Our District serves the communities of Columbia Heights, South Fridley and Hilltop, Minnesota. We are located directly north of Minneapolis, also neighboring the communities of Fridley, St. Anthony and New Brighton. We are a small diverse District, with five schools and approximately 3,100 K-12 learners, yet Columbia Heights Public Schools is focused on the big picture of creating College and Career-Ready Graduates for every student in our schools.
Columbia Academy students Danchau Le and Daphne Kleinschmit placed first in the Minnesota State History Day Competition, qualifying them for nationals.
Community members, along with local donors – representing foundations, businesses, memorials, individuals, and others – donated over $350,000 in scholarships to 83 Columbia Heights High School seniors at the school’s virtual Academic Awards Ceremony this week.
