From the Principal

Dear Cardinal Family,


In 1947, Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote, “The function of education…is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.” However, he went on to explain that educating the mind isn’t enough. He added, “Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”


Although his thoughts on education are seventy-five years old, they still are very much relevant to the mission of Columbus High School. Our drive is to ensure our students are enabled to read, write, think, and act appropriately. We desire that all our graduates leave CHS equipped to be successful and productive members of our community and an integral part of our global society. The kiddos in this community are our greatest asset, and we take great pride in helping shape each of their futures in a positive way.


We can all honor Dr. King's legacy and contribution by dedicating ourselves to perpetually "DO FOR OTHERS." As always, we are committed to creating an environment where students and teachers alike can: LEARN WITH PASSION, ACT WITH COURAGE, AND CHANGE THE WORLD! #EverUpwardCardinals



Your Partner In Education,

Mich Etzel
