Have you ever wondered what makes your school special? We ask ourselves this question every day at MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, and our answer is always the same: our school is amazing because of the incredible students, parents, community partners and staff who bring it to life every day. Their energy, love and passion are contagious, and we are so grateful for everything they do to make us something great.

Last year, we asked some of our brilliant students to tell us what makes MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL special to them. We were curious to know what keeps their passion going as the weeks and months pass. Read some of the responses we received below and, from all of us, thank you for the way you bring your energy and passion to our school. We are lucky to have you at MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL!


My school is special because we have a unique system that allows us, as students, to navigate our way to a better future. We have a community of respect and love for all, regardless of status. Our goal is to make a difference in the community and in ourselves to be something better. MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL provides us with many opportunities that will help us in the future. Our school also includes all members of our families to participate in school activities, so that they know what has happened in our classes and what new ideas and opportunities are presented to us.


My MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL is special because it takes an innovative approach to education that truly nurtures students’ creativity and education while enhancing their ability to communicate successfully with people at all levels. Our MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL has created an environment that takes students well beyond the “question and answer” process associated with learning. Students have the opportunity to verbally demonstrate their responses to others through interactions from the front of the room. Community service is an important component of the program and students experience first-hand the value of contributing to those who are generally less fortunate in the community. The interaction with students that builds their self-esteem and confidence when talking with others is also unique for ninth graders – and some of them have already spoken successfully at public events – while inspiring audiences with their passion and life stories. Respect for others is very present at school. MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL truly cares about its students – and it shows in the enthusiasm in the hallways and classrooms.


My MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL is a reputable educational institution in our area. My MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL is well known for its education system. Our MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL tries to put in place a different approach to imposing studies on students. Students at our school are never forced to study just to pass. We have many fun sessions and practical sessions to understand our subject concepts. For this particular reason, I really like my MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL. Not only me, all my friends also love our school very much.

I love my school for the extra interest the teachers show in the students’ talents. Any student who demonstrates extraordinary talent is given special consideration. These students are regularly motivated with awards at school programs and appreciated at school assemblies. My MOUNT COLUMBUS INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL is the most pleasant place for me.
