Saint Columbkille is a great school. A diamond in the ruff. I am proud that one of my class mates works there and has been doing an outstanding job changing lives. Keep up the fantastic work Rosalva Escobedo! St. Columbkille number 1

St. Columbkille is a great place to learn! I am in the 8th grade and my two sisters are in the 7th and 1st grades. We all love it here and everyone is nice. No drama, the teachers really care, and just about everyone here is really smart. They offer morning and afterschool daycare and library, girls'' and boys''- soccer, basketball; co-ed spring and winter musicals, academic decathlon, student council, math club, and two reading clubs, title 1 for math and reading, volleyball, and tackle football. The school year is divided into four quarters when you can receive principal's award, perfect attendance, or honor roll. We get progress reports halfway through each quarter and report cards. In junior high, we also receive conduct cards at the end of each week to show parents how well we are bahaving and if we complete all our work. At the end of the school year, each class validictorian and salutatorian receive medals to congratulate them. Almost everyone graduates except maybe just one student and learning really is fun here! I love it and hope to send my kids here one day.
