Columbia County Schools are growing by about 5,000 students each year.
Business partners, and teachers, are setting the bar higher when it comes to providing the best public education. Doing so is placing Columbia County above average when it comes to test scores.
“We're doing a better job in aligning our Georgia performance standards which is our curriculum with the common core curriculum. We are doing a better job at our schools in remediation. We also have the achievement period at our high schools and middle schools,” says Columbia County Schools Superintendent Charles Nagle.
The schools have also expanded gifted classes into larger, gifted programs in order to accommodate more students and provide better resources.
