ask for anything more as a parent. I will definitely be sending my second child to Columbia Academy when she is old enough.
What a great school! We've been in Montessori until now but moved too far from all the good ones. So I researched high and low and found this amazing school just a couple of miles from us. The staff are friendly and professional and it's clear the children enjoy themselves and their teachers very much. My son is doing great with his lessons and looks forward to going to school every morning. Wow, did we score :)

I have three children that attend Columbia Academy and we have been part of the Columbia family for 7 years now. To say I love the school is an understatement. The amount of comfort and joy that Columbia Academy gives not only to my children but to my family is truly beyond words. The staff at Columbia care for my children as if they were their own. The structure, ethics and curriculum are amazing. If you are looking for a school for your child you should look no further. I feel blessed to have found them and I am sure anyone would feel the same.
So many things to love... by

I have a young girl in this school, and she has really grown in just 6 months. I was initially looking for a preschool situation for my daughter, as we are also supported by a great public school system here. However, I have come to see such spirit, growth and wonderful enthusiasm for learning in my daughter. I work with her each night to connect with her daily work, she really enjoys talking about her day. She has learned to read very quickly, and I am very confident that she will be well above grade level in most, if not all subject areas when she is ready to transition to another school in a few years. Although, with the way things are going, she may stay there much longer than I initially thought. I love the friendly staff, the safe location and the amazing facility.
Happy Child, Happy Parents by
We are new Columbia Academy parents and we are very happy with the school and believe we made the best choice for our child. We chose to send our 4 year old to Columbia Academy for a number of reasons. The first and foremost was that they allow the children to move along at their own pace, focusing on levels of comprehension rather than sticking to a fixed timetable for academic progress. This together with the small class sizes and commitment to learning is giving my child a great start. We have already seen great strides in his reading and his confidence.Also, it is not by chance that we have had such a smooth transition to the school. Right from the start my son was made to feel welcome and comfortable in his new classroom and he loves the hands on learning that he gets to experience. Getting up and going to school is no longer hardwork and has become a favorite part of the day.
Best school ever by
Columbia Academy has been able to offer many things to my family that no other school has. ######My son is in the 3rd grade. He has read well over 700 books since he started this program and is 6 years old. My daughter also attends the school. She just turned 5 and reads to me everyday. ######It+s not just the academics though; one of the best things I find about this school is the ethics. The kids are so well-behaved and all have such a sense of pride about helping one another. Whenever something happens to my son like falling in the mud, I never hear of another child making fun of him, but instead how they help him to the restroom with a fresh set of clothes to change into. The amount of comfort and joy that Columbia Academy gives not only to my son and daughter but to my family as well is truly beyond words.
A GREAT school for ALL students! by
Columbia Academy provides a wonderfully stimulating, nurturing, learning environment where kids really thrive. The school offers a very low student to teacher ratio. The teachers are extraordinarily dedicated to creating an energetic and enthusiastic class room that helps all of the students excel and reach their highest potential. The students foster a love of learning inside and outside of the class room. When my child wanted to attend Winter Workshop at Columbia Academy (an extension of school offered over the holiday vacation), rather than enjoy the holiday vacation at home with her family, we knew we had found an exceptional school for her!
