Our Community


The Columbia School District is in a rural area stretching into four southeast Michigan counties. Within the district, one finds a multitude of inland lakes and plenty of recreational opportunities. The beautiful and placid atmosphere has attracted many new residents from urban areas. This influx from the cities has provided our school district with a richly diverse population and a rapidly growing business community.

In the late 1960's, the current school district was formed through the consolidation of the Brooklyn, Cement City, and Clarklake schools systems. Today the Columbia School District provides educational services for more than 1,700 students and is a Class B school system.

The Columbia School District believes that ALL students can learn and achieve mastery of essential skills. To the extent it can financially provide the physical and human resources required to meet these responsibilities, the district is dedicated to providing an environment that fosters self-esteem, self-motivation, and responsibility in our students. The district also believes education is a cooperative effort between home, school, and the community.
