    Teachers: The teachers at Columbine are amazing! They truly care about each student and go above and beyond. The science department is lacking in good teachers but the other teachers, especially honors and AP teachers, are fantastic.

    Health & Safety: The school is generally safe. I have never had any issues because the faculty and staff work hard to keep the school safe. There are Jefferson County Sheriffs inside the school to keep everything under control, and I love that!

    Extracurriculars: They have great clubs such as key club, drama, and choir. They do a great job and students are very talented. Some clubs are more involved than others, but students generally enjoy these activities so they don't mind spending some extra time with their hobbies!!
