ACCELERATED READER – The AR Program at Columbia continues to evolve. Now, many classrooms have integrated this celebrated literacy program into their English Language Arts Curriculum.  Moving students to increasingly complex books, Accelerated Reader supports goal setting for a wide range of learners.

AVID is the world-renowned college preparation program. This year, Columbia is proud to announce the addition of a section in the 8th grade as well as a long-term goal to extend AVID into 6th grade and primary grades.
Systematic ELD - Systematic ELD is a district-wide endeavor to ensure learners of the English Language acquire skills necessary to become bilingual students prepared for the rigors of middle school and high school.  Columbia's current ELL rate sits at 40%.  Systematic ELD has helped us increase our reclassification rate.
